Publisher's Summary

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 audiobook 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.

    "Made for TV Movie?"

    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!)

    "Great advice."

    The beginning of the book was a bit boring talking about his life, but then the last 3/4 of the book was very interesting. I learned a lot about my own dog that I never thought about before.

    "helpful if a little repetitive"

    This has given me the resolve to get a handle on my dogs' various issues and hope that I might succeed. Now we'll see if I can pull it off. This book is more about the dog/human power struggle and how to win it than anything like training tips. It's about getting the dog and people to have the right attitude which hopefully will be reflected in behavior.

    "Good. But almost exactly like Be the Pack Leader"
    What could Cesar Millan and Melissa Jo Peltier have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    It could have been more enjoyable if they would have made this book and "Be the Pack Leader" to have different information. I felt like I was listening to the same book twice. Honestly, I felt duped.


    What about John H. Mayer’s performance did you like?

    Love the reader's voice and tone.

    "Worth an Audible Credit"

    I enjoyed this book. Cesar has great insight into the lives of our four-legged friends, but it's a little long and his only advice is to walk your dog twice a day. If you're trying to train your dog, this isn't the book for you. But if you want to know why your dog acts the way it does, then get this book.

    "SSSSSSST!"

    This works. Interesting to get to know the man behind the muts.
    This book was a great balance between his life and technique.

    "Cesar's Way"

    Cesar Milan is any animal's best friend because he treats them as animals. This book is a wonderful starting point to learn about how to make your furry friends happy and healthy. Thanks for bringing this treasure to the audible audience!

    "Learn to understand your dog!"

    Now I know WHY my dog does what he does AND I know how to manage those bad habits. Many of those I gave him myself by MY bad behavior. This was a training for ME as well as for my dog.

    Listen and learn! I listened while walking my rescue beagle for the first few weeks I had him. He's not perfect, but I know a lot more than I did when I started.

    "Not for me"

    Two hours into this book, I was still waiting for something about dog training. The book went on and on with a lot of stories about his upbringing, celebrities he knows, coming to America illegally, his issues with machismo ... and so on. The gist of it is now he is a big celebrity himself.

    He may know something about dogs, but everything he knows could be condensed to about 15 minutes max.

    A much better choice is any thing by Patricia B. McConnell like:
    For the Love of A Dog (also on audible).

    I deleted this from my player after the first 2 hours. Yuck! So much for celebrity dog trainers!
