I will never understand the disdain on this website for Cesar. He is a very knowledgeable trainer, with proven methods for the specific problem he addresses: casual dog owners with common, simple behavior problems in pet dogs.
Most importantly, he (for the first time ever) has shown millions of average people sitting at home that they can and should relate to their dogs as dogs, and discipline and train them, and that the bad habits can be broken and the dog behave properly. I don't recall anyone with that message reaching such an audience as he has. IMHO he has performed a very valuable service to dog owners and those who have to be around dogs, and if he has been paid well and parlayed his fame into money, good for him.
