Well, no offense but since you made the point, you should cite. However, I did Google it and I could not find any unbiased source. All that I found was in 2006 where he was being sued by his producer but nothing on the verdict.
ETA: I went on youtube and still nothing. Honestly the people who accuse him of mistreatment are people who baby their dogs. Dogs are animals who use physical touch to dominate. I find it hysterical when people allow dogs to use their body and their mouths and yet make excuses for them. My aunt has a huge dog that jumps up on people when they come through the door and nips them. She says" he is just saying hello". Unbelievable.
Sory, but I was on my phone, so I can't get you sites.
If you look you can find stuff on him.
Dogs are not wolves, they do not "dominate" like wolves. You can get hurt by doing the things the dog wisperer does. A lot of dogs will bit people in the face if they trie to roll then like he does.
His shows SHOW more than once that he has kicked the snot out of a dog. Dogs are NOT horses you can NOT use any dominace. Go to any dog forum, and I garuntee you that they will chace you off with your tail between your legs if you even mention his name.
I can't find the video where he hangs the dog till his toung turned blue, but you can even see in this video, that he is choking the dog.
Here is one with him kicking dogs. I'm a dog trainer, that is my job, If I ever did half the crap this man gets away with, I'm be so fired. This is a quote from a comment on this video that could not be more true.
"cesar is actually an awful trainer. His methods work in scaring the dog into submission, but they don't teach the dog proper behavior. He teaches people to be dominant over their dogs so that the dogs fall in line. Why not just teach the dog that good behavior has good rewards?
His method: if a dog behaves badly, punish it
Better method: If a dog behaves properly, reward it
Less chance of the dog eventually snapping from the constant negative training and a greater bond between you and pet"
He only gets away with this, because he has a TV show. If you fallow his methods then you have a death wish.
It looks like most of the videos have been removed, and all the links to his laws suits have been taken down. I had them all saved in my favorites, and most are gone. One of his biggest law suits was on the news. Some of his staff that work for him, ran a dog to death on a tred mill.
