    "OK"

    I believe Cesar Milan is a great dog trainer. Even though his show is heavily edited to show 'quick' results, his methods are solid. I was hoping for more from this book but was somewhat disappointed. Not all of us have a well-trained dog in our pack to help with raising a new pup/dog.

    Not narrated by him and I would have preferred that.

    "Wonderful book if you are getting a new puppy!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of How to Raise the Perfect Dog to be better than the print version?

    I love to be able to listen in the car on the way to work.


    What does John H. Mayer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He did a very good job! Loved the voices he used talking from the dog's perspective.


    Any additional comments?

    I have listened to this book four times, and each time I learn something new!

    "Enjoyable and informative"

    Cesar covers all the needed new puppy information in a more interesting format than some of the other puppy care books. He adopted four puppies with a variety of needs and backgrounds. As he tells about the individual dogs you learn the right way through each phase of puppy care. I found it easy and entertaining listening, rather than lists and dry information.

    "Low reader"

    I did like the book, however the reader was a little slow for my tastes. (I speed him up)

    "Definitely not Cesar Millan"

    This is a good book capturing stories and techniques by Cesar Millan HOWEVER it is NOT narrated by him as advertised. The narrator is good but sounds like Casey Kasem. Also the "with Melissa Jo Peltier", his tv producer, as a co-author is an understatement. This book is more of a Dog-Whisperer-branded product. Despite the misleading cover the content is good and useful for dog owners.

    "NOT NARRATED BY CESAR AS ADVERTISED"

    I prefer narration by Cesar. Still it's a wonderful book.
