Both inspirational and practical, A Short Guide to a Happy Dog draws on thousands of training encounters around the world to present 98 essential lessons. Taken together, they will help owners apply the key aspects of Cesar’s celebrated philosophy to create the most fulfilling life possible with their dogs.

In these pages, Cesar delves into crucial themes that go beyond obedience-school basics to reveal the hearts and minds of our beloved pets. In short, practical takes, he explores the basics of dog psychology, instinctual behaviors, creating balance and boundaries, managing common misbehaviors, choosing the right dog for your family, and helping your dog adjust to life transitions.

Throughout the book, inspiring stories from Cesar’s case files—and from his new show, Leader of the Pack—provide moving real-world applications and surprising life lessons.

Smart, easy to use, and packed with Cesar’s remarkable insights into human and canine behavior, A Short Guide to a Happy Dog is an inspiring tool for anyone looking to live a better life with a beloved member of the family.

    "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 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.

    "Dog Manual and more "

    All dog owners and and the ones who are planning to have a dog in the future should listen this audiobook.

    Much to learn from it and many more.
    Through personal stories got proof that we already knew: dog is men's best friend.

    Also the narrator is a perfect match.

    "great read beginning to end"

    you may think you know dogs, but you don't- not like Cesar. information on dog behavior and about pack behavior.
    The last chapter tied it all together. Facinating man, very wise.

    "Just Wonderful He's An Inspiration"

    What a great and practical book, not had a puppy for 15 years so this was an interesting and thoughtful insight into my puppies head. So much information and basically teaching us that they are all pack animals and we hopefully become a responsible, strong & caring pack leader. Basic training starts young and should continue. The book also looks at Cesar's past and difficult beginnings, his own personal story warts & all and how he became "The Dog Whisperer". The narration was perfect this is an inspirational book and not just for dogs.
