TED talk: Ian Dunbar on dog-friendly dog training

I've always thought of Ian Dunbar as the anti Dog whisper. Both Ian Dunbar and Cesar Millan are iconic figures in the pet dog training arena, neither of their school of dog training philosophy I pay much attention to...till now. Cesar Millan's actions on TV have been appalling. More and more I see pet owners imitating his outdated training methods to mold what I could only assume to be a stressful relationship between the dog and owner. Pet dogs everywhere would be happier with less dominance theory and more lure-reward theory.
