If anybody thinks Cesar Millan is cruel to dogs, try taking care of a pack of four dogs. You HAVE to be assertive.
There is a difference between being dominant and being cruel.
kicking and slapping and electrocuting and /hanging a dog by its neck/ is NOT being assertive, it’s being ABUSIVE
he has NO idea what he’s doing and i honestly have NO clue why his terrible show hasn’t been taken off air yet
I’ve had a ‘pack’ of four dogs. I had a ‘pack’ of six (two of my own, four fosters/rescue/temps) ranging from a yorkie mix who was very intensely food guarding to a pitty who had been used as a bait dog and was dog shy and had no bite inhabition.
With clicker training, patience, positive reinforcement, all the exact opposite of CM they all lived quite well together, had no issues at food time, and all but the pitty could be taken to the dog park (pitty wasn’t a problem, he just didn’t like it there and preferred playing at home) and would respond to a recall even in the middle of play. And I never had to alpha roll, correction
nudgekick or “be assertive” in any way nor use choke chains, prongs, or shock collars.
Wow! I must be magic! HOw iS PoSSiblE???
