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.
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.
I have been a dog groomer for thirty years, I've also raised and trained Wolf hybrids, worked as a vet tech and managed a boarding kennel. Every day at work I handle all different breeds. Since I've started studying what Cesar believes I have had the best success in handling problem dogs, and I am more successful with all of them. Even the 7 month old Czech (shepherd)import that I groomed yesterday. I have also groomed some working police dogs and Cesar's methods make that job a lot easier. I agree with you that he does great in pet situations but my experience shows his methods work well with all the dogs I see. Border Collies are very intelligent but they are also often complete basket cases when being groomed. If your dog doesn't behave for me, then I don't view it as "trained" thats when the psychology comes into play.

I don't know what world you live in but in the real world, that does not include cities, dogs are working companions. A good part of the year I go about my work with a good horse under my butt, (something else I train myself), and a couple good dogs following me up. In the summer and fall, I spend most of my time with 6 or 8 pack-mules behind my saddle horse somewhere above 7,000'. I only work inside when it's too cold, wet, or the snow is too deep in the high country. Dogs are pets, but they are most defiantly tools as well. Most people I live around have watchdogs and most everyone around here has some kind of working dog or hunting dog. Most all of them earn their keep.
Ankle biters make good eagle food and don't last too long out and about when things are natural. I have another bunch of new pups out in my kennels. I will obedience train them and then get them started on sheep and cattle and put them on the Internet and in the paper. Those pups will be a good part of my income in Oct and Nov. We have a big working dog sale just up the road every spring. The top working Border Collie sold for $23,000 last Friday night. I sure wish he had been one of mine!!!!! I'd bet someone woke up with one heck of a hangover and one very thin checkbook on Sat morning.
