Given to me by a friend. "The natural, everyday guide to understanding and correcting common dog problems."

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

Product Description: 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 his appearances 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. Cesar s formula for a contented and balanced dog seems impossibly simple: exercise, discipline, and affection, in that order. Taking readers through the basics of dog psychology and behavior, Cesar shares the inside details of some of his most fascinating cases, using them to illustrate how common behavior issues develop and, more important, how they can be corrected. Whether you re having issues with your dog or just want to make a good bond even stronger, this book will give you a deeper appreciation of how your dog sees the world, and it will help make your relationship with your beloved pet a richer and more rewarding one.

I'm taking this out of the bookbox.

I love Cesar's show and I look forward to hearing this book! I'm sure my dog will benefit from it as well :-)

Where did my journal entry about this great book go? No clue, so I'll put it here.

I really enjoyed this book. I have mixed feelings about it being abridged; I thought it read really well and contained everything I needed/wanted. However, it was so enjoyable I could have handled a little more, I think.

I loved that Cesar read it; he's such a figure head/celebrity and it would have been strange hearing these things coming from someone other than him. I also really liked the glimpses into Cesar's personal life--how he got to where he is now, what his pack is like, what his daily routine it.

I don't have my own dog, but I do live with a dog (my family's dog) and I know for sure that Simon does not see me as pack leader. This book helped me understand my role in his life better and understand how his mind works. Dogs are not fuzzy little children; they are complicated beings who need different things from us than we sometimes give them. If I came away with anything, it was that we do things a bit wrong in my household and instead of yelling when the dog doesn't do what he should, I should be calm assertive and show him/lead him to what he should be doing.

Releasing this to carlissa's audio bookbox. Enjoy!

The dog sniffs its way back to Miami... though not exactly home.

I grew up with dogs in the family though now we don't own any. I enjoyed this book a lot: from Cesar's interesting autography about coming over to American as an illegal immigrant to realize his dreams, to his no-nonsense way of training, ahem, rehabilitating dogs.

Listening to the book, I think the same idea applies to raising children... often the parents just have too much love and not enough discipline! Not to mention exercise. It's interesting how Cesar shows us dog's way of thinking. Think your dog is so eager to go for a walk? Nope, he just figures he is the alpha male and walks ahead of you.

Will put into the next audio bookbox heading my way.

Nice to see this book again! Actually, my mother asked to read it, so I'm taking it out of the box this time for her.
