Just thought I would share...

Earlier today I saw an episode of Dog Whisperer, and one of the segments was about a Bichon that was aggressive toward the woman of the house.  First of all I have to say is that I do not see how one of these sweet beings could get so mean toward a person  Fear Anyway, the dog was taught proper behavior (at least Cesar didn't say the fluff could not be on the bed  thumbsup ) and as a "reward" Cesar (who was a groomer before he became a self proclaimed dog behaviorist) gave the Bichon a make over.  Well, he did... he made her over into a poodle  Oh My Shaved the nose and gave long french poodle ears.... I was shocked that there were not puffs over the joints and the rest of the body shaved  lmao

Am I getting too critical in my old age??? or do I just expect too much from "experts"?  thinking

I wouldnt mind a visit from the dog whisperer either except I dont think
I could sit there and watch him be as harsh with my girls as what he is with other dogs.
I am amazed   shocking2 at how dogs listen to him and how much confidence he has in himself but,
my girls are my babies  Hug and I would hate to have to roll him around our livingroom.

Yeah... but if you "rolled him around the room"  Flex
they'd make that pay per view or something that I would miss anyway. Laughing
I know he's amazing with dogs... but did you see the one where he got bit by a bulldog?
The owner cried. (I chuckled) He did fix the dawg though. nodding

I saw the Bichon show last night as well.  Before they captioned her as a bichon, I thought she was a Maltese or mix.  I did not know that Bichons would have that temperament shocking2

I was surprised, too, but he mentioned it in one of the few episodes I saw.  And you wont get to see the technique... he just "shows off" the final mutilation   original

Well, in his book he did say his first job right after entering U.S.A. illegally was at a grooming salon.  And because the owner (a lady.... he cant remember her name) saw he was "good" with the more temperamental/aggressive dogs, invariably he wound up grooming these dogs that others (in the salon) couldn't "handle".


....as a "reward" Cesar (who was a groomer before he became a self proclaimed dog behaviorist) gave the Bichon a make over.  Well, he did... he made her over into a poodle  Oh My Shaved the nose and gave long french poodle ears.... I was shocked that there were not puffs over the joints and the rest of the body shaved  lmao

Am I getting too critical in my old age??? or do I just expect too much from "experts"?  thinking
The REWARD for being 'good' is to be turned into a Poodle shocking   No wonder Rolled Eyes Snowflake wants to be/remain 'bad' Laugh Hysterical    (I'm justkidding as denoted by my hysterical smiley..... no offense to Poodle owners!! blush2)

John, I don't No think you're being critical at all (not saying anything Shutup about old age! Stick Out Tongue).   As we all 'mature' as guardians of this beloved fluff breed (gaining more & more knowledge), it becomes harder for 'em/whoever to bullshit us that's all wink1 .... grooming-wise that is, I'm in no position to opine if Cesar's training is good or bad considering I never saw TV1 any of his shows sad (our cable service provider sucks thumbdown)


And as for Snowflake's awful Oh My temperament nono..... it must be said that bad breeding (read: puppymills and to a certain extent backyard breeders) is to blame.  The integrity of our beloved, inimitable, inherently cheerful (with a great disposition) breed has been and will continue to be compromised as long as irresponsible, ignorant and profit-driven breeders are breeding Glare
