I know, I’m supposed to be marketing myself more as a “dog trainer” by making more dog videos, but my cat videos get 10 to 20 times more attention… more hits means a little more money! besides, there are a few amazing dog trainers out there with plenty of tutorials. It’s not that I won’t make any more dog videos, I will, I’m working on a few ATM, but I will be making mostly cat videos. I hope you understand and don’t lose you as one of my viewers.
Both my channels, Malibu Dog Training and CatManToo have partnerships with YouTube, between them, I’m coming up on FIVE MILLION video views!!!
Here are my latest/viral cat videos,
Wanna go for a walk – Wanna Go For A Walk
Cat barely escapes jaws (over 2-million views) – Cat Barely Escapes Jaws
Cat uses then flushes toilet (1.7 million views) - Cat Uses Toilet then Flushes
Dog “related” videos I’m working on are – loose leash walking, a few behavioral tutorials and a stop motion (with dogs), that will be cool!
I really appreciate the “likes” comments, sharing and for subscribing

For the last 29 years I’ve read many books and magazines on dog training and dog behavior. One of the earlier books I read (other than dog training manuals) is “The Monks Of New Skete” It was the must read book in it’s day. If you read it today, you could still pick up some helpful advice, but because of the changes in technique and philosophies over the years, It’s not my first choice as a must read book for today’s dog owner.
I know that dog owners are just expected to know everything about their dog, but the reality is- they don’t and in many cases, not even close. As your dog’s teacher, your dog deserves for you to learn from the real Authorities in the business. A great way to do this is to read books that I and other top trainers and behaviorist recommend.
Books also make a great gift idea.
Books: LINK TO AMAZON BOOKS
The Culture Clash – Jean Donaldson
Oh Behave – Jean Donaldson
Doctor Dunbar’s Good Little Dog Book – Ian Dunbar
Dogs: A New Understanding of Canine Origin, Behavior and Evolution – Raymond Coppinger
The other end of the leash- Patricia McConnell
They are all good, but if you needed a place to start I would suggest Good little dog book- Ian Dunbar or Culture Clash AMAZON BOOKS

If you don’t recognize Dr, Ian Dunbar’s name, pretty much every dog trainer around the world would; even many dog owners have at least one of his many books. He is the driving force behind “reward/science based” dog training, using lurers and motivation to teach dogs V.S. fear or dominance. This “New way” of teaching dogs was quickly adopted by top trainers some 25+ years ago.
When I saw Dr. Ian Dunbar’s email to me, I thought why would he be contacting me? especially when I’m all the way over here in Australia?
Below I pulled out some of the highlights of his email to me:
Hi there Robert
I love your website…
I am about to embark on a thoroughly exciting dog project and would very much like your help and participation. DogStarDaily is about to launch a web-based “TV Channel” dedicated entirely to dogs. Not only is web-TV worldwide (as opposed to local and nationwide) but all the programmes are archived and therefore, never die.
I would like you to be a part of our flagship programming that comprises 26 dog trainers from all around the world. I think that the worldwide impact of this show will blast unfriendly and boring dog training back to the Middle Ages (where it belongs). I would very much like you to be a part of this programme featuring dog-friendly dog training around the world.
Basically, you would have approximately 18 minutes to present your message to dog owners worldwide plus nearly a minute to advertise your company website, services and products. Dog Star Daily is fast becoming one of the biggest (most-trafficked) doggy websites in the world. Depending on the success of your episode (# views and ratings), we may invite you to host your own 13-episode programme.
Your segment is primarily about YOU but also I would like you to showcase your country, trying to film with unique backdrops that show off the sights of your neighbourhood and the culture.
Please let me know if you would be interested in participating. If yes, please start filming right away.
Looking forward to hearing from you soon. Let’s rock.
Ultra mega woofs to you
