Shhhh!

Something a little different to what I originally had planned for my next post but I just wanted to share this...

A little while ago we got a Freeview box and normally the "house" watches a channel called Dave. Everyone loves Dave. But whilst flicking through the channels we came across Cesar Millan who is The Dog Whisperer. Instantly we were all hooked. Once you get over his weird "Americanisms" (sorry to those American readers!) and listen to what he's saying, it makes for fantastic viewing.

I don't really think he helps the dogs, more the owners and teaches them how to treat their pets as pets. He's a bloody legend in my book. Simple techniques, common sense approach and an ability to know exactly when to correct a dog, marvellous!

Found a little clip on YouTube...unfortunately it doesn't show the full story but I think you'll get an idea.



Yay Cesar!

I think he's great and wonderful and also a little strange...and just a wee bit mean tot hose dogs! god, I'd hate to see what he did to mine!...one is afraid of the dark, the other refuses to get he nails cut and won't come to you unless you call her Baby Girl....her name is Maddie.

Beth - He's so not mean! I tell ya, get him over to your place, you'd be on TV! AND your dogs would be cured, in about 3 minutes! BUt you're right, he can be a little strange. Not sure if that's the Mexican in him or the American bit!

Beth said...

I say it's the American bit!!

and quit giving my kid advice!! ;)

Yeah, I like Cesar too. He's bang on the money. And so is his beard. What a beard. He could work at Kew Gardens with those grooming skills

Beth said...

An amazing guy. I'd like to hire him to teach my neighbour's dog to SHUT UP. It yaps at every living thing he sees.

Kind of difficult to understand everything Cesar says with that accent of his but the dogs obviously "get it."

Hah my dad loves this guy, too bad he hasn't learned how to make his dogs stop licking my feet whenever I go visit. Drives me nuts!

Crashdummie said...

He is so cool, simply charming & charasmatic. Cant help smiling whenever he is on tellie. And they always show these totally nut dogs.

and he tames the beats - how cool isnt that!

What's wrong with the traditional method: chasing the animal around the house, waving a rolled up newspaper, and shouting "bad dog"?

Gotta love Ceasar... :)

Toast - I'd never thought of that! Nice observation! Someone should write to him and let him know.

Beth - Next doors dog? CALM ASSERTIVE ENERGY!! Telling ya, it works!

Tina - How about having REALLY smelly feet? That might work.

Crash - He's certainly good value for money!

David - I've absolutely NO idea what's wrong with that!

Heart - And I do!
