My wife and I are big fans of his too!! He truly has a gift! We are going to his show in winnipeg I can't wait! I'd be surprised if he was calling down women. on his show and in his books he always talks about how he loves to empower women especially with powerfull breeds.
Hunterchrome - good luck!
I think the woman that wrote in to the GOSSIP columnist had a chip on her shoulder, she writes somewhere in there something to the affect that she went to the show with another person's opinion on her mind that he was a prick so it would seem she was fishing for evidence of just that. He's not perfect & does not claim to be. Everyone can be a prick here & there & omg when you have a large audience like that you cannot possibly please everyone & some are undoubtedly going to be offended.
Some people need to just lighten up.

I will let you all know what happens saturday with his selection process. I was disappointed to find out the problem they wanted to fix was Hunter's eating too fast. That is so minor compared to other things that need to be fixed. If thats what gets us an opportunity to meet cesar milan, sure why not. We won't feed him before the show, he won't have eaten since 7am, he is gonna be hungry.... However if you ask him he is always hungry no matter what.
Hunter & Chrome
I'm glad you went and that you had fun!!!
just saw the show - they are looking for very specific issues to present in the show - they did the crazy food issue at our show. I think their goal is to pick some of hte more common problems that can be addressed in that setting in a quick way. Like I said, I had been interested in contact him for my foster because of leash reactivity but they stated those are not the type of things they are looking to address in the stage setting.
CM is a really great speaker. The show was alot of fun, he is very entertaining. I agree with most of his philosophy (about exercise, "dicisipline" which I see as training/mental stimulation, affection) though I have not see his show so there may be some things I disagree with (I disagree with some thing or another with most traininers, but mostly believe different things work better for different dogs).
CUTEST chocolate lab puppy was on stage! honestly didn't pay much attention to CM while that pup was there
It was great! He's very funny and inspirational. He did some hilarious impersonations of people interacting with dogs - the high-pitched squeeky voice with puppies; nononononon, stop, don'tdothat, leaveitleaveitleaveit...
I've used his "no touch, no talk, no eye contact" approach for people who want to rush in to the house and pet Maggie, and it definitely puts her at ease (she clearly gives signals of discomfort, turning her head away and grumbling in her throat, but some people --even dog people -- don't "read" dog).
He stressed that the calm, relaxed state is best for many situations -- sitting is not enough. Corby and Maggie know they must sit quietly before they'll get fed, but now I see the difference between a relaxed sit and a still waiting-to-pounce-on-breakfast sit.
