Book Review-CESAR'S WAY

By Cesar Millan
272 Pages
Inside Cover:
There are at least 68 million dogs in America, and their owners lavish billions of dollars on them every year. So why do so many pampered pets have problems? In this definitive and accessible guide, Cesar Millan-star of National Geographic Channel's hit show Dog Whisperer with Cesar Millan-reveals what dogs truly need to live a happy and fulfilled life.
From appearance's on The Oprah Winfrey Show to his roster of celebrity clients to his reality television series, Cesar Millan is America's most sought-after-dog-behavior expert. But Cesar is not a trainer in the traditional sense-his expertise lies in his unique ability to comprehend dog psychology. Tracing his own amazing journey from a clay-walled farm in Mexico to the celebrity palaces of Los Angeles, Cesar recounts how he learned what makes dogs tick. In Cesar's Way, he shares this wisdom, laying the groundwork for you to have stronger, more satisfying relationships with your canine companions.
My thoughts:
I have never seen Cesar Millan's TV Show but picked up this book on the recommendation of a couple of friends who have two very well behaved dogs-one of them is a pure breed pit bull. They are huge believers in Cesar's training methods and educating dog owners.
I have a two year old Rottweiler and recently added a toy Poodle to our family. It makes for a lot of double takes at the dog park!
Since reading Cesar's Way I have found that I have more control over my dogs and feel like I'm doing a better job of being a "Pack Leader".
I love that he is about positive training. I can apply his methods to my 100 pound Rottweiler as well as my 5 pound Poodle. Although the are very different dogs on the outside-they both are dogs. The same rules and training apply.
The most helpful things I have taken from this book are:
1. Exercise is key for a happy and healthy dog.
2. The language of energy and how it applies to my dogs is invaluable.
3. This book is as much about people psychology as it is about dog psychology.
4. I'm more confident about my ability as a dog owner.
Anyone who is thinking about adding a dog to their family or improving their relationship with their dog should check this book out. I found the information easy to read and apply. I've already checked out another book by him-Leader of the Pack. I look forward to learning more.
