Ever thought about using dog training techniques to discipline your children? Presenter and comedian John Gavin certainly has and in this programme you can hear him try out these techniques on his brood.

He's written a few words telling us how he got on:

John Gavin

When you become a parent your ears can start bleeding from the amount of advice offered by all and sundry. So when I heard that the techniques of renowned dog behaviourist Cesar Millan, a.k.a. The Dog Whisperer, was gaining a cult following in the States amongst parents who were starting to use his dog taming techniques on their kids, with success, I thought I'd give it a go.

With three young girls, I am keen to avoid more of those "look Dad, this bra makes funny earmuff" moments in shops. Unconventional as it is, can Cesar make me a better dad?

I've subjected my parenting to dog behaviourist analysis, consulted dog and child experts, and had a go being Leader of the Pack. Tune in on Wednesday to find out if I am now king of the kennel or in the doghouse.
