If you only buy one book ever about your dog, make it this one! While his book will not explain how to teach your dog commands (sit, stay, come) it will teach you how to get your dog to operate in the human world, be easy to live with and most importantly, keep you from ending up in a lawsuit. This book is revolutionary, an absolutely essential read for the dog owner. It shows you how to keep your dog in line - no more annoying, destructive and sometimes dangerous behaviors such as obsessiveness about food and toys, acting dominant and aggressive towards other dogs, biting, barking, whining, etc. No other book on dog training teaches this.
I read several books before this one trying to figure out how to get my puppy to behave. She knows basic commands and several tricks, but I found it didn't keep her from chasing people and animals down the road, barking at every noise and jumping up on people. Nothing I read taught me that. After reading this book, however, and using its principles, my puppy has changed dramatically and quickly.
We give our dogs, love and affection and usually that's it! Just like with people (children especially) you can't love your dog into behaving. Exercise and discipline need to come first. Exercise to release their pent up energy and discipline in the form of rules and boundaries, not to be confused with punishment. Then comes the love and affection. This is what leads to a balanced, stable and healthy dog, one that doesn't rule your life.
Keep an open mind while reading this book, as with anything that really works, it may contradict many things that you have heard or read about dog training. It explains the psychology behind dog behavior and how we can teach a dog to adapt to our world, which is much different than theirs. It will change your life and make you and your dog much happier!

After having invested thousands of dollars in training assistance, obedience experts, dog psychologist, and well meant advice of many friends Cesar's techniques have finally brought a new happiness to our small pack of six dogs.
He just makes sense. When we think of our dogs as loved dog companions and treat them as such, rather than little people in our home, our life and theirs have become much more enjoyable.
Cesar's way has worked very well for use especially with one of our dogs that had an aggression issue. If you've reached a point where you don't know what to do - do what Cesar says!
