“I have visited Cesar Millan’s Dog Psychology Center
I have visited the dog psychology center three times. Not because my dogs needed help, but rather to adopt Popeye (the one eyed pitbull). Most of the dogs in his pack are either up for adoption (rescue dogs) or client’s dogs.
Regarding the chain link fence: No, the dogs are not separated from each other. Some dogs are separated when a client’s unstable dog comes for rehabilitation. Otherwise, all the dogs are allowed to co-mingle. The chain link fences also keep the dogs out of certain areas (like the pool) when Cesar doesn’t want the dogs in that area.
Regarding the “Energy”, you are correct. Its the way you carry yourself. He explained this to us while he taught my wife how to walk a pitbull and a rottweiler while pushing a stroller. Head up, shoulders back, and walk with a purpose. Its not magic.
Regarding the location: its in South LA. Very Very close to South Central (in fact it is just off of South Central Ave between Florance and Avalon). The property is in an industrial area. The street he is on resembles an alley. So as far as cost, I don’t think he paid alot for it. It is a pretty “bad area, but like you said, anyone would feel pretty safe with 40 – 50 pitbulls and rottweilers. And you are right about not being able to get rid of dog aggression. Popeye was raised to fight. That is how he lost his eye. He has quite a few scars as well. He loves people and other calm big dogs, but he hates cats and little dogs. I can get him to ignore and tolerate, but not like.
