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.

Patrick and his brother Francis were a delightful pair of rats we got as babies and loved

very much.  Francis passed away last year so we decided to get a companion for Patrick.

We were talked into getting  a pair of brothers (or so we thought) to keep him company last

year, and 2 months later we had 3 babies making a grand total of 6.  Patrick had a new

lease on life after that and we got a few really good months with him.  He started to show

signs of slowing down before Christmas and last night it was time to join his brother.

He will be very much missed.
