I agree, but sadly those things often don't hit the requirements for animal cruelty laws, otherwise he would have been prosecuted long ago. Laws tend to only kick in if a dog is kept in a bag or shot or things like that. "Just" kicking or "just" punching them isn't enough to ding the laws, which is exceedingly frustrating.Cesar Milan's training styles are abuse. There are MANY exerts from his shows that show his kicking dogs, holding them up off the ground by their collars, and doing other forceful moves with them.
Just kicking clips.
And that is what we see in the episodes. Imagine what happens behind closed doors.
Admittedly I don't really watch his show, but I think provoking is really what he does. Instead of managing the situation so the dog succeeds, he forces the dog to fail and then corrects (harshly) for that failure.I saw that clip on youtube and I was glad to see a lot of people were angry about it.
I just watched the follow up clip and I wasn't impressed. Simon was still clearly uncomfortable with the pigs and was trying hard to avoid them. He seemed to be acting the same as he was in the original clip actually. In the original clip that I saw it wasn't until someone grabbed the pigs leg and made it squeal that he attacked it. They didn't explain that in their statement though. It seemed like they were trying to provoke Simon so that he would attack the pig.
