Book Description

After more than 9 seasons as TV’s Dog Whisperer, Cesar Millan has a new mission: to use his unique insights about dog psychology to create stronger, happier relationships between humans and their canine companions.

Now in paperback, this inspirational and practical guide draws on thousands of training encounters around the world to present 98 essential lessons. Taken together, they will help dog owners 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
• Helping your dog adjust to life transitions

Throughout the book, inspiring stories from Cesar’s case files -- and from his TV 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars I can't but recommend this book 29 Aug. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Well, as a Cesar Millan's fan, I can't but recommend this book. Cesar's tips work. I have always used them with my dogs and the results are astonishing ... these tips not only help you having a more balanced dog, but will give you the added benefit of creating a relation with your dog based on trust, respect (for each other), obedience (of the rules set to protect your dog's life) and healthy friendship. The important thing to note about "Cesar' way" is that, contrary to his opponents, he always maintains that "what works for your dog is good for your dog", and has never diminished other dog behaviourists / trainers. This alone shows his superiority, in my opinion. His methods do work, but you will never hear him say that his methods are the only one that work ...
Cesar is great, both from the dog behaviourist point of view and the human one.
It is true that if you have already read other books from him a lot of the concepts are repeated. But I find that, obvious as these concepts seem, they are difficult to put in practice "24/7", so it is helpful to "refresh them" and seldom people read a book a second time! For example, I have watchedat the "dog Whisperer" episodes many times. Each time I notice something different: the dog attitude, Cesar's "energy", how the dog's enery changes, how Cesar can detect a dog's change in behaviour, avoiding an attack on another dog. Behind a simple "Tschh" there is a lot of work, observation. Timing is critical. Learning how to do these corrections in the right way is the key to understanding Cesar's way and to see his tips work.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great if you don't have his other books 6 Mar. 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
If you do not have any of his books this is a five star buy. If, like me and many others, you already have a few, then there is not much new here. Even so it has some useful reminders.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent! 25 Mar. 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Well written little book. Nicely condensed but leaving nothing out that is needed. Highly recommended to all who do not want to read hundreds of pages. If this does not help you to understand your dogs behaviour, nothing will. A+++

For a first time owner of a dog this is a must read. In fact read this before you get the dog! Concise, easy to follow and in effect teaches the owner to live with the dog not the other way around,k all of which makes for a happy partnership. I highly recommend it.
