This is something I have wanted to say for a long time but couldn’t figure out how. All of this debate of The Dog Whisperer has always struck me as something of a futile exercise. It isn’t even a show about dog training. It is Reality TV at its finest. The producers at National Geographic have managed to keep the show at the top of their ratings and on the air for 9 seasons. They didn’t do it by teaching people how to be good dog trainers. They did it by keeping people entertained.
A transcript of the main text of The Dog Whisperer Is No Longer Relevant is available at the Life As A Human online magazine website. You can visit Life as a Human to find this and other articles.
