Return to Book Page. Oct 17, Absinthia rated it it was amazing. The title is deceptive, as other posters have noted. The main point is using calm-assertive energy to affect your dog's mental state, and by extension, its behaviour. With the money he saved, he started a freelance dog rehabilitation service, primarily offering his expertise with extreme cases. Here are ours for the comments:.
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! Definitely a good pre puppy book would have given 3. Jun 14, Julie rated it it was ok.
This is a perfectly mediocre puppy reference book. If any prospective puppy owner read it cover to cover, they'd run for the hills and never get a dog. I've raised a number of fine puppies in my years, and I think this book does contain good advice and insight. That being said, however, many times throughout the book I thought the recommendations especially surrounding adopting through a reputable breeder were over the top and inauthentic.
I'd recommend checking this book out at the library instead of purchasing it. Skim it for some nuggets of info, and roll your eyes at anything that starts to make your heart palpitate. Then go find your new furry BFF. Jul 28, Daniel rated it did not like it Shelves: Too wordy by far.
Wanted some practical, solid advice. Instead got a story about how Mr Milan raised some dogs, along with a lot of other meandering self-congratulatory odds and ends. Read Good Owners Great Dogs instead. Same approach, much more practical and without Mr Milan's gigantic ego.

If you've watched Dog Whisperer before, there won't be much that's new. The main point is using calm-assertive energy to affect your dog's mental state, and by extension, its behaviour. Do this consistently and things should work out and you'll end up with a balanced dog. There are long examples, but I was hoping for more specifics on various types of problem behaviour prevention. Overall, it's good, but not impressive. Jul 05, Liisa rated it it was ok.
I skimmed through most of this book. The title is deceptive, as other posters have noted. The book concerns Cesar Millan's quest to raise several perfect puppies, which he hand-picks from various breeds and breeders, selecting only what he considers the "perfect" puppy of the litter.
There is little practical information that can be applied to anybody raising any type of dog. This is mostly common knowledge, puppy raising book. There are a few insights to how a puppy or a dog thinks but no real tips here to help you if your get stuck along the way. If you've watched the TV show you know what to expect from this book. Jan 20, Robert Cox rated it it was ok. Less a manual, more of a soap box, laced together with an unnecessarily long anecdotal stories about three puppies being trained.
Watch like three episodes of Dog Whisperer and buy yourself a real training book. Feb 10, Anjj rated it it was amazing. Kann das Buch nur jedem neuen Hundebesitzer empfehlen. Jan 23, Jaci Starr rated it really liked it.
So far as long as I do what Cesar suggests it works. For instance, the in- born characteristics of determination and staying power can be transformed into unwavering loyalty and patience.
A balanced pit bull has the ability to wait calmly and respectfully for long periods of time, until its owner gives it a new command or direction to follow. With children or smaller puppies, pit bulls can be the epitome of the indul- gent babysitter, because their bodies are built to easily withstand the climbing, pushing, and pulling that playful juveniles of both species can inflict.
A well-socialized, balanced pit bull will put up with all sorts of childish antics and show stoicism and good humor. Any reader who has watched my television program is probably familiar with the soulful green eyes and stocky, golden body of my faithful companion, Daddy. At nearly sixteen years of age, Daddy has experienced everything a modern dog could possibly dream of— traveling all over the United States with me and even walking the red carpet at the Emmys.
It was absolutely the most perfect time to start shaping his young mind. Daddy was an eager and receptive pupil to both dogs and humans, and he has grown up to be the best, most positive role model imaginable for his much-maligned breed. He now has his own legion of fans and even has his own Facebook page! He definitely deserves his brilliant reputation. Today Daddy officially be- longs to me. He and I share a bond that goes beyond anything nature or science can explain.
I believe we have achieved a kind of ideal com- munion between human and dog, one that I like to use as an example to my clients to prove to them that this kind of healthy closeness with their pet is something very real and within their reach as well.
Because his energy is so completely balanced, sometimes just being in the presence of Daddy will turn a troubled dog around. As a senior dog, Daddy still takes the same delight in the small mo- ments of life that he took as a puppy, but his advancing years are clearly catching up with him physically. I had a plan— Daddy himself was going to pass the baton of his greatness to the next generation— by helping me raise his ideal successor!
In addition to his edu- cational seminars and work with unstable dogs, he and his wife have founded the Cesar and Ilusion Millan Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing financial support and rehabilitation expertise to shelters. For the millions of people every year who consider bringing a puppy into their lives—as well as those who have already brought a dog home—Cesar Millan, the preeminent dog behavior expert, says, "Yes, you can raise the perfect dog!
Here, Cesar tells you everything you need to know to create the best environment for a well-balanced dog in order to avoid behavior issues in the future, and shows you how to correct the most common behavior issues for young dogs.
Packed with new information aimed specifically at the particular needs of puppies and adolescents, and written in Cesar's friendly, accessible style, How to Raise the Perfect Dog answers all the most commonly asked questions and guides you towards a loving, satisfying life-long relationship with your best friend.
