Having their say: Cesar Millan’s fans (and a few detractors) on TheDogs

, , Leave a comment

In the world of dog training, Cesar Millan is a divisive figure. So, it’s no surprise to me that, on this site, reaction to my personal dislike of his methods has received some interesting responses in the comment section of various posts I’ve written about Millan and his show, The Dog Whisperer. Below is a collection of some of the comments these posts have received. Read all together, the effect is a kind of koan of love, hate, and apple-lavender-lemon scented cat litter.

You have to be one of the most uninformed, mightier than thou, crappy journalists I’ve had the missfortune of reading!  You complain about Cesar and his show but what the hell are you doing to save dogs…..besides bad mouthing people who are actually doing something to help! Go back to watching “The Jersey Shore” and leave the real writing to the profesionals honey.

Do you have ANY idea how many ‘positive’ dog trainers make people uthinize dogs? Including the famous Victoria, I bet to this day ‘positive’ dog trainers have made owners uthinize tens of thousands of dogs which Cesar Millan could have saved.The most important indicator that Cesar is following nature’s way is that absolutely no dog is scared of him. Even my own dog, whom I have never laid a finger on gets anxious when he has an accident on the carpet but the dogs Cesar looks after are always extremely eager to follow him and be around him. Dogs would NOT do that if his methods were wrong or cruel.Dogs are not glass that will shatter at the slightest physical warning. Dogs are tough as hell, tougher than humans. Dogs are wild and instinctual, they don’t rationalize. You have to stop humanizing dogs. You don’t reason with a dog, you don’t take a dog to a shrink. Dogs have their own natural ways of being and those ways should be the ways we use with them. It does NOT hurt a dog when you alpha roll him, or pull on his choke collar, or touch him. You could do all of these things to me and it wouldn’t hurt a bit. You know what does hurt? A bite that comes from an untrained dog who’s owners try to make their dogs sit while he is trying to kill another dog.

I myself have proved that dominance exists, to myself. I have a golden retriever, I practice Cesar’s way and my mom doesn’t. I go to school out of town so my mom looks after my dog most of the time. When I’m not home, he’s always going crazy, barking constantly wanting things. The moment I set foot in the house all the bad behaviour instantly goes away. No barking to order anybody around, lies down silently while I put on my shoes to take him out, waits for me to lead him out the door and outside. What’s most important is that he is with me in my room and doesn’t go where my mom is unless I go there. Not to mention I haven’t had to practice any kind of physical touch for years now, not even once. I did it for a month at first, than I only used the sound from then on. He was my first dog and we had thousands of problems, it had even been an issue to give him up until I found out about the Dog Whisperer and all our lives changed.

So STFU. No one even knows you. I paid over 2000 Euro’s to trainers that didn’t help me at all. Cesar made this home a happy one so who the hell are you to critisize him? What the hell have you done for me or for tens of thousands of people and their dogs around the globe? Teaching the neighboors dog to sit as an accomplishment.

You are all jealous failures that have accomplished nothing for dogs other than teaching a few of them to sit – which means absolutely nothing to them.

Not everybody would agree with Cesar’s methods and that’s okay as hell but anybody who *hates* Cesar Millan would see a million dogs put to sleep rather than have their ego’s harmed.

The person who wrote this crap has absolutely no idea about dogs! I have been really disappointed to see articles on the internet criticizing Cesar! The dogs love him! I have tears in my eyes when I see dogs laying by his side and feeling safe after a very short amount of time and the owner is right there! People who criticize Cesar are clueless and very hateful people that know nothing about dogs! I am old and have never known being without dogs and I have learnt so much from him! I rescue rottweilers that have been ordered to be put down due to aggression! I love Cesar and can see exactly what he is talking about and he is right! If you can not centre yourself and become at peace with yourself then you will never understand this man!

Wow, this makes me wonder if you have ever even seen the show – maybe ‘you’ were confused.  Again – he says the problem is with the people, not the dog – so some people may just not have enough intelligence to understand what he does.  Perhaps you are one of those people who treats their dog like a little baby instead of the dog that he is, one of those people who contribute to the problem.  btw, glad you figured out that you need to go to the correct website, and not just assume that the url you are typing in goes to the one that you want.  Those assumptions certainly do make people look stupid.

You are an absolute idiot! Why don’t you try doing something good that can actually make a difference in the lives of others like Ceaser does…. Your views, are a complete waste of time, serving nothing but to bring others down to your low level energy state of being. You likely don’t even own a dog. They would have all disowned you! Get a life… And stop wasting ours!!! And that goes for whoever consented to the publishing of this article as well…. Do you really believe these dogs ceaser worked with we’re happier in their unbehaved state? When they weren’t getting the love from their owners b/c of the bad behavior?!!! Duh!!! It doesn’t take a genius to see that both the dogs and owners, neighbors, families and friends all benefited by ceaser correcting the bad behavior.If you get of your high chair for just a second you may be able to see what all the owners of these dogs see…. And that’s that Ceaser Milan is the Top Dog trainer in the world, he will always be… And no one can come close to his ability- nor will they ever come close!! Certainly not you- your show would be joke titled dogs in chaos… Owners going out of their minds…. Titled, “the right way” b/c I said so.  ( …. Ya see, ” I’m a journalist;)” )

I don’t understand why all the passionate negative commentators who disagree with Grossman’s point of view resort to ad hominem attacks rather than clearly articulated counter-arguments.  That doesn’t seem to be very mature.  And also most of the negative commentators refuse to apply the correct usage of “your” and “you’re,” which  belies at the very least lack of respect of proper grammar.  Isn’t dog training highly subjective, given the myriad schools of thought surrounding the discipline? Grossman is expressing a point of view, yet rather than formulating succinct and articulate comments which argue tangible different point of views defending their point of views, the acolytes of Millan resort to insult. I am not so sure Millan himself would appreciate the sort of defense you offer, disciples.
