I just came across some articles and videos about Cesar Milan... is any one aware about him? His methods of training? is he simply popular or is he effective too?

I dunno ..... I prefer Victoria Stilwell ... she really focuses on Postive Reinforcement and her training ideas don't focus on dominance.
Pros and cons. Different methods work with differrent dogs, different people. Sometimes just for different behaviors.

I really like Victoria Stilwell and her methods have done wonders with Katie. As far as Cesar Milan I have never liked or cared for him and his training methods. Matter of personal preference.
When it comes to training methods, I say go with whatever works for you. There's no one magical method. You know you and your dog, and if you think his method would work, then go with it.
Personally, I use a little from here and a little from there and a little I've come up with myself. Sally is very hard-headed and needs a much stronger method more like Cesar. But Spud is so submissive and docile, if I used Cesar's method with him, he would be a basket case.
So whatever works for you.
I love Cesar and his training methods. I have used several of his technniques, successfully and i really think he knows his dogs well.

We watch Cesar and Victoria. Both have given us some great ideas and tips on working with Coco and Abbey. We are totally dedicated to positive reinforcement and reward. Loud and aggressive would not work with either of the girls. I don't know anyone, human or dog, that likes or responds well to someone yelling or pushing them around.
All dogs are different and you just have to find out what works for each of them. Use what works and trash the rest.
