Top Dog Behavior Expert
Described by Dog Whisperer Cesar Millan as "First-class" and "Masterful" in Cesar's Recruit Asia Season 2, National Geographic Channel
Lestre Zapanta is called by many as "THE Pinoy Dog Whisperer". He is a dog behavior expert with 15 years of experience analyzing canine behavior. He has observed stray dogs in the province where he grew up and concludes that they're more sound, stable, and secure than most pampered house dogs, who are caged all day long by the four walls of their homes. He believes that the lack exercise and socialization is why pets develop bad behaviors.
An expert on reading canine signals and behaviors, he says, "the good thing about studying canine body language is that you become aware of the meaning of every slight change in your dog's behavior. Most people think that the only indication that a dog will bite is if it barks or growl. This is a huge misconception. There are, in fact, other predictive gestures that may occur prior to a bite and they always go unnoticed by an untrained eye. Furthermore, the main problem in human-dog relationships is the language barrier. Before dog owners can hope for obedience, they should understand first what is going through the mind of the dog."
His methods are different from the ones used in traditional sit-and-stay type of training. That's why a lot of people seek his help because they know his training sessions are what they really need to change their dog's bad behaviors.
