Puppy Love: Do Dogs Have Emotions?

There’s no doubt in my mind that dogs have emotions. They feel joy after a job well done. They feel sad when a pack member passes away. And they feel love for their family members – their pack. Dog Emotions Are Different However, it’s important to remember that those emotions are different from our own. The feelings that dogs experience aren’t connected to complex thoughts. They don’t have ulterior motives or doubt. Their emotions are pure and honest. Your dog isn’t lying to you when he communicates that he loves you. The more you fulfill your dog’s needs, the more

Puppies And Exercise: How Much Is Too Much?

By Cesar Millan I’m often asked, “Is there such a thing as TOO much exercise for a puppy?” My feeling is that as long as you are careful and attentive to your puppy, the puppy is the best one to tell you what is too much exercise. Puppies often do not have enough muscle tone to take long runs, but there are always exceptions. Most puppies will tell you when they have hit their limit, and it is important to resist pushing them beyond this point. Even if your puppy wants to keep exercising and running, some things you should

Puppy Is Too Distracted On The Walk

Dear Cesar, I have a nine-month-old, 100 lb puppy who I walk every single day for the amount of time you recommend in your new book.

Rehabilitating A Puppy Mill Dog

Cesar is not alone when he recommends “adopt, don’t shop” when getting a new dog, but a substantial number of pets still come from puppy mills, whether direct from a pet shop or breeder, or via a rescue or shelter. Rescuing a Puppy Mill Dog Puppy mill dogs require extra attention and training in order to rehabilitate them because the conditions they were brought up in are horrible.

Protecting Your Puppy From The Parvovirus

By Nicole Pajer The parvovirus attacks the lining of a dog’s digestive system and prevents him from being able to properly absorb nutrients and liquids.
