The dogie whisperer is a joke. He is an OK trainer but his knowledge is limited to certain situations.
He has no knowledge of working dogs and how they react or are trained in working situations. As long as he is in central park talking to some over zealous PETA pet Nazi who baby talks and wipes their pits butt he is fine. Put him in the real world with military working dogs, coon hound, bear hounds, or cat hounds on the run and this guy will look like th idiot he is. A good working border collie would demonstrate their superior intelligence. I know several dogs who are smarter about people than he is about dogs.
I've known LOTS of dogs - that are more intelligent, self sufficient, hard working, reliable, trustworthy and capable of surviving by their own wits --- than most of the folks here in Kalifornicate -- and almost every politician and lawyer.
Also - when I heard that Islamists regard dogs as "unclean" and unwelcome in their homes ---- that sealed the deal as their's being a lunatic and backward cult...

That's a little harsh. Those aren't the real world, those are specialties. I'd argue that the real world is the one he does his show in, where most pets are spoiled and most owners don't know how to fix it. While I'm skeptical that some of those dogs and owners are really fixed when he leaves, I certainly am impressed that he himself is a Dog God. I've known one other Dog God in real life, and he trained police dogs. Some people just have a way.
He himself says he doesn't train dogs. He trains idiot owners so they can train their dogs. He simply shows them how to be boss, and how to react in the way a dog will understand. This is not a quick fix. The only way the dogs he sees will continue behaving is if their owners continue consistent training.

Ha, I've said much the same.
