'I rehabilitate dogs. I train people.' - Cesar Millan.

In Cesar's Way, Cesar Millan - US dog expert and star of National Geographic Channel's hit show Dog Whisperer with Cesar Millan - helps you see the world through the eyes of your dog so you can finally eliminate problem behaviours. You'll learn:

· What your dog really needs may not be what you're giving him
· Why a dog's natural pack instincts are the key to your happy relationship
· How to relate to your dog on a canine level
· There are no 'problem breeds', just problem owners
· Why every dog needs a job
· How to choose a dog who's right for you and your family
· And much more!

Filled with fascinating anecdotes about Cesar's long-term clients, and including forewords by the president of the International Association of Canine Professionals and Jada Pinkett Smith, this is the only book you'll need to forge a new, more rewarding connection with your four-legged companion.

Not sure why it's taken me so long to finish this book. It's not a long book, it reads pretty easily, and (for the most part) I'm on board with what Millan has to say. It may be that a part of me knows that I'm not following all his advice when it comes to our dog. Yes, Wiener Schnitzel the dachshund thinks, I'm pretty sure, that he's the pack leader in our household.

One of the few things that bugs me is that Millan doesn't always give concrete instruction on how to do some of the things he recommends. For instance, he says you should always enter or leave the house before your dog. Ok, but *how* do you do that? How do you get through the open door, then hold it open while the dog comes through, all while holding the leash?

For the most part, though, I did find plenty of explanations as to why my dog does some of the things he does, and suggestions on how to work on some of those issues.

Five Stars! As a lifetime dog owner and pack leader of three dogs, this book was an extraordinary reminder of our role to having more balanced dogs. I have appreciated the growth from dog trainers and the dog psychology revealed in this book has only improved my relationship with my dogs. This is not a "how-to" book. There are tons of training books. This book is a necessary base for any subsequent training. Keep running and walking those dogs and being a leader 100% of the time!

His methods use punishment and other tactics that will scare and hurt dogs. That certainly does not help them be happy. To really help your dog be happy and well behaved, look for books and videos by trainers like Karen Pryor,
Patricia McConnell, Jean Donaldson,
Kathy Sdao (From Tacoma!), Jane Killion. Here is a great website with free positive videos. http://dogmantics.com/free-video-list/

Though I have never own a dog, I found this book to be quite educational on the subject of a dog's mind and nature. I have seen the TV shows and, I find it remarkable what Cesar can do for problem dogs with only his years of hands-on experience to guide him.

This guy needs to get with the times. People are crazy over this man and shouldn't be.

Good reminder of some basics. Exercise first, then discipline, then affection.
Easy read, easy to understand, and good advice that is easy to apply.

Interesting approach to dealing with dogs, but more practical information is required.
