APBC Continues to Challenge Cesar Millan
The APBC has joined with national and international behaviour and welfare organisations in condemning some of the techniques used by Cesar Millan, the self-styled “Dog Whisperer”.
APBC Chair, David Ryan says, “It is only right that people are made aware of the adverse effects that some of these training methods can have on their pets and the relationship they have with them.”
Concerns over aversive dog training techniques
- the misconceptions which underlie the use of aversive training techniques
- the development of behaviour in dogs
- the problems associated with the use of aversive training techniques
- finding a suitable trainer or behaviourist
