Positive Reinforcement & Cesar Milan?
Here' s a chance to provide some positive reinforcement to a reporter who dared to question whether the Dog Whisperer Cesar Millan is really the greatest thing since sliced bread.
Joel Moreno at KOMO in Seattle did a Problem Solvers piece that asked, respectfully and with intelligence, whether these training methods really get the results or maybe are creating ticking time bombs.
Apparently, CM's fans didn't take kindly to any questioning of their hero, and the emails flooded in.
But there was also response from positive trainers who cringe every time they hear, "I did what I saw the Dog Whisperer do..." They sent emails of support & thanks to Mr. Moreno. The effort of a few minutes can and has made a difference - take the time to speak up. After all, as the saying goes, all that's necessary for evil to prevail is for good men to do nothing. Yelling at the TV or refusing to watching Mr. Millan is not productive. Speaking up is!
Then send a brief message of thanks & perhaps something about positive dog training to Moreno. It's not easy to stand up against the tide of popular opinion, and those who do should receive clear messages of gratitude from us.
