What famous dog trainer would you hire?

If you could have a famous trainer, who would you hire to help you with your dog and why?

Mine would be Paul Owens.  Here's why:

Did you know there are more than one Dog Whisperers?  One who is the original and then Caesar Milan.  I had order two DVD's by the Dog Whisperer, thinking they were the same person.  To my surprise and later relief they were different.

I started with Caesar Milan, using a choke collar on Brut that I don't believe in and swore I would never use.  My husband was a bit more than worried about the road I was headed.  It didn't take long before I was in tears after a few times out and I never tried the method again.

That lead me to the second DVD by Paul Owens and the minute he started talking and going through the steps, I was in tears again, but good tears.  He was so kind, soft and gentle and I had a hard enough time being hard on myself.  My favorite motto from Paul is:  If it's good for you, it's good for your dog.

Finally I'd found a trainer who had the same beliefs as me and was teaching me how to be gentle and kind to me and my dog.  I didn't feel like I was using cruel and unusual punishments or domination to work with my dogs.  Following Paul Owens teachings lead to an inner healing and a learning of the basic principals that I still use today.

If I had all the money in the world I would hire Paul Owens to help us in uniting the two dog packs.  I would trust his expertise and experience in order to do that and do it in a way that we would be working together, so that Paul Owens, my husband, the dogs and I all felt comfortable.  I think that would be so awesome!  A dream come true.

So what famous trainer would you like to knock on your door to help you train your dogs?

Ceasar sucks. One of the ladies who rang me about adopting Mouse said she was a fan of his and I immediately put a big red line through her name!

As for famous dog trainers, probably Ian Dunbar.

My peeps got me two dog trainers both useless and she ditched them. They were not cruel but not kind either. So peeps just put up with my running away to hunt and slowly with love and mutual respect it got sorted. Love maybe does conquer all. Have a wonderful Wednesday.
Best wishes Molly

Patricia McConnell is another good trainer, who uses positive training methods, not outdated force-based concepts like Caesar Milan.

Patricia McConnell or Grisha Stewart. I'd want someone positive, but with a specialty in reactive/fearful dogs.

Milan is definitely at the bottom of my list...his techniques are something I would consider using. I have a local trainer that we like, but have read many things by Patricia McConnell.

I'm a strong believer in encouraging the positive. I don't believe my dogs need to be perfect, although I do ask for them to behave in public. I reward them for the good things they do and try to discourage the bad things by turning them positive. It seems to work. :D
