I heard something about a lawsuit against that guy. (Allegedly) A dog owner dropped his dog off with the guy, and was later called and told his dog was now at the vet. When he arrived at the vet, the dog was bleeding from the nose, and (I believe) the vet said it almost look like he'd been strangled or drug by his collar. The Dog Whisperer said that he put the dog on a treadmill "to wear him out"...
I have seen him do the tread mill thing on one of the shows (I have only seen a couple, while it is entertaining to see stupid people be taught how to care for a dog, it is not really that entertaining).
I know nothing about the situation, nor do I feel any real desire to defend him….but to be fair, the guy trains thousands of dogs. During the show if he has to take a dog to his training facility he always has over 50 damn dogs it seems. I am sure occasionally a dog gets injured, but I doubt it is ever own purpose. I mean they are just like little children, you can not explain why something is bad or good for them and sometimes it takes tuff love. And, to be prejudices the guy is a Hollywood producer, no doubt he is a girly man and over reacted. Sometimes the best way to teach a child not to play around the stove is to let him burn him selves.
Either way, everything I have ever seen him do in the show was pretty much teach people common sense and the most fundamental things about dogs.
And if 1 out only one out of 1,000 out of control dogs gets a small injury, he is probably doing a damn good job then.
