Misguided and Uneducated

Robert Cabral has no proper education on how to deal with dogs or animals in general. His methods go against what science and experts (aka actual Animal Behaviorists who have Masters and PhDs in animal behavior) tell us is the effective and humane way to treat our pets.
He advocates against positive reinforcement training and uses aversive and painful tools like prong collars. Please look for podcast from trainers who can teach methods that make your dogs have wonderful lives without force or pain.

One of my fav podcasts

I absolutely love Robert’s podcast, his knowledge experience and especially his no BS approach is great. I wait with anticipation for every episode to drop. He also really helped changed my views on lots of things so thank you for that!
