I hadn't really watched his show before, and was appalled when I finally sat down and watched it. His training methods are abusive, horribly out of date, not supported by science, create an adversarial relationship between owners and their dogs, and make dogs fearful and aggressive. Alpha rolls and choke chains were archaic even 20 years ago. I've seen clips where he kicked a dog (then laughed about it), and even used a shock collar on one of them. This guy has set dog training back decades to the old punishment/dominance model that got thrown out because it's crap and doesn't work. He's really just taken other peoples' bad ideas and presented them as his own to people who don't know any better. About the only thing he gets right is that dogs need plenty of exercise. He doesn't even really understand dog body language, despite labeling himself "the dog whisperer." Dogs are not submitting when you put them in an alpha roll. They're shutting down. There's a big difference. A dog that shuts down is full of fear and resentment, and is likely to lash out at you later. Dogs are like any other animal. They learn best through positive reinforcement. You don't need to kick the shit out of them, or engage in some kind of macho dominance struggle where you "act alpha" to get them to behave properly. Dominance theory doesn't even apply to modern domesticated dogs. When your dog does something you don't like, it's not trying to dominate you. It probably just doesn't understand what you want. If any of you guys have dogs and are thinking about training them, don't watch this douche's show. His methods are a great way to get yourself bitten.
