    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.

    Overall

    This is a great book for the most part as long as you don't get too bogged down in the life history of Cesar's childhood and emigration to the US. Also, I'm a little skeptical of this mystical "Energy" he keeps talking about. I don't believe for a second my dogs have a sixth sense that allows them to read an "energy" aura surrounding me. Are they perceptive and sensitive to my attitude and body language? Without a doubt! But, I'm not a believer in the West Coast mysticisms regarding the "energy" I'm projecting.

    Cesar is right on track with the rest of the advice. I especially like his take on dominance not being a bad thing, but rather a state of being necessary in any healthy human/canine relationship. Living in the present is also very helpful. We could all take that to heart! As with all self-help books, I recommend the reader pick and choose what works well for them keeping in mind the human is always responsible for good leadership as stated in the book. I totally agree you can't be a pert-time leader in your pack and hope to see positive results.
    I don't watch the cable TV show so most of this was new to me. One last criticism...I believe he does not place enough value on the Skinner psychology methods. They too are essential in strengthing the human/canine bond. Despite the criticisms, this is a great book for a dog owner (not the only one, just a great one!)
