Damn prong collars.
I commented on this on another forum. Whole thing sounds off to me. $25,000 in vet bills for some bruises and damage to the esophagus? What vet was this guy using?

Hmmmm. Poor Cesar has another lawsuit filed against him by his old publicist...she was seeking 5 million. Sounds to me like people after his money?

I also replied to this on another forum. It sounds VERY suspect to me. Mainly, why would you put a dog on a treadmill to work it through fear issues? That makes no sense to me at all.

There was no mention of prong collars, Woody. The collar used was a choke collar, according to the article.

You're right. I posted before I read closely.

I dunno...treadmills? Southcentral LA? Choke collars? Sounds pretty game-y to me, if you catch my drift...maybe he has a side business.

I'm totally kidding, trying to see if I can get Connie upset this morning. :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

Something else I caught is that the article says "workers" at the dog center, not Millan himself. So why is MIllan being sued instead of the people who actually committed the alledged abuse and injuring of said dog? I suppose it could be a condition of wokring at the dog center...but still. It'll be interesting to follow this case and see any evidence and what the verdict is. At any rate it's going to hurt Millan's business a bit...

He has the money, and would pay to make this go away.

ALL RIGHT, I'm back! :lol: :lol: :lol:

He has suits against him and Nat'l Geo too, trying to get his "cruel" training methods off the air. These are by a PETA-type group, but I think, if I recall correctly, it's not PETA.

Cesar Millan Inc. --- I'd say that's probably the defendant. And it is a closely-held corporation (or was last time I looked it up), so it's really him.

And his facility is right smack in the middle of where many of his pack comes from, too. (Where else could it be.....where he wouldn't run into NIMBYs?) Hence the drive in vans up into the mountains every day for a run-and-walk-and-rest period with him, an assistant, and the pack, from dawn until mid-morning, and hence the treadmills and pools at the facility.

But you've all seen this, probably, on TV.
