EPiSODE iNFO On the rough streets of East Los Angeles, a college football coach has recruited Cesar to help tackle a major problem. Coach Steven is concerned that the future of one of his star football players, Steve, is at risk from his aggressive Rottweiler, Shadow. Shadow has attacked two dogs in the neighborhood and Coach Steven is afraid that if the dog attacks again, Steve could be held responsible. Cesar jumps in and shows Steve how to keep the dog out of an excited state and how to safely socialize Shadow around other dogs.
Cesar then meets up with Eric, who wants help for his brother Kevin’s Doberman Pinscher, Bowerman. Kevin and his girlfriend Lily’s active lifestyle is being torn apart by the needy, aggressive dog that attacks anything and everything on wheels. Can Cesar help Kevin and Lily control Bowerman so they can go for bicycle rides again?

A Message from Cesar

In this episode, I travel to East LA to help Steve, a college football player, whose coach has told me about Steve’s problems controlling his Rottweiler Shadow. The situation could actually sideline his sports career because Shadow has already attacked a couple of dogs, and one more time could lead to criminal charges.
East LA can be a rough neighborhood, and Steve’s family originally got Shadow for home protection. The dog excels at that job, but his aggression carries over into everyday life. Watch as I teach Steve how to be a calm, assertive Pack Leader, and enlist an unusual assistant to do the job.

Next up, Eric has blown the whistle on his brother Kevin and his Doberman pinscher, Bowerman. The dog is very aggressive toward anything on wheels, and has attacked everyone in the family whenever they’ve tried to ride a bicycle around him. My challenge here is to teach Kevin and his girlfriend Lily how to prevent the problem before it starts, and timing is everything. But will I be able to train the humans and rehabilitate this dog in time?


Cesar 911 Episode 4 Q&A



Q:  In this episode, you demonstrated how changing over from a cable and prong collar to a simple rope lead immediately reduced a dog’s aggression. Can you elaborate on why this works?

A:  A major cause of problems people have when walking their dogs comes from too much tension on the leash, especially for large, powerful breeds. The leash isn’t just a physical connection between the dog and the human. It’s a psychological connection, and the energy state of the human travels right down that leash to the dog. Dogs have a natural reaction to being pulled backwards by their neck. They pull forward. This is how they get working dogs to pull things like sleds and carts, but it’s not what you want when you’re just trying to go for a walk.

Ideally, the leash should be slack and the dog should be next to or just behind you. When I tell people this, I often get the same response: “I can’t do that because my dog starts pulling immediately and I have to pull back.”

That’s where they make the mistake — the dog pulls on the leash, the human pulls back, and the dog pulls harder. When a dog pulls on the leash, the key is to not pull back and not move forward. Stop walking and relax. If the dog stops moving but doesn’t feel tension on the leash, it will relax and this will help bring its focus back to you. This is also important to remember when making corrections with the lead — always pull to the side or up, and never back.
