It's me or the dog

Has anyone ever seen this show? I watched it for the first time last night! This gal is like Ceasar Milan! The dogs are completely out of control. I am lucky, I really don't have any problems with my 3 guys. The worst thing is they jump up and scratch to greet you! LOL! I am working on stopping that. Seems if you baby a lot of dogs, they get way out of control. I am guilty of doing that, but it has not effected my dogs they still know there place and are not destructive, unless you're counting trash and toilet paper! Haha.

If you have not seen this show, it's worth it. I actually got a tip that will help me with the jumping up.

It's on animal planet. I like her too. Her techniques are good, not quite so harsh as Ceasar's. Her books are a pretty good read too.

Yes, Linda. I've watched a couple of episodes and I like her a lot better than Cesar, but I haven't watched Cesar enough to explain exactly the differences between them. She is good and intuitive.

She is the spin off of Cesar.....it is an ok show---but I think Cesar is better.He seems to have trained her!

I did not see the show but I just clicked on the link that was posted .. Thank you for that .
Some of the things she says are the same as the woman I found in the desert . She stressed ignoring them as well . Leah never raises her voice to the dogs she is literally like Monty Roberts the horse whisperer and she is amazing . The boys really seemed to respect her and knew when she was there it was time to behave ..
I have not seen Victoria on her show but I have watched a lot of Cesar and after a while he got repetitive and a little tiresome . Wow that sounds dumb as consisitency is the key .. I watched him for a full week and I did enjoy all the different doggie behaviours and problems ..
He can be very engaging and I think he is great for dogs who are are running out of options but I think he likes this alpha role ..
Somehow I cannot envision any of our sweet little Havanese having to go to boot camp !! He did make some positive suggestions such as the exercise but he never addresses diet very much and I think this is important as well .
I have never seen him work with puppies . Has anyone else ever seen him in that role .. Just curious ..
I am going to watch this woman as I like her philosphy . I know Cosmo does not do well when you get too strict and assertive . You have to be a gentle leader - he is very sensitive and insecure .. This is a point this woman brought up on her web site .
Thank you for enlightening me .

Cesar is big on exercise and wearing the dog out. This woman did not do any of that. She just addressed the problem. I really liked her.
