Question by Maggie P: What do people think of the dog whisperer and other dog TV shows?
I wanted to know how people felt about the dog whisperer and his methods. I often see answers to dog posts that say, “Watch Cesar Milan.” As a trainer, shower and groomer, I have had a fair amount of experience with dogs and behavior, and I like the principals that Cesar lays down about communicating with dogs. That said, he uses some methods that I don't agree with (though I suppose no two trainers agree). The one problem that I have with him is that he doesn't emphasize the importance of seeing a trainer on his show. Oftentimes I feel that people are too willing to “self diagnose” dogs after watching him and accidentally interpret fear or play as aggression. If a dog has a problem that could be dangerous, in my opinion, the safest option is to seek a pro. What are other people's opinion on the dog whisperer and other shows like it as dog advice?

I've only seen it once and it was just the other day! I liked it I thought he was good but I would definately take my dog to a trainer or veterinarian if we were having any behavioral issues or health issues because watching tv and applying it to your own life usually isnt a good idea. And like people, all dogs or even dogs of the same breed are not all the same.
