Dog Whisperer versus the others


The wonderful dog writer Denise Flaim reviews the Dog Whisperer Cesar Millan’s new book, Be the Pack Leader. She notes:

One of the criticisms of Millan’s first, chart-topping book, “Cesar’s Way,” was that it offered little in the way of specifics. Along with plenty of case studies, Millan’s second effort offers a few more tangibles, including a pie chart divvying up the components of an hour-long walk; analyses of different behavior-modification tools, from citronella collars to scat mats; and a discussion of breed differences.

In the same column, Flaim also looks at new books by more mild-mannered trainers who take exception to Cesar’s methods. Et tu Denise.
