Senior Citizen Canines: Dog Breeds For Mature Pack Leaders

People are always asking Cesar, “Which breed of dog is the right one for me?” His answer to the question is that breed doesn’t matter. Energy does. If you want to have a balanced relationship, start with a dog with an energy level the same or lower than yours. However, breed can make some difference if the potential owners have certain physical limitations.

Of course, the dogs were immediately identified as pit bulls in the headlines, whether they were or not.

By Cesar Millan This last week, I celebrated my 45th birthday with friends and family. For some reason, birthdays divisible by five are a big deal to humans.
