    "Great read for the dog enthusiast."

    I just love reading Cesar Millans books. I can see how some material may be deemed controversial but when put in context of the big picture and a true understanding that what he believes is in the best interest of the dog - it makes perfect sense. Can see changes already in our dog and his books are making an immense difference in the lives of our family and that of our new puppy.

    "Good, But Not What I Expected Based On The Title"

    I liked this book, although it wasn't what I expected based on the title. It is part dog psychology, part dog training suggestions, part memoir, and (a very small) part marketing for his new show.

    I think that this book would be useful for someone new to owning a dog or someone with specific dog behavior issues. I was looking for more general information as to training for specific commands, leash walking, etc. While some of this was covered, I would have liked more detail as to the nuts and bolts of how to do it rather than the theory.

    While I may not agree with his approach on everything, I did get a few tidbits out of the book. I never watched his show before, so I didn't know much about him, so the glimpse into his personal life was also interesting to me. The narration was solid.

    "Great info BUT!"
    If you could sum up Cesar Millan's Short Guide to a Happy Dog in three words, what would they be?

    Doggone dog on ! Cesar Millan has captured the hearts and minds of dog owners throughout the world. His charismatic charm and dog smarts has proven to be a force to be reckoned with. Heart felt comments of a personal level has to make you a believer by the end of this audio book. The narration was great though there were several stops and shudders in the flow of the speaker electronically speaking. Something must have gone wrong during the recording. Great info on dogs and on Millans personal life.
