It was a light read, and had several cute moments with the dogs. If you love Milan's show, and love dogs, I can recommend this book. If you are looking for a serious book to teach you how to raise your puppy, you need to look elsewhere.
There is very little in this book that you cannot find elsewhere in a more condensed format. Dec 07, Penelope rated it it was ok Shelves: I found some of the general advice in this book helpful. However, it wasn't quite what I expected. The idea of following actual dogs through their puppyhood is a great idea and seems promising--until you find out that all the puppies are from top-notch breeders and perfectly fit Millan's "calm-submissive" ideal.
I know MY puppy certainly does not meet that ideal, nor is she from any sort of top-notch breeder, so it made a lot of the puppy-specific stories kind of useless. This book would be more I found some of the general advice in this book helpful. This book would be more helpful to read if you're in the process of getting a puppy and want to know what you should take into consideration.
Millan's advice about how to communicate with puppies was somewhat useful--he places a lot of emphasis on understanding that your dog isn't going to respond to normal human communication and that attempting to humanize your dog is a big mistake. The concept of using "calm-assertive energy" is more like a general thing to keep in mind while interacting with your dog I'm suffering a little of the zeal of the converted.
With a new puppy in the house, and this book as a first treatise on proper dog rearing I believe Millan has saved me a lot of grief with his clear and concise explanations of what you should expect from a dog, and what they should expect from you. As I read along, and implemented his ideas I was able to watch how the new puppy reacted and behaved.
In every case I was able to see the desired behaviour come through. It made for a very easy and r I'm suffering a little of the zeal of the converted. It made for a very easy and relaxed transition for owner and dog. View 2 comments. So after putting my baby to sleep who was part of my family for thirteen years, we decided to adopt a new puppy. She's a rescue and I wanted help getting to establish good behavior and socialization early on. Since I love reading, I went and bought a bunch of books including this one.

Through Puppyhood and Beyond by Cesar Millan it has some cool anecdotes and I do believe it has some helpful insight into vaccines, puppy behavior, and intervening early on when a puppy is developing an issue.
However, I found it lacking in details. In this book, Cesar adopts five calm puppies most from elite breeders and raises them from puppyhood. Yet, not all puppies are created equal and a calm puppy is not always available or what you end up getting. I would say the one thing I learned was to treat your puppy the same way a mother dog does instead of treating them like human babies.
Overall, it was an entertaining tale but had too much filler. View all 3 comments. Apr 20, Mandy rated it did not like it. Granted, some knowledge can be gained from the anecdotes, but only very little. Knowing that the husband would hate this, I marked the pertinent parts of the book for him to read. I ended up just a few pages. But, even these sections are extremely short and are missing the steps needed for training.
This book might be helpful for someone who has never had a dog and wants guidance on choosing a breed and deciding between rescuing a dog and getting one from a breeder. What I needed is help with training a puppy who, contrary to breed trait, has no desire to please. Dec 30, Donovan rated it really liked it. Having a dog as a child made me supremely overconfident in buying a puppy as an adult.
Tumnus, was revealing new and deeper levels of rage in me when he would steal toys from my kids, tear into the trash can, and pee on every cushion in our house. I only watched a couple episodes of "the Dog Whisperer" before deciding this guy might have the right idea.
I was right. Cesar doesn't preach that dogs are people too, he doesn't coddle or humanize pets.
In fact, h Having a dog as a child made me supremely overconfident in buying a puppy as an adult. In fact, his whole philosophy of dog training is based around the fact that dogs aren't people, they're dogs.
Tumnus is still a puppy but we're able to live with him now and withing a few weeks we've been able to crate-train him, house-train him, and even my kids 6 years old and 3 years old are better able to understand how to set boundaries with him.
May 05, Brenda Christiansen rated it liked it. There were lots of words in this book. Words that I didn't want to read. What I mean by that is I was hoping for some succinct step-by-step advice on training my puppy but instead I got a lot of talk about how puppies grow in their first few weeks of life and how to select a breed and breeder. I didn't need any of that since I've already brought my new puppy home.
