The Puppy Selling Ban Debate

“How much is that doggy in the window?” used to be a common phrase across America. For most people, getting a puppy meant going to the locally owned pet store to pick one out. No one ever thought about where the puppies came from and the condition of that place, or about dogs sitting in shelters. Today, a war is raging on whether or not pet stores should be legally allowed to sell puppies. According to the Best Friends Society, twenty states have passed some type of legislation that either bans puppy selling altogether or creates standards for selling puppies,

Introducing A Puppy To Walking On A Leash

by Martin Deeley Patience is Key The one thing I find about training dogs is that there are no hard and fast rules. Some dogs take to a collar and leash easily and some do not. Some owners have to put their dogs on a leash the moment they get them—especially if they live in apartments and there are leash laws—and some may not put their dog on a leash for a few months. I have worked with many different dogs and owners over the years, and the most important features of introducing a leash is patience, calmness, confidence, taking

Junior celebrates his birthday every year in August, on the same day as Cesar’s but, as many of Cesar’s fans know, Junior is the second pit bull to hold the position of “right-hand dog,” having taken on that mantle when Cesar’s previous pit bull, Daddy, passed away on February 19, 2010. This is Junior’s story. Daddy’s Story Junior’s story really begins almost twenty years ago, when Cesar first met four-month-old Daddy in

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. 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 this connection will develop

Dog Problem: Puppy Soiling Crate

Question from Jesica Mcauliff: I have a 3-month-old pit bull/boxer mix puppy that my husband and I have been crate training. Lilly had been doing really well not soiling her crate, but recently she has been doing it everyday, even if she is only in there for a few hours. We have tried everything to break her of this habit but nothing works. Please, do you have any advice? Cesar Millan’s answer: Well, Jessica, the first thing you need to get out of your head is that you’ve “tried everything.” If it keeps happening, you haven’t tried everything! What I

It’s completely normal for a puppy to fight a human’s influence. A human being wouldn’t be training a puppy in a wild pack, after

We have babysat the puppy of a friend for a weekend, and our dogs hate puppies. Puppies are ignorant and absurdly brave and curious. Is there any direction on how to get the pup to learn to respect the big dogs without him getting hurt? I am sure, if I leave a pup unsupervised with my geriatric neutered male, the old man will joyously get rid of the puppy problem. I have not found
