Dog Whispering

Have you just gotten a new dog? If so, one of the things that’s running through your mind is “how am I going to train this dog?” There are a lot of dog training techniques out there. But the most effective way I have seen by far is what they call “dog whispering”. The term was popularized by the National Geographic show “Dog Whisperer” by Cesar Millan.

Dog Whispering’s philosophy revolves around the concept of the pack. The pack leader in a pack of dogs is the one who dictates the moves of the whole pack. In Dog Whisperer, Cesar Millan explains that to be able to make your dog behave properly, you must establish a relationship with your dog wherein you are his/her pack leader. When your dog recognizes you as the pack leader, Millan says that unwanted behavior would easily be removed. You would also be able to make your dog follow your commands because your dog would realize that he/she is not the dominant figure in your pack.

This is not only good for your dog’s obedience, but it will also be good for your dog’s health because unwanted behavior like intense barking, aggression, nervousness contributes to the dog’s stress level.

If your dog has unwanted behavior, try watching episodes of the Dog Whisperer and apply it to your dog. But if your dog is an extreme case, please seek professional help.