I skipped a lot of those pesky words May 23, Sarah rated it really liked it. Puppies are fun, loving, mischievous, wild, mouthy, and energetic and have bladders the size of thimbles. Put in the work and in a year or so you will have a great dog.
Oct 17, Absinthia rated it it was amazing. I picked up this book three days before our new puppy. Because of this book, I was able to get both my excited little girls and my unsure husband on the same calm, assertive page. The techniques in this book are simple, humane, and common sense. Our little pup is doing wonderfully and I expect her to one day be the perfect dog!
This would have been more useful before I became a puppy owner, not after. Mar 28, Mrs. Europaea rated it liked it. I was expecting more. In How to Raise the Perfect Dog, Millan describes his success raising 4 puppies he hand picked- 3 from high priced breeders and 1 from a rescue, and he only chose dogs with an energy level he desired. He doesn't go into great detail about what to do with a high energy puppy beside trying to get him into a calm-attentive state.
While this is a reasonable suggestion, I would have liked to see more how to's than to read the wordy paragraphs about the background of breeders a I was expecting more. While this is a reasonable suggestion, I would have liked to see more how to's than to read the wordy paragraphs about the background of breeders and why spending so much money on a puppy from a reputable breeder's litter is worth the cost.
Jul 17, Loy Machedo rated it liked it. About the Book I purchased the book with a sense of curiosity to know something more about Dog Training and yes, to immerse myself into how this guy does most of the surprising stuff that he does on the TV.
Woof Aspects of the Book - The author does share a few tips, tricks and guidelines that help you understand that having a dog is more like having a child and how you can go about looking after the animal.
He has this crazy yet amazing logic to make you realize dogs can be controlled without force but by understanding them - Quite a number of examples and stories to illustrate his point. Growl Aspects of the Book - The biggest criticism I found was that the book is more of an emotionally laced contribution than a logical step-by-step manual.
The method and manner in which the author talks about a dog is as if everyone should have their entire life revolving around the animal — which may be possible for him but not everyone else. Yes, I agree that there are a few many human beings whose entire life revolves around their pet but please not me. At times I felt I was reading a Novel — which kind of beats the purpose of having purchased the book the first place.
A good book for those who feel they need to know how to look after a dog and whom consider that their dog is a part of their family. And an average book for those who feel a dog is a part of the family but in the end is a pet.
Overall Rating 6 out of Loy Machedo loymachedo. Jun 26, Lauren rated it liked it. This book is pretty good and helps you think of dog training in a way you may not have before. It really focuses on your energy and how your dog perceives you.
It has some helpful tips on how to get your dogs attention, which is nice, but it doesn't tell you what to do once that stops working! The book doesn't offer a lot of correction techniques. A lot of the solutions are "have a calm mature adult dog to help walk the puppy"- well, we don't have one of those! Or "don't use a leash to walk- This book is pretty good and helps you think of dog training in a way you may not have before.
Or "don't use a leash to walk- just go in the backyard"- yep, don't have one of those either! Overall I agree with the philosophies of this book, but it's really hard to master the "calm assertive energy" he talks about and maintain patience- or at least it is for me!
He talks about eye contact and body language, but my dog is largely ignoring the fact that I'm staring at her intently. I hate when that happens! Both my coauthor and myself wish to extend our boundless thanks to my friend Martin Deeley, Director of the International Association for Canine Professionals and an internationally renowned trainer, specializing in retrievers and gun dogs.
Hollywood animal trainer Clint Rowe also graciously shared wisdom from his more than three decades of working with dogs of all breeds and ages. We are also in debt to the many fine veterinarians who remain stal- wart supporters of our efforts, especially Charles Rinehimer, VMD, professor of veterinary technology at Northampton Community Col- lege who has worked with us on three books now , and Paula Teri- faj, DVM, of the Founders Veterinary Clinic in Brea, California, who also contributed greatly to A Member of the Family.
A top-notch breeder is hard to find, but in the writing of this book, we met and worked with several of them, particularly Brooke Walker of Covina, California, who provided us with our wonderful miniature.
