Seriously, this guy is amazing. I've been watching some of his DVDs (videos here) and he's fucking incredible. The way he communicates with dogs is only part of his mystique. He's has a calming effect not only on animals but on their owners, as well. He shifts them back into the moment and models fearlessness for both owner and dog. In essence, he's a source of security which can be very contagious.
I started using his techniques on my friend's chihuahua who I dog-sat for this weekend. The dog is a completely different dog right now, doesn't bark, doesn't bite, very calm, and still playful which is important.
Then I thought -- shit, why not use the dog whisperer's techniques during meditation? When your mind wanders, just yank it back assertively but gently. Other elements of Ceasar's technique also have application: calm assertive energy, letting go of the past, forgiving yourself, imagining a positive outcome, etc. Your mind becomes the dog and the calm assertive owner at the same time.
Anyone here watch the Dog Whisperer? Thoughts? Do you use the Dog Whisperer's techniques anywhere else? Politics? Negotiations? Romance? Overcoming fear?
