I do not recommend you watch The Dog Whisperer with Cesar Milan. Please do not try to follow Cesar’s Way on your own without professional supervision. The almost constantly running disclaimer that his methods should not be tried at home are there for good reasons! Be sure to check out the links to the American Veterinary Society of Animal Behavior (AVSAB) on the main resources page for more information on why I feel this way.
