Once again I don't see how spraying a dog with water which is what Steve Austin recommends or tying them up for bad behaviour is in tune with the dogs interests.
I have not mentioned spraying dogs with water, Steve Austin, or tying up dogs once.
What is in the dogs interest is to trust a strong leader to keep them safe and provide what they need.
This is a completely unsubstantiated assertion. You need to argue for this, and if successful, will establish it. But you cannot just assume it from the start.
There are many ways to guide a child to be obedient & it is different for every child.
This reply is quite vague, and even though I do not suspect you condone it, I must ask, just to be sure: Do you think that one of the ways to guide a child to be obedient is to treat them as Cesar Milan treats dogs?
Look of course I am defending Cesar, my dogs are beautiful and balanced since I used his techniques, what better evidence do I personally need. They play nicely with other dogs at the dog park, walk nicely beside me on a leash, they listen when asked, play nicely with kids, they are not a lawsuit waiting to happen because I tell them when they are partaking in unwanted behaviour. Emotional issues are clear in dogs, they don't conceal them like people do, my dogs do not have emotional issues from being told No.
Since you have not yet supplied a definition of a 'balanced' dog, one can only assume that what you mean by a balanced dog is one acting like one of Cesar Milan's dogs. In which case I agree, your dogs are 'balanced.' But as the articles I provided show, many experts in dog training disagree with Milan's (and by extension, your) definition of 'balanced.'
I'm sorry but all the reasons you gave for a 'balanced' dog sound like the dog is acting in your interests, there is no indication you are acting in the dogs interests. You don't need to justify your techniques to us, yet you have offered your testimony as evidence in favour of the credibility of Cesar Milan and his methods. So your techniques will have to be assessed if they are going to be used as evidence.
Still no comment on the articles.
