It looked like CM got cornered an was very uncomfortable. I actually felt bad for him. I disagree with a lot of what host was saying. It seemed as if they only brought Him on the the show to attack him. I'm not really a CM fan but this didn't seem right.

As for the use of tools. They are tools, why not use them? Not every dog can be trained purely positive and not every dog can take corrections. I thought that's why we have all these different training techniques and tools. So we can modify styles to fit each individual dog.

That was entirely the point.

He should have known what he was going into.

LOL I have to agree with this, too. While I *do* like CM, I dont feel sorry for him in this instance. What did he think was going to happen?

At least Cesar doesn't run from being confronted.He knows that a lot of people don't like his methods,but he always faces it. That's more than a lot of less well known trainers would do.There was nothing mentioned about the good things CM has done, just bad. I am sure CM is used to it by now though.

If I was in CM's place, it would have been a fiasco, lol. What's a "barbaric spiked collar" anyway? I've never seen one. LMAO.

The host was a complete moron, I know one thing, I would take my dog to Cesar any day of the week over that idiot.

I'm not particularly a Millan advocate, but it would be quite difficult indeed to support and talk about your view of aversive conditioning if the person you are talking with is adamantly against tools that the majority think are generally ok for use- like prong and e-collars.

My take is that the majority of "average, joe-schmoe" pet owners are the type of people who view a prong collar as a torture device while in the same thought they smash their dog's face into a poo accident in the house, smack them on the head, and take them outside... Kinda hypocritical.

I'm not really making any claims about CM- there's a ton of threads here already discussing him and his tactics, but this interview would be almost impossible to get your point across. I think his "political" answers of barely (if at all) answering the question by repeating his stance on the broad topic was about the best CM could have possibly answered.

Actually, it is really only Americans that feel that prong collars and e-collars are necessary to control or train dogs. The people in England (where the host is from) and in many countries, do not find them necessary, and see them as kind of barbaric.

I personally feel there are other ways to train a dog, than using these tools. Cesar was on though when he said people are already using the tools, he shows them how to use them properly. The host was on about how easy it is for people to abuse the tools.

I am shocked at the level of intolerance there is on anyone who disagrees with Cesar, even if they come from a country where these tools are not used, and therefore not needed or recommended.
