Though this book still contains many of Cesar's gems of wisdom I am wondering why it is called Cesar's rules as much of the book is about other {respected} dog trainers and their rules; Also gems of wisdom but not Cesar's. Misleading title.

As a first note, I'd start by saying this is a book I'll only advise to someone who has already read some of Cesar's previous works (and obviously enjoyed them).
Because it is written in a very identical way (both in the concepts and frame of mind towards dog psychology), one can read a good part of it, with the feeling that there's nothing really new (comparing to the previous ones), with the same principles, only applied to different situations.
It's not exactly so, and as soon as Cesar starts to meet other dog "trainers", a lot of "same goals" (only with different methods), start to show, to leave this very interesting idea that no method is "right" or "wrong" per se, and its the way and situation you make use of it that end up defining it.

If you're looking for a book, exclusively to learn how to teach tricks to your pup, this might not be for you. However, if you're already familiar to Cesar's way, and care to read about some different perspectives on dog training, and the involved techniques, this will surely be a pleasant read.

The book is an interesting read, but it is more about dog psychology than actual "training" of dogs. It is helpful in understanding the doggie mind, and how to communicate with them. If you are looking for a training manual this isn't the book. If you want to understand your dog's behaviour then it's worth a read.

This is a very interesting book. It is not a howtotrain book, but has lots of thoughts from different people on what training is, and it is packed full of tips. Maybe, just maybe, it would have made more sense with a section at the start on 'what is training', because one thing that's obvious on reading it is that people define training in different ways. Like you take your dog for a walk, dog walks nicely on a lead, stands at kerb on command ... is that training? For Cesar it looks like no, but for all practical purposes it is training, and is far more useful than some fancy obedience exercises learnt in some formal training classes. Cesar is starting to think hard, he's is no longer the macho lion tamer of his youth, he is now using his brain cells. Very interesting for anyone at all curious about how dogs can learn to be civilised, and to do things that interest them and their owners.

This is the best of his books, I think, because it gives real insight into not only his training methods, but those of many other trainers
I shall definitely be using this book for my
Next pair of cherished companions, and I would recommend this as an outstanding reference for anyone wanting to understand dog's and also to train them to be outstanding companions and helpers.
F as fantastic book.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I was very excited when I purchased this book as I have watched all of Cesar's shows and I am very a very fan and supporter of his philosophy and perspective on dog psycology, rehabilitation and training, so having the chance to gather all of his "magic" in just one book was a dream to come true. Unfortunately, this book is not about Cesar's rules nor training tips at all, except a small part of about 20 pages, where some basic rules on how we should generally treat our dogs are described. There is a lot of historical analysis on dog training technics, many other trainers opinions on the basic training technics and then there is a lot of rehabilitation cases mostly taken from Cesar's TV shows that unfortunately don't provide any actual knowledge on specific "Rules and your Way to Train a Well-behaved Dog". It just seems like the author is mostly gabbling for about 200 pages, getting around the subject but never actually getting to the point.
I rated it with 2 stars though because its not completely pointless to read it, this is Cesar after all and you do gain knowledge from his experience - just not on the rules subject.

The information I was looking for could have fit into one chapter of this book. There was too much waffle and input from other trainers and photos. Did not serve the purpose.
