Cesar Millan: A Dog's Best Friend

Dog Whisperer is a National Geographic Channel reality TV series in which Cesar Millan, a self-proclaimed dog behaviorist, rehabilitates unruly dogs and teaches their owners proper canine training techniques. Though he has no formal certification, Millan believes his early observations of his family's farm dogs give him unique insight into pack mentality. In 2006, Millan published Cesar's Way, a guide to dog psychology. What are the three principles of Millan's training philosophy? More...

Dog Whisperer. This man can really understand what's on a dog's mind. Still, I have known dogs in my life, with whom, I am afraid, even Cesar could not cope. Some dogs are just impossible to deal with.

Cesar's fulfillment formula.

Every dog and puppy need...
1. EXERCISE - in the form of a minimum of two structured walks with a pack leader, twice a day preferably.
2. DISCIPLINE - clearly communicated and consistently enforced, rules, boundaries, and limitations
3. AFFECTION - in the form of physical affection, praise, treats and playtime

I haven't the faintest, but I bet Cesar Milan has an über-balanced bank account.

I just have this cultural problem with an animal you have to take for walks.

I thoroughly agree with his philosophy that dogs should be treated as dogs not humans or children or toys. Or fashion accessories.
But I have always found it hard to understand a relationship with an animal which is so passive - waiting to be taken for a walk.
Lots of people in Iceland have dogs but they get exercise by working, or playing with the kids outside. They walk with you - not a chore the owner does for the dog. A lot of people think It is unnatural and unfair to have dogs in the city - you need the permission of your neighbours if you are in a communal living space, and you need two referees to vouch for you before you can get a licence.
In Britain, I see lots of kids afraid of dogs. But really that is they cannot trust the owners to be good owners. Humans'relationship with dogs seems to be off balance. Making the owners act as pack leaders may be a good start, but is it natural for a dog to be 'taken out for a walk' twice a day, like a prisoner allowed out of his cell?
This is not really criticism, more bafflement.
