Interesting book but I don't think I could follow his methods 100%....puppies are just too darn cute! :-) I'm sure I will keep some of his theories/methods in mind and I do have a better understanding of pack dog mentality. ( )

I was already a big fan of Cesar's TV show. I guess, like so many I was really impressed with what he could do even to the wildest dogs. I have a little devil myself at home which I adore, he's not an extreme case but have his issues. The book was perfect for me. First you get a glimpse of Cesar's early life and how he got to know what he knows about dogs. Then he talks to you trying to educate and prepare you to be a better leader for your dog in order to make him happier, without ever being full of himself. It's easy to follow and it really feels like a good talk about our cuties. ( )

I believe this to be the first book written by Cesar Millan also known as the Dog Whisperer. This is not a dog training book as the man is not a dog trainer as some people mistakenly believe. Instead it covers his story from a poor kid in Mexico to the Dog Whisperer explaining some of his methodologies and philosophies when it comes to living in harmony with a dog or a pack of dogs. He also explains and expands on his core idea of exercise-discipline and affection. If you want to learn more about the man himself this is a good little book to get. ( )

If you expect tips, training formulas and solutions for specific problems you have with your dog, then this is not a book for you. The thing is that Cesar´s way of dealing with dogs is more holistic, intuitive and based on the "pack leader" view. This is a great book and an eye opener on how we should treat our dogs: as dogs and not as people. ( )

Cesar Millan, the 'dog whisperer' writes about his life and his methods. An interesting mixture of really good, professional viewpoints and banal advices, for me a bit too much emphasis on the mystical energy, energy-flow, energy channelling, etc. Apart from this mumbo-jumbo, a good book for dog owners.

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0307337979, Paperback)

Fans of the National Geographic Channel's The Dog Whisperer with Cesar Millan will be grateful for Cesar's Way, an accessible guide to help new and current dog owners better understand the needs of their beloved pets. If you are not yet a fan, try to catch a couple of episodes of the remarkable show--you will be amazed, impressed, and motivated to create a healthier, more fulfilling relationship with your dog. In Cesar's Way, Cesar explains that dogs are not complicated, and despite what various owners think--not human. They rely on three key elements in their lives: exercise, discipline, and affection (in that order). "Problem dogs" can be attributed to "problem owners," owners who don't understand and misinterpret their dog's behavior. Cesar's Way is really a training program for dog owners, with chapters devoted to understanding the "power of the pack," taking responsibility for "how we screw up our dogs," and learning how to manage aggression. Cesar's book (a must-have for new and old dog owners) moves beyond basic obedience school techniques, and teaches owners how to change unwanted behavior by better understanding their "best friends." --Daphne Durham

Cesar Millan's Top 5 Tips for Going to the Dog Park

1. Make sure your dog is spayed or neutered, has all her shots, and is in good health. Under no circumstances should you bring a sick dog to a dog park!

2. Do not use the dog park as a substitute for the walk! If you drive to the park, leave your car a block away and take your dog on a vigorous walk of at least thirty-five minutes to drain some of her energy. Never take an over-excited dog to the park.

3. While at the park, don't "punch out" on your calm-assertive leadership. Be aware of your dog at all times, and take responsibility for her behavior.

4. A calm-submissive dog will not attract another dog's aggression--but an excited dog, a weak, timid dog, or an aggressive dog can become a fight-magnet.

5. Know your dog! If your dog has poor social skills, is overly fearful or is dog aggressive, or if you have not yet established your calm-assertive leadership with your dog, find a more controlled way to introduce her to the company of other dogs, such as "play dates" with one or two other dog owners.

Learn what goes on inside your dog's mind and develop a positive, fulfilling relationship with your best friend. "Dog Whisperer" Cesar Millan is America's most sought-after dog-behavior expert, but he is not a trainer in the traditional sense--his expertise lies in his ability to comprehend dog psychology. Tracing his own journey from a clay-walled farm in Mexico to the celebrity palaces of Los Angeles, Cesar recounts how he learned what makes dogs tick. Here, he shares this wisdom. Cesar's formula for a contented and balanced dog seems impossibly simple: exercise, discipline, and affection, in that order. 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.--From publisher description.… (more)
