    Training for any new dog or puppy is really important, and the best way to train them is by following the videos and program on

    Positive only dog training, by the people who brought you "time out", spanking = abuse, and narcassim= self esteem. It didn't work on kids, it doesn't work on dogs, but if you don't follow their method they will want to have you arrested. Wonderful bunch, so caring and kind, they care more about their idealogy than actual people. But hey, it's for the kids! or puppies! Who can argue against that?

    if we had training methods for new dog owners before they get animals then we wouldn't have as many dogs in shelters. half of the dogs that are in shelters is because owners especially new dog owners don't know what they are doing with them. then when a dog has a problem the only way they know how to deal with it is to get rid of the dog. owners need educated and trained first then they are ready for there 4 legged companion.

    I don't understand why everyone is up in arms about Cesar, have you guys watched his stuff? It's "outdated" and he trains dogs to be "unhappy" or "ticking time bombs". Obviously you all haven't watched his things because his center is filled with 30 or more well behaved, well socialized, happy dogs. His main dog Daddy is a beautiful pit that is literally the perfect example of a dog, although you may disagree with his methods the guy knows what he is doing and he never gives up or recommends euthanasia

    No one said anything about hitting the dog lady. You can use your own body language and energy to control a dog. but are you going to use positive reinforcement when an aggressive German Shepard lunges at you? No, you're going to ignore it and THEN its gonna get worse.

    Toataly agree. People say you should just face the problem. In positive reinforcement training you stop the behavior before the dog turns reactive and turns whatever is making the dog react in this way a good thing. Just because caser has a tv show and is the "dog whisper" doesnt mean he is good. It is proven that dogs do better on positive methods. Anyone could clicker train a dog, i had a very rective dog and i am 14 and got myself a clicker and over the summer clicker trained him to…..

    This video is directed to Cesar Millan (Dog Whisperer)
    I dont agree with her method of training.

    What a bunch of fucking bullshit, you should definetely combine both positive and punitive training. Dogs will always have the instinct that they WANT to follow and do what their told. They will ONLY learn by their mistakes if you add a punitive way to your training. Just because this stupid woman got a english accent doesnt mean she's smart. GET FUCKING REAL.

    There's something incoherent in the fact that most supporters of positive training seem to be in some kind of war against Cesar Millan, or whatever.  I mean, they're positive when it comes to deal with dogs, but apparently with humans they work it from the negative point, criticizing and ranting…. I want to know their work, not their traumas.

    So how would Victoria handle a vicious dog fight where they're ripping each other apart, yet neither dig has ever behaved this way before? Will her treat giving method of rewarding work to stop that immediate fight???

    Absolute BS when ppl keep ranting about how cruel Cesar Milan's methods are. Go and watch exactly how a mother Dog corrects her young puppy's….she certainly doesn't stop, get out her back of treats and reward the good behaviour when it pops up! Instead, she dies EXACTLY what Cesar dies, she gently, yet assertively first nips the side of her pup, and if needed, further pins her pup on its side for ten seconds until submission is reached, for its own safety! Dogs ARE NOT HUMAN, so please stop using child-like analogies or human examples to explain how we need to think about a dogs feelings when disciplining appropriately, because dogs ARE naturally part if a greater pack in their lives, and fit in accordingly. Stop assuming the dog that receives a firm mother-dog like nudge is actually sad, angry, resentful blah blah. They are not humans and therefore do not feel human feelings that we project upon them. Cesar Milan often highlights assertive discipline because he often deals with red zone dogs…dogs btw that Victoria Stillwell and her Positive reinforcement peeps usually suggest we euthanise…yet he ALWAYS emphasises that BOTH positive and assertive pack leader training are valuable depending upon that particular dogs needs. Ppl only see what they want to see. Mother natures way worked best b4 we humans came into dogs lives, and projected our human emotions on our domesticated dogs. Now we have intolerant trainers who shoot down others trainers who choose varied approaches. Those who claim Cesar Millan uses violence clearly have only seen and heard basic sound bites of parts of his shows. Instead, sit down and watch his shows properly and then tell me he is violent and barbaric.

    I'm interested in why the legs apart? Is this kaka move to higher viewership or something :)? Where can I see how to react when two dogs attack? As with Cesar Millan clearly shows how to react in such situations! .. There is just too much talk and not show it in practice!

    It's absolutely discomforting if your canine keeps jumping on people.

    Positive reinforcement is really good for fearful dog while the traditional method will just make it worst. Our dog is a fearful dog and we have tried both method. The result is that  the dog become more fear and aggressive when we use the traditional method. Surprisingly, he is become calmer and more discipline when we use the positive reinforcement. By using this method, our dog have learnt so much. Including all dog tricks, and he is happy by doing it. 🙂
    Thanks for uploading the video, please keep the upload. 🙂

    I think you spend over 3/4 of you training videos talking about what NOT to do, every thing you say is bad is Cesar Millan's tactics. CESAR MILLAN is great, much better than you!

  23. Susan Courtney March 23, 2015 at 7:15 am - Reply

    What she says is great. But then, she won't work with a difficult dog. She recommends Prozac. She recommends euthanasia for dogs that are too difficult for her method. She clearly doesn't know anything about dogs.

    Everything she says here about positive reinforcement has been proven by pretty much any psychologist or behavior expert. Pavlov conditioned his dogs, Skinner positively reinforced his rats, and circus trainers have used "shaping" to train elephants and lions. Positive reinforcement is used in teaching children and can even be used on adults. It is powerful stuff, don't knock it.

    What a sad lady.  She's lost to Cesar and now she bashes him and his methods at any chance.  Half way through the video she starts a monologue about how bad his techniques are and how you change aggressive dogs to behave using positive reinforcements. Fine, I say go for it.  I'm looking at 52 videos on dog training and none of them are about or with aggressive dogs.  

    I think Ms. Stilwell's methods are great for a puppy and to train a young dog before problems but she doesn't work with "red zone" dogs.

    Even tho victoria may have not Worked with 'red zone' dogs as what we have seen, that doesn't mean that positive reinforcement doesn't work with 'red zone' dogs it aggressive dogs, I have worked and witnessed trainers work with 'red zone' dogs using purely positive methods, and each one was successful and those dogs have a happy life and so do there owners. Yes everyone is open to there opinions but I think that comparing two trainers is not the same as comparing methods, I don't think it's fair to say positive reinforcement doesn't work just because someone may not like the trainer 🙂 I love purely positive methods and so do my dogs! 🙂

    Victoria has worked with many "red zone" dogs. This approach with this type of training isn't just about using treats. Animal behavior is an actual science and behaviorists have spent over a decade studying the principles of learning. You can't through years of research and studies down the drain because you think it doesn't work or know enough about it. Studies have shown that positive reinforcement without the use of compulsion is effective in the long run.
    Here is a study on written by a PhD comparing the two methods

    Yes ! Positive reinforcement ! As She sits there with an Older looking Dog vs a Hyperactive Puppy…..Why don't you SHOW US your strategies on newly housed Pups & Red Zone Dogs, Since you swear by your method. When you have hard worked evidence to prove your method effective Instead of "In My book" (Marketing hook) & "It's proven by dog blah blah blah". Just because your method Is supposedly proven to work because Is was said by the next guy, Doesn't mean It'll be effective with all breeds & mixed breed Dogs. Show Me your method In action !

    Firstly, why do you spread your legs like that?? It is indecent, Victoria!
    Secondly, positive reinforcement is just one of the four methods to control behaviour: the combinations of Positive and Negative Reinforcement and Punishment. Recklessly using only one, clearly means lack of balance, so bad results. Open your mind.
