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.

An Audible for Dogs Pick: Make your dog's day. Cesar Millan shares how audiobooks can make dogs happier and calmer. Learn more.

    "5% useful dog training info. 95% filler"
    What disappointed you about Cesar's Way?

    This book is extremely redundant. Practice calm, assertive demeanor as pack leader, and follow the 1. exercise 2. discipline 3. affection plan. There, I've basically saved you from having to read the book. This dictum is repeated ad nauseum without any elaboration on how to actually implement behavior changes.


    What was most disappointing about Cesar Millan and Melissa Jo Peltier ’s story?

    I didn't get this book in order to hear Cesar's life story or anecdotes about dogs that bear no resemblance to mine. I wanted a book about how to correct some of my dog's issues, not a biography.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    The narrative was fine. A little slow, but that suited the redundancy of the text.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Irritation. I listened to this book in the car for a month and kept thinking that I would gain some practical, useful information in the next chapter. It never came.


    Any additional comments?

    This book is like a student who was given an assignment to write a research paper and had a one-page argument, then remembered that the paper had to be 50 pages, so he repeated a bunch of garbage just to make it longer, but the garbage contributed NOTHING to the argument, but instead obliterated its clarity beyond recognition.

    "Excellent but falls a smidge short"
    Any additional comments?

    This book is an excellent source for both a high-level summary of Cesar Milan's methods and a biography of his life leading up to his show becoming the mega-hit it became.

    The first half (yes HALF) of the book is basically a biography. It's fascinating, but I mention it here in this way because I think for a book I was expecting to be entirely about Milan's dog training / psychology / behavior methodology, dedicated 50% of the book to Cesar's bio seems a little excessive. Don't get me wrong, he has had an incredible journey, but I'd rather have read that in a separate biography book and have gotten a lot more advice about working with dogs in this book with the real estate that got allotted to the bio.

    The only other major complaint I have is that there are many concepts that stop just short of you being able to actually put them to use. For example, there is a section on barking. Cesar's rule is that you can allow as much or as little barking as you want. For him, he allows one bark. Just one. And that's it. You can do the same. And then the book moves on. "Wait, what? How? How do I do that?" The book never explains how to actually get your dog to only bark once, or not at all. It just says you can decide and then moves on without giving you the actionable information you need to use it.

    Despite this two issues (too much bio, occasional lack of follow-through), the book is quite good and really helpful. I know a lot of folks dislike Cesar and disagree with his methods and style, but I don't. I think he genuinely loves dogs and has developed a way to interact with them that works. His "SHHH!" command alone has been worth it for me. It has given me and my dog a reliable way to effectively communicate when he's doing something I don't want him to do. He knows right away what I mean when I "SHHH!" him.

    Overall, there is a lot of good stuff in this book, but it's not perfect.

    "A great primer on dog psychology"

    Cesar Millan guides you on a journey of development, from young aspiring Hollywood dog trainer to middle-aged master of dog psychology. Along the way, we ourselves learn. We learn what our dogs need to be balanced and fulfilled. We learn how and when to give affection and why it matters. We learn how to "master the walk." We learn how to be better pack leaders. That's good for both us and our dogs.

    "Good Book"

    I enjoyed this book and the story behind it. It made me think about the dogs I've owned and how I've interacted with them. This is good, even if you don't own a dog but are interested in dog social behavior.

    "Very helpful"

    Loved it so much I have shared it with my kids. I've been talking about what I learned and finding opportunities where I can apply these rules for leadership.
    The voice behind this book is very easy to listen, very well narrated.
