After reading a few comments since this blog post went up I am finding that there are more views AGAINST Milan's method of teaching than in favor. I have to agree. Yes, he does seem to get results; however, he intimidates the dogs to the extent that they obey not out of learning from guidance and understanding but through fear and pain. I once read that for his half hour show many hours of his "method" take place before the camera rolls and many outtakes hit the editing floor. Frankly, all I would need would be to see him pinch or punch one of my dogs - just once- and I'd be the one pinching and poking Cesar! However, my opinions and comments are my own and I do not wish to influence anyone else.
Now, on to the article:
Shh. What's that? It's either the rustling of money or Cesar Millan whispering about a new venture...maybe both.
The canine trainer famously known as The Dog Whisperer is launching a new magazine called Cesar's Way. This is in addition to his book, products and TV show about helping dogs with behavior issues.
The Wall Street Journal reports: Cesar's Way, which hits newsstands next week, is filled with slick photos of celebrities such as Mariah Carey, Paris Hilton and Jennifer Aniston with pets in tow. Articles include "Can Your Dog Fix Your Marriage? Just Ask Jada Pinkett Smith" and "7-Day Doggie Detox." IMG says it plans to publish two issues this year and six in 2010.
