Roller Coaster Life of Cesar Millan: Petcube Chooses Him as a Spokesperson

I almost feel sorry for the famed Dog Whisperer, Cesar Millan after watching this video: And this video only offers the highlights – both good and not so good. While all our lives are a bit of a roller coaster, his has been a particularly wild ride. I am writing about Millan again because Petcube, a…

Cesar Millan Eludes Animal Cruelty Charge

“Dog Whisperer” Cesar Millan eludes facing animal cruelty charges, following an investigation by the Los Angeles County Animal Control. Recently, Millan allowed (and some might argue encouraged) a dog named Simon to attack a pig. That’s right, a pig. I wrote about what went wrong on that episode of Cesar 99, which aired on Nat Geo Wild.…

Society of Animal Behavior Questions Cesar Millan Methods

Cesar Millan goes by his gut, and his own experiences….that’s fine, except he’s also ‘teaching’ millions watching on TV. Over the years, some of those methods have clearly been inhumane, and his general approach is based on dominance theory – that if you don’t dominate your dog, your dog with dominate you. That’s rubbish!! Still,…

What Has Cesar Millan Learned?

Cesar Millan is still the dog screamer. I am truly saddened by the episode which Millan allowed (and some might argue encouraged) a dog named Simon to attack a pig. Millan is now being investigated for animal cruelty as a result. My “relationship” with Cesar Millan dates back to 2006, I was one of the…

Highlights of Twenty Years of Pet Writing

Summing up twenty years isn’t easy, as I begin my third decade of writing my Tribune Content Agency newspaper column I have a wealth of memories to recall. I was the first journalist to speak with a search and rescue dog handler at the World Trade Center, within 48 hours after September 11, 2001.  Driving…

Sophia Yin, Lorie Huston: Giant Contributions for Pets

 Dr. Sophia Yin, an applied animal behaviorist, was one of the first to join my public outcry of then-popular dog trainer Cesar Millan’s emphasis on forceful, aversive dog training as well as conveying misleading messages regarding dog behavior. In a 2005 newspaper piece for this column, Yin said of Millan, “He seems to have found success…

Dog Behavior Book, American College of Veterinary Behaviorists

To this day, Google “dog screamer” in the number one position, up pops a story I wrote for this national newspaper column, called “He Ought To Call Himself the Dog Screamer.” That column, written back in 2006, went crazy viral. I received hundreds of pieces of hate email because I dared express concerns about dog…

Bill Leff WGN Podcast: Obama and Service Dogs; Pets on Halloween; Fixing Werewolves and More

I talk about a wide variety of topics with Bill Leff of WGN Radio. LISTEN HERE Bill Leff  was a problem for me….I couldn’t stop laughing….Always enjoy appearing on Bill’s show – but my stomach hurt by the time this guest shot was over. I seriously did speak about the VA’s sudden suspension of support of service…

Nailing Cesar Millan With Tough, Truthful, Appropriate Questions – It's About Time

Cesar Millan finally gets his….I was certain I may have been the only TV/radio personality to directly confront Millan on-air. I don’t know UK TV host Alan Titchmarsh, but I most certainly celebrate his direct approach. He’s asked the right questions. It’s the American Humane Association who negotiated at the time with the National Geographic…
