What a help!

If you have a Pack as we do, 4 border collies and 1 sheltie and things start to go haywire, it's true, look at your own life and the stresses you bring. We had a major incident in which one dog who is normally not aggressive got into with another and I thought my sheltie would lose his ear. They were reflecting my inner chaos and unhappiness from work and not keeping any pack order. Calm assertive has dealt with so much of the situation, exercise so much more. All my dogs walk well on or off leashes,but now they are so much more clear on who is the leader of the pack. The one dog we knew had problems (I hate the word issues) with strangers is so much better, especially since we've told people, don't look, don't talk, just basically ignore her. She comes around like the young dog she really is, rather than the tough thing she wants you to see. Did I mention they are rescues and each had to be rehabilitated. There have been so many times when I wish Cesar could appear and help, especially when I know he'll be in my area the first of the year, but this book is a close second. My physician uses it with his kids and I will pass it on to teachers at my school!

Useless Information

What would have made Be the Pack Leader better?

This book explained what you should do, but not how to do it. Cesar's suggestions are easier said than done, and without knowing how to effectively become a pack leader, or even some of the steps to take to start, this book is just a lot of words and repetitive thoughts.
