10 things about Emmy-winning dog trainer Cesar Millan

There are 472 comments on the www.freep.com story from Mar 22, 2008, titled 10 things about Emmy-winning dog trainer Cesar Millan. In it, www.freep.com reports that:

As founder of the Dog Psychology Center, a rehabilitation facility in south central Los Angeles for troubled dogs, Millan is famous for turning the most problematic pooch into a good citizen -- which means one who doesn't bite or pull at the leash or misbehave. Dogs, he says, are pack animals who need a pack leader. Once an owner decides to be leader of the pack, the dog will become what Millan calls "calm-submissive" and well-behaved.

there is no way he could have won an emmy award. ceaser sux! all he talks about is being the dominet one or pack leader. thats just crap. that alpha roll he always does is stupid. i am a victoria stilwell fan and i totally disagree with his methods. that alpha roll he always does is stupid. it can make a dog bite/ or fear its owner. it's also threatning and makes the dog worse. no wonder ceaser has got bitten b4. he deserves that. studys show that most dogs respond better 2 positive training than ceaser's type of training. victoria has said all these things one some of her episodes. if u want ur dog 2 fear or eventually bite u than follow ceaser's methods. if u want a confiedent and well behaved dog than follow victoria's advice. plus she accually does things 2 help rscue dogs and she starts fundraisers 2 help sick dogs. she is also involved in a lot of stuff to stop puppy mills. i bet ceaser doesnt even do that stuff. u can tell how much awesomer victoria is than ceaser. i luv u victoria!!!!!! u rock!!!!
I like Victoria Stillwell, but I love Cesar. They both have their methods and you need to use the one that suits YOU better. I have used Cesars methods and my dog has no fear at all of me. Nothing he does is painful or makes a dog fearful. As he says, you never correct a dog when you are upset. An angry owner CAN instill fear in a dog. Staying calm and firm is essential.

According to Wikipedia:

"Millan lives in Santa Clarita with his husband, Jose Rodriguez Morales Gonzalez Wilson Millan, and their sons, Andre (b. 1995) and Calvin (b. 2001). Millan's son, Andre, has a dog named Apollo as featured on an episode of The Dog Whisperer."

Apparently you didnt read Wikipedia very well. His WIFES name is Illusion. As for helping dogs, he has the Cesar and Illusion Millan Foundation, Cesar Millan Kids, Rescued dogs after Katrina and Gustav, they support over 60 shelters and other projects are one for teens called K9 connection, for inmates, Pups on Parade and Pets911.
So if you dont like him, listen to Victoria, but either way, train your dog.

So what if he was gay,( which he is not) what would that have to do with him being a good dog trainer. Being gay is a sexual preference, it has nothing at all to do with what you can do as a person.
Yes, you are right, Cesar is a good trainer, and this has nothing to do with sexual preference. But if someone is hiding sexual preference, which is something so innately natural, they truly cannot be all that they can be, in any field. I was once "married with kids" to a man just like Cesar Millan. He thought he was straight for years, mostly because that is what he wanted so badly. In any case, because of this, and because of the damage that a lie like this causes, I have to say that I truly believe that Cesar Millan is also a closeted gay man. And his wife, Ilusion ("illusion" pretty apropos in this case), is just as closeted in this lie as he is. Still it is true, sexual preference and even the lie of it, is personal. And I do wish him and his family all the continued success in the world. But what I wish them even more, is success of the internal sort, that has to do with true courage and honesty on a very personal level.

Some of Cesar's technique I agree with and other things I would not personally try. I use a martingale on my dog because he sometimes forgets himself and how huge he is and the martingale reminds him not to pull.(A martingale is a wide band which tightens if he pulls.) I didn't think Cesar was in favor of choke chains as they are narrow and tend to rest on the most powerful part of the dog's neck and that his Illusion collar is based on the martingale idea. Maybe I'm mistaken about the choke chain...
My great hairy one is family and, in some respects, my kid. That does not mean he gets treated as a human....which would confuse and confound the poor boy. He's a dog and that, in itself, is a very good thing to be in the scheme of things, I think.
Cesar uses the chain on only the most strong and assertive dogs. The chain is not used to "choke". It is not used in that manner at all. It is used to put an unpleasant pressure just behind the ears on the bony part of the skull. This is a very sensitive area. The leash is pulled straight up to do this. Once it is habitual, just a tug to make the clanking noise will usually break the dog's concentration and bring attention back to the owner at the end of the leash. Watch carefully and you will see he uses the lightweight lead in the same way. It is just that some tough dogs don't even notice the lead tapping behind the ears. Cesar claims this is the spot that dominant dogs will grab at a subordinate with a light bite--- to assert control and correction, so he is simulating that communication.

Sounds like you are jealous of his training skills and success.
May we assume Robotech is 100% Native American? Certainly he didn't arrive here from some other land, even via ancestry! I can guarantee that Cesar's family was already here before Robo's family arrived. It wasn't until the white guys arrived that borders were drawn in the sand and laws were passed separating human beings into categories.
