IMPORTANT NOTE: I do not condone Cesar Millan’s flooding and dominance/physical punishment-based training methods, including alpha-rolling and leash jerking, but National Geographic Channel’s Dog Whisperer show provides some good information on dog training and behavior. If you watch this show, please use your good judgement and discretion and understand that there can be negative side effects from using some of Cesar’s techniques.
