The Dog Whisperer is the “Dr Phil for Dogs”

by Theresa on January 17, 2009 · 4 comments

The Dog Whisperer just happens to be a new addition to the As Seen on TV site! I never personally have heard of this guy so thought I'd do a little digging to find out more.  Most people might think that he's just a pet psychic or something… Not the case though. This guy is a total genius with dogs and it has nothing to do with the supernatural.

The Dog Whisperer is actually Cesar Millan. He's basically a psychologist for pets and their owners. His [tags]dog-whisperer[/tags]show was featured on the National Geographic Channel. He definitely has an amazing ability to rehabilitate all shapes and sizes of problem dogs.

This is an interview he did with Bill O'Reilly on Fox News

The Dog Whisperer Video Clips free Online

If you want to check him out here's a link online at The Dog Whisperer that takes you to his own personal online channel. Really interesting stuff!  There's tons of information and lots of free videos, pictures and a forum. Plus an interactive guide called "Diagnose That Dog".

More Detail about the Techniques Involved

Millan is charming and highly skilled with both dogs and people. His methods are really simple but not your basic dog training like sit, stay and fetch stuff. This goes to a much deeper level. In his shows you'll see that Millan teaches owners how to act towards their dogs.

It's in dogs genetics to be a pack dominated social animal.  Millan has come up with a way to uses that pack energy to establish order. His basic rules are taught through exercise, discipline and affection.

Millan makes house calls to dog owners’ homes where they're having obedience problems with their dogs. He first watches the relationship between owner and dog and then evaluates the problems. He then shows them step by step, how to establish a better relationship with the dog through behavior modification. In many cases it's the animals who have taken control of their owners.

The only problem I could see with these shows is the repetitive content. The reason is that Millans’ methods are quite simple and dog's behavior problems aren't that varied. I can see that Millan tries to mix things up a bit to make the show more interesting. That's why I thought the DVD's might be nice if you just wanted to get to the point about what it is you need to see.

The Dog Whisperer videos, I watched at the National Geographic site were really amazing. What surprised me most is that I thought some dogs were beyond help. In the end their behavior improved dramatically. There’s a mountain of evidence that his method works and many positive comments about his show. Although you don't need the DVD's if you want to get see the shows for free on the National Geographic Channel. I've also seen a whole series of them on Youtube as well. And now that your dog's all trained up...just for fun check out the review on the Pooch IQ Test!

Hi Sandy,

Also I noticed that Cesar is on Facebook and Twitter. You can follow those links and try asking him questions there. If that doesn’t work at his site http://www.cesarmillaninc.com/tips there is a really neat interactive course you can take depending on what your dogs issues are. You can see it right here.

Hope this helps!

Hello Dillan,

It looks like you’re looking for someone to come to your home right away. I’ve done some research and found that Cesar suggests these steps.

Also Cesar also has an online course and a community forum where others can help you answer your questions and concerns. It’s all part of the package when you sign up. Hope this helps you…
