Not exactly in those words, that's what Ceaser told them (except for any diet recs). I think they are alot better after he got through with them!I honestly didn't like the movie at all. I mean really could the people be any worse dog owners? Any less responsible?? Their "attempts" at training were so half-hearted... you coulda left the dog with me for a week and I (who by the way am not any expert!) would have found proper ways to train the dog... and put it on a raw diet where it would've never gotten sick and died as early as it did. =P That's right darnit... just because you're crazy emotional doesn't mean you're a good dog parent.
