What is a Dog Whisperer – Pet tip 215

These days you hear a lot about the term ‘dog whisperer’ and most people associate the term with one particular dog trainer, Cesar Milan. Many people think that he created the term when in fact this is false. The term dog whisperer is actually a term borrowed from horse training, where certain trainers or horse whisperers seemed to be able to get horses to calm down and accept training or accept a rider on their backs. Their methods were often ‘quiet’ (as opposed to more traditional punitive techniques) to an observer as these trainers seemed to get results from quiet whispers. These days though, the term has been diluted and many people use the term loosely.

Max was a sweet, playful, affectionate dog that we had for six weeks. He loved playing with our other dog Soda and our cats Harley and Davidson, and the kids. We got Max when he was a year old, and enjoyed every minute with him. Tragically one day, he bit our daughter, she required stitches.  Unsure why, thinking he may have gotten hurt and was very loving after, (our daughter wanted him to stay), we gave him a second chance, the next morning he nipped at our son and the decision was made to put him to sleep. We miss him.
