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.

Even if your puppy wants to keep exercising and running, some things you should

How To Stop Puppy Chewing

Hi Cesar, We have a beautiful four-month-old white German shepherd puppy. His name is Auggie Moon, and he is as good as he is bad. Our puppy constantly wants to chew on me and I don’t know how to stop the puppy from chewing on me. I am trying to work with him with puppy treats and rewards.

Puppy Annoying Old Dog With Playful Behavior

Dear Cesar, I have a thirteen-year-old male Boston Terrier and a four-month-old female Boston Terrier. The older dog, Higgins, seems to accept the puppy, Tessa, most of the time, except for when she wants to play with him. He does not like for her to run at him or jump on him. Higgins has arthritis and is very, very calm until she begins her playfulness. He will bark at her (and sometime snap at her) to warn her to back off and let her know that he is boss. However, she doesn”t seem to learn that she should leave him

Puppy 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. My problem is he is getting to know a lot of people in my neighborhood and now every time I pass someone I know on a walk, he insists on stopping and walking with them and refuses to go at my pace… even if I start to run ahead. I have tried every style of collar I can find, including choke and pinch collars, and the upside-down leash that I’ve seen you use many
