He amuses me. The only thing that amuses me more is when people with about 5 minutes of actual dog experience try to mimic his methods. Every time I hear "Ssssst!" in Petsmart I just roll my eyes.

I votes "He's ok" because he does seem to have his heart in the right place. He's a great personality to watch, at least entertainment wise. He takes on cases that a lot of other trainers probably won't which is a plus. I'm not a big fan of the whole alpha roll type with a nervous or reactive dog, but he does have some good methods.

I think overall, he seems like a pretty good guy. The world (dog world included) is probably a better place with him in it.

I love that too

I put "he's ok"

I'm not a fan of his, I do not like most of his "methods" but he is helping more dogs than he's hurting.

He's okay. I like some of his methods and I dislike others.

I put he's okay. I honestly believe he can read dogs and they respond to him...I'm just not sure everyone can accomplish the same things he does using his methods.

I'm not going to pretend to be an expert on dog training or behavior. I'm still trying to potty train Dutch

Watching his show, however, I think a lot of his method is based on his personal connection with dogs. It makes for an interesting show, but it's not something that can easily be taught, and even more difficult to learn. Some people just have a very calm, almost zen-like connection with animals, and I think he's one of them. The way he establishes dominance almost immediately is fascinating, but how do you teach that?

I've also watched that show, "It's Me or the Dog" with Victoria Stilwell and I think she deals with actual methods and training tools. I found her show to be more useful as a first-time dog owner.
