Why? Because the basic foundation of dog training is ‘do not harm’ and Cesar Millan – with his domineering training style is actually doing harm and putting inexperienced dog owners in danger.
Justin Silver in his new show ‘Dogs In The City’ at least doesn’t do that. And that’s where my praise of Justin and the show ends.
The problem is – the producers of the show have chosen to play the ‘idiot’ card presenting the audience with an collection of imbeciles unfit not only to own dog but to function in society.
Justin’s background is in stand-up comedy and that tell you something about what the show’s makers are aiming for.
Justin’s advice sounds reasonable but I wonder weather the owners he coaches may be beyond help. Moreover, I don’t see how anything he says could be of any benefit for an average dog owner looking to train a better dog.
Aiming for cheap laughs misses a real opportunity to educate the public about improving dog behaviour.
For those of you looking to benefit from Justin Silver’s training methods I summarised them neatly in my article ‘How To Train Your Dog Like Justin Silver’.
