Summary: Cesar Millan—nationally recognized dog expert—helps you see the world through the eyes of your dog so you can finally eliminate problem behaviors. 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. He lays 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. He takes readers through the basics of dog psychology and behavior. Cesar shares the inside details of some of his most fascinating cases. He uses them to illustrate how common behavior issues develop and, more important, how they can be corrected. 

Cesar’s Way

Cesar Millan was the star of the National Geographic Channel show The Dog Whisperer. He still offers training services and shares tips on social media and his website. I used to watch his show. I remember reading a different book of his although it must have been during a time when I didn’t review every book on this blog.

As expected, Cesar’s Way was an amazing resource. It’s perfect if you are thinking of getting a dog or you already have one that you are having minor issues with. Cesar does talk about more serious problems but you won’t be able to fix those with a book. The book could come in handy to help you determine the seriousness of your problem though.

This book is not about teaching your dog to sit or stay. This is about treating your household like a pack so your dog will know his place. This is about dominance and submission in the dog’s world. It means something different than how people tend to think of the words.

Highly recommended for dog owners.
