Dealing with Aggressive Dog Biting Problems: Cesar Millan (Video)
Cesar is an expert and I admire his dedication and passion for dogs and their training/rehab. However, I do think he let his guard down a little too soon, and reaching over the dogs head to touch it is asking for trouble with an aggressive dog.
I would not recommend raising your hand over an aggressive dogs head to pat it. In fact, I would avoid patting an aggressive dog at all.
Usually a pet with aggressive dog biting problems will not like to be touched by a stranger…especially on the head.
Please let me know what you think as I look forward to your responses.
