Default 'Dogs in the City'

? What is this show? It seems like The Dog Whisperer and a stupid reality show combined. Who is the trainer? anyone ever heard of Justin Silver before?

I just stumbled on this show and have watched about 5 minutes by the way.

Yeah he really does but he hasn't done much real training at all yet. Too much of the reality tv gimicks for me though.

I've never heard of him before. The ads I saw for the show introduced him as a "dog groomer." WTF?
I'm glad if he's +R though. Need more of that out in the public eye. I bet it won't last long though.

Eh... not impressed at all so far with either the poodle situation and allowing the two dogs to fight. I'm also not impressed with the leash walking method either.

Stopped watching after the poodle was attacked; don't think much of him or the poodle's owner for putting her in harm's way (she had to be aware of what was going on and surely signed a waiver).

Better than some I've seen, but not that special overall. The poodle thing made me wonder if someone underestimated the dog (either the trainer, or the dog's owner) because they were doing way smaller steps prior and then *bam* dog on dog contact.

Looks like he's going to use different names when talking about corrections LOL. Leash cues = leash corrections. :P I did like martingales instead of choke or prong, though the aggressive dog suddenly was wearing a choke I noticed.

I caught it from the end of the segment with the Berner to the end of the show. I told my husband I was pleasantly surprised (remember, I really only saw the segment with the Bulldog). I liked how he switched to a martingale from the harness and, especially how he told the woman to throw the flexi out since she would never be using it again (first thing I yelled at the TV when she complained about how the dog walked was to get rid of the d*mn Flexi). Had to laugh at the "leash cues", tho. They sure looked like small leash pops to me. Honestly, I'm not sure it's something I'd watch on a regular basis, tho.
