  1. I was honored to meet Cesar many years ago and his dog Junior. He is just the kindest person and the greatest dog trainer that ever lived. I have read his books and he had a dream and he made it come true. He really really knows dogs it’s a fee can see through their mind.

  2. My Hero, Ceser, talkes nothing but common sense, l use to do Dogy day care having up to 15 dogs loose using Cesers methods, met him at one of his shows in Birmingham, England. I am very pleased you have found happiness, you decerve it., l wish l lived in America, so l could sign up for one of your seminars, from all dogs l say Thankyou Cesar, for you guidince. Caroline Hoggarth living in England

  3. He has a wonderful disposition with people frustrated with their dogs behaviors. Gives them great training skills. I have used leash technique walking my dogs and now my dog walks with me instead of pulling and dragging me down the street. Thank you Cesar for your techniques and shows. We enjoy watching them.

  4. All of you who praise him need to read up on the abuse he uses on the dogs at his Center. His dog killed Queen Latifah’s dog. Instead of owning up to the sad situation, he had his staff lie and say the dog got hit by a car. He should have informed Queen Latifah not his staff. He should have been honest. The dog should have been muzzled. Cesar knew the dog was dangerous.
    I lost all respect and admiration for him when I started to look into his history.
