Just to spite this thread and most of these arguments, I really want to purchase and attend the CM lessons.

This is why I train using German commands and he can 'psst psst' all he wants, it's funny watching him.
I recall seeing someone (in a dog park)attempting to calm their over rambunctious dog with non stop sshhhts . Every time he did one, the dog became even more agitated.
A few seconds later, the dog redirected his frustration on another nearby dog.

I don't know about others, but I've been to puppy class 1-3,, have over 2k posts on this forum, and I still don't know what I'm doing.

My whole point of this thread was not in any way intended to insult CM, it was more of a question of whether or not one can TRULY learn how to handle their dogs in a week.
My own personal experience tells me NO.
OTOH, if CM wants to sensationalize his celebrity status, and charge 6k for a first hand experience, that's his prerogative. However, IMO it contradicts the CM we've all grown to love. . .

I don't think it contradicts him at all. And he caters to the American pet owner. One that sees a problem and wants it fixed tomorrow. How many people have come onto this forum asking for a quick fix for the DA, HA, or any other type of aggressive dog. They want there to be a magical training technique that within days will heal their dog and they'll be able to go off leash to the dog park like all their friends do. Or to take it away from aggression, the "my 4 month old puppy won't come to me outside, how do I work on his recall?"

I've only seen Cesar recommend a training regimen to a few dogs. Dogs who were clearly under trained and needed a job. One of these was a GSD. He does tell the owners how to fix things, make sure you work on it daily, ect. But he's not really there on a consistent basis to work with them and their dog.

I think to all of us a lot of his solutions are not what we would go with as our first, second, or third choice. We all understand that the way to solve problems is to work with a dog for weeks, months, or even years. But the public at large doesn't want that. They want their dog to be fixed within an 8 week session of training classes at petco, or a one time visit by a $100 an hour behaviorist. Tell you the truth, I feel like to many people its cost/benefit. Cheaper to dump problem dog and adopt a new dog without said problems. Or the...I've paid $100 for this dog, why would I spend $1000 trying to fix its issue?

True. It is just like Americans to screw up their dogs, then look for a quick fix, if none is to be found, out with the dog.

A stereotype? Thank goodness that the Slobovians don't expect any quick fixes for their dog training problems.

Non stop sshhhts are just bad in any environment.

6 grand is cheap compared to Don Sullivan's 6 week course...50 grand! And I watched his video...he just seems MEAN to the dogs. 50 GRAND!!! (I included the link for his course below.)

I dunno. The 50 grand might be a better deal. You get Don and his team for six, six day weeks, at your home location. So, I take it you don't have to buy air-fair and hotel rooms, etc. And for you all, taking one or even two dogs on a trip for a week would be cheaper, but if I could get a team of dog experts at my home willing to work with me and all my dogs, that would actually be cheaper.

But I don't have 6k or 50k and don't need it anyhow.

I think I would get more out of a six week course than I would out of a week, where the celeb is only doing part of it, and then is probably got a bunch of people enlisted. I mean you get a cheaper rate taking group classes in training or group therapy (which you probably need if you would consider either) than you pay for individual sessions.
