“I rehabilitate dogs. I train people.” —Cesar Millan
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.
Learn what goes on inside your dog's mind and develop a positive, fulfilling relationship with your best friend
In Cesar's Way, Cesar Millan—nationally recognized 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 behaviors. 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
• The difference between discipline and punishment
• And much more!
Filled with fascinating anecdotes about Cesar's longtime 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.

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.

Tufts University told the Discovery Channel that running CM’s show ‘sets back dog training 20 years.’ (In this week’s NYer)
Find it hard to believe dogs respect humans as part of their pack. He just seems a bit…tough.

…and the cat would go up to the dog and try to like swat at it. It was very cute. His name was Shane and I would rub his belly. He ma boy!!! That’s what I always used to say to him. I would walk him at North Park at the lake. (5 miles) He enjoyed that. I’m sounding like he’s dead, but he isn’t. I just don’t write to good I guess. Anyways, a good book this Cesars way. I just picked it up at a book store (Barnes and Noble) on my way back from a hair cut. (Side note: Dear Amazon, I hope I don’t offend by using the name of the other book store. Apologies extended if I did) So getting back to this Cesar book. I bought it cuz the book seller recommended it to me. I’m anxious to read it soon. thank you so much and don’t forget, keep the rubber side down and I’ll see you at Sturgis. Carry on.

I noticed a reviewer who mentioned that maybe they’ll apply “Cesar’s Way” to their children – “exercise, discipline, affection, in that order.” Rather than using the devices of a dog trainer, I’d recommend “Unconditional Parenting” by Alfie Kohn. He cites the research that shows the damage caused by behavioral methods of child-rearing. I don’t know if there can be “unconditional dog-raising,” but I wonder sometimes why/how pet ownership has become such a common practice (is it another variety of successful marketing, like diamonds). I mean, it’s nice that people find companionship and all of that with their dogs. I’ve enjoyed that sort of thing; but increasingly, I wonder if maybe all the time and money and attention we put into these animals wouldn’t be better spent on, say, working on protecting/restoring the environment. We spend more on dog food than we do on food aid to Africa.
Sometimes I wonder if our pet ownership isn’t a giant distraction from reality that allows us to avoid the collective dump our society is taking on the carpet of the global living room.
There’s a slew of pet books available, but I think we need a different sort of pet book, one that takes a critical look at pet ownership and its ramifications. Again, I think pet ownership can be great, but there can also be a dark side to it. And I’m glad “Cesar’s Way” works for some people, but I hope they put affection above discipline when they’re raising their kids.
I’d also recommend “Mothering” magazine for advice on how to raise healthy two- or four-legged creatures.

I just bought Cesars book. In the beginning it lost credibility with me because he goes running with 35 dogs unleashed. This is against the law for one. I really enjoyed the biography part of the book. I dont agree with his pack leader theory. Guess what dogs know we are not dogs. There were some good training tips. All in all the book was ok. Didnt feel I wasted my money. I think people expect a lot out of there dogs. They are animals come on. I did agree with him about the exercise part. Exercise for any living thing will make them much happier and healthier. I recommend Dog Dont Lie About Love instead.
