A MUST read for every dog owner!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Cesar's Way: The Natural, Everyday Guide to Understanding and Correcting Common Dog Problems (Hardcover)
In my opinion this (or any of Cesar Millans books) is the only book a dog owner needs as an education to having a rewarding and positive relationship with the dog/s in the their lives and it should be compulsory reading for anyone thinking of owning a dog, and especially all those already in a relationship with man's best friend.
Using case studies, his professional experiences as well as drawing on his own personal life experiences canine and human, Ceasar examines a dogs basic psychological needs in an interesting and informative way, offering simple but effective instructions and advice as to how 'we' can best accommodate those needs so that the whole 'pack' - the canine and human family - is functioning as a happy, healthy, balanced whole as a direct result of calm assertive leadership by the pack-leader...the pack-leader being YOU the person reading the book! It's a new way of thinking. To quote Cesar himself 'it's not dog training - it's people training!' and having read through his philosophy I wholeheartedly agree and can honestly say I am glad beyond all belief to have the opportunity to retrain in this way...
I bought this book two weeks ago and it has radically changed the relationship I have with my dog for the better! She is so much happier and so am I. The book has not only given me the understanding to accommodate my dog better and to truly appreciate 'her', but it has also given me insight into understanding myself better. In buying this book there is NOTHING to lose, but everything to gain - it will be on my recommendation list for years to come!
