    He did pull two dogs apart. I forget the name of the episode, but because he did, the one dog ended up needing a bunch of stitches in her mouth, and it could have been avoided if Cesar had a break stick nearby.

    I thought that was the owners that did that I guess I was wrong, I know I remember seeing him holding them a bunch of times till they let go, I'm ganna have to find that episode and watch it, its the one with the 2 pits that fight and he takes one to rehab. and the owners come to the new rehab center site and daddy gets bit by there dog right? or is it a different one couse that is the one I remember the owners pulling dogs apart by the feet

    Yep, that one, and he offers them a different dog. There were two dog fights in that episode.

    yea, I remember the owners, not him pulling them apart, I wish he could have made them listen to him and taken his advice, he can't take there dog without consent but man I wish he could have.

    I saw the show also and at no time did he pull the dogs apart by their hind legs...the owners did that not CM.
    Also his show is an hour long not 30 minutes.
    Many times they give you the actual time elapsed to make a dog respond.

    I remember him being in there helping. He may have not pulled the legs, but he didn't do anything productive either. I remember him being part of the problem not a helpful solution like you'd expect him to be. It's been a while since I've seen the episode, but I remember when I did, I was pretty angry that he handled it so poorly.

    In the one episode that I have seen where 2 pits really got into it, CM never tried to pull them apart. He and one of his helpers just straddled them and held them together until one let go. Now don't get me wrong, if he had a breaking stick they would have been apart much sooner, but he didn't and the dogs still came out relatively unscathed.

    The one dog needed, I believe it was, 15 stitches in her mouth. That shouldn't have been the case. A man who proclaims to be so amazing with dogs, should be able to break a dog fight up the faster and most effective way with the least amount of damage.

    If it was just so Joe Schmoe who isn't use to dogs or never experienced two dogs fighting, then I'd say, "Yeah, well, that will happen," but a man makes his living on dog behavior and all, you'd think he'd know better. That's all I am saying.

    I lost a lot of respect for Cesar in that episode.

    Now don't get me wrong, Cesar has given the breed some good press, and I am thankful for that, but at the same time, he sets up a bit of a "false" hope to those whose dog's display DA, as if it can just be trained out. Also, I highly doubt all his dogs run loose together unsupervised, and I wish he would make a point to let people know, "Don't leave your dogs alone together unsupervised."

    I agree with you CHJ, and it is possible that I never saw the eppy that you are talking about. I don't watch it very often as it is on when I am at work. I will say though, that we do employ some of his techniques at our house and it is working great. I also use a lot of my personal obedience trainers methods as well but it doesn't mean that I only use those. I think because everyone's dogs are a bit different you have to pick and choose which methods to employ. Boston responds much better to CM training techniques because he is not nearly as head strong as Jersey is. He is way more mellow and not nearly as rambunctious, but Jersey is WAY more eager to please us so they are really different. They are like my kids. I can just look at Bradley and he knows mom's pissed, but Tyler...well I have to actually lose IT before he gets it through his head. You know what I mean.

    Yeah, I have learned some things for Cesar. I think he does bring some good stuff to the table. I am not saying the man doesn't know a thing about dogs. He does seem to know a bit. I just don't agree with some of his approaches, and I don't agree with some of his theories.
