Look, whatever you think of Cesar Millan and his methods, comparing nudging and leash-training to actual abuse – especially child abuse* – is utterly ridiculous.

If you have any story suggestions, feel free to leave them in the comments or send them in.

* I fully consider corporeal punishment to be child abuse. As I’ve said: If you cannot get your child to listen without hitting them, you’re a failure as a parent.

I won’t link to what brought this up, as it comes from a very respected friend and I don’t wish to burn any bridges. But it just had to be said.

(PS – My judgment is based on having watched Millan’s show, The Dog Whisperer, for years.)