My old friend Jose Navarro came through with flying colors in producing our fine English bulldog, Mr. President, and of course I will always be grateful to Azael Espino, who gave me my perfect pit bull, Junior. Thanks also to Southern California Labrador Rescue, for bringing us Blizzard and for all the selfless work they do.
Their courageous work is already improving the way people treat the other creatures with which we share our planet. Thanks also to Stephanie Shain and the Humane Society of the United States for their campaign to end the cruelty of puppy mills. My wife and I are grateful to Stacey. Candella, for her dedication to our Cesar and Ilusion Millan Founda- tion and its mission, and to Adriana Barnes and family for their hard work on the new Dog Psychology Center.
I want to acknowledge my neighbors Tim and Diane Archer for being patient and supportive with all our Dog Whisperer endeavors. And a special thank you to Frank and Juanita Trejo for all your love and encouragement. Thank you to my wife, Ilusion, for her endless patience with me, especially with all the challenges that came with raising our puppy pack. And, of course, thanks to the one who keeps the puppies bal- anced, Mr. Daddy—the greatest nanny in the world!
Melissa Jo Peltier wishes to thank: As always, props to my dear friend and cheerleader, Victoria Adams; my lovely stepdaughter, Caitlin Gray; and my husband, John Gray, who is the best life partner any girl could hope for.
Finally, thanks to my one-of-a-kind dad, Euclid J. Peltier, for pass- ing on your boundless energy, tireless work ethic, childlike sense of wonder, passion for learning, and indomitable life force. I love you very much. Several months ago, I walked into our Cesar Millan, Inc. I nudged my way in to see what all the fuss was about. There in front of me, in a slightly blurry video, was a litter of six adorable Shiba Inu puppies— three male and three female— in a padded dog bed, playfully crawling over one another.
When I learned that this was actually a live video feed in real time, I was fascinated— and impressed. The employees at the Internet company that set up the live feed fell in love with the puppies and began sending links to other friends. During a time of national eco- nomic stress, viewers claimed that watching the Shiba Inu puppies calmed them down, distracted them from their worries, and had an overall positive effect on their mental health.
The puppycam experience inspired several of our Dog Whisperer staff members to set up their own webcams to start monitoring their dogs and puppies at home. Once the Shiba Inu puppies had grown up. Their apparent helplessness and adorable, clumsy attempts to explore a world that is new to them auto- matically awakens the nurturing instincts that nature has implanted deep in the genes of every male and female, child and grandparent.
And as the testimonials from puppycam fans prove, loving puppies is good for us! Puppies bring us closer to our innocent, natural animal selves. They relieve our stress, improve our health, and remind us that true happiness exists only in the moment.
What is it about dogs that makes us believe the skills for raising them will come as effortlessly to us as raising our own human off- spring? Human beings have even learned hard lessons about trying to raise our closest cousins, the higher primates, as if they were hairier versions of ourselves.
I re- cently read a heartbreaking book, Nim Chimpsky: Though Nim did manage to learn excellent skills in American Sign Language and could communicate with it for the rest of his life, his animal na- ture soon overwhelmed the human members of his naive adoptive family, who were forced to abandon him.
One of my cardinal rules in life is that we must respect animals as the beings they are, rather than as the near-human companions we might wish them to be. To me, having a true bond with an animal means celebrating and honoring its animal nature first, before we start to co-opt it into being our friend, soul mate, or child. Although puppies may seem like wordless human babies to us, the truth is, puppies are dogs first.
Raising a puppy to be a healthy, bal- anced dog is a very different process from successfully nurturing a baby to be a happy, confident young adult.
As much as we may want them to be, puppies are not the dog equivalent of babies, especially by the time we usually take over as their caregivers. Whereas babies are essentially helpless creatures for many months, puppies come into this world as little survival machines, revealing their true animal na- tures almost immediately after they are born.
By two to three weeks, that same puppy will be able to walk on its own and will work further to establish its place in the pack.
By the time a reputable breeder feels the pup is ready to separate from its mother and littermates— at ap- proximately two months of age— that puppy is already developmen- tally years ahead of a human baby at the same age. When we adopt a.
