How To Find Your ‘A-Ha’ Moment

I’m very excited about the new season of “Cesar 911,” which premieres this Friday on Nat Geo Wild, and I’m particularly proud of this show because it has given me a chance to go out and help communities of people — friends, neighbors, and co-workers — and, of course, to rehabilitate dogs. I faced some interesting and challenging cases, but also was rewarded by seeing people finally have their “A-ha” moment and find balance with their dogs. But the people on the show weren’t the only ones who learned from the experience. I did, too. The Importance of Follow-Through I

A Family Affair

In quite a lot of cases where I’m called in to help a family with their dog’s misbehavior, I quickly find out that the dog is not the problem. In fact, some people have told me that I turned out to be more of a marriage counselor than a dog behaviorist. Humans are Pack Animals, Too AsI often say, humans like to think that we’re not pack animals, but we are. And we need to remember that, when we bring dogs into the household, we are not creating two separate packs. Every member of that household, human or dog, is

You Are The Reward

One of the things people often ask me is, “What’s the best training method for my dog?” It can be a confusing subject, because there are two approaches to training, and various techniques. Training comes down to either “do” or “don’t” — encourage a positive behavior or discourage a negative one. This can be based on rewards, like a treat, or ending a bad thing, like stopping in your tracks when the dog pulls and not moving until she relaxes. Techniques are not important. I do use positive reinforcement when I work with dogs, but not in the way that

Why Dog Owners Have An Advantage

Have you ever considered how walking a dog could benefit your health? Walking your pup each day is not only a great way to fulfill Fido’s physical and mental health needs, but it’s also beneficial to your own well-being. Studies have shown that walking a dog each day can improve fitness levels, lower stress and even prevent medical issues. While it’s possible for your dog to release his energy by playing in the backyard or dog park, taking your canine friend for daily walks offers incredible benefits beyond meeting his physical needs. Dogs who walk daily with their humans develop

Cesar’s Advice For Walking A Pack Of Dogs

Dear Cesar, I have four dogs that I’d love to take for dog walks altogether. The problem is that the minute the dogs see the dog leashes they get so over-excited, they run around and bark. It takes me forever to catch the dogs to get the dog leashes on. My lab weighs 100 pounds or 45 kilos and once I am able to catch him he pulls me and steps on my other two dogs, a JRT’s and a rat terrier-Chihuahua mix. Please help me walk my pack of four dogs.

The Right Place

By Cesar Millan Imagine this scenario. You’re nine years old, sitting in school minding your own business when the teacher asks you to follow her. She takes you to the principal’s office but there’s no one there, and then she asks you to sit behind the desk. “You’re in charge now,” she tells you, and then she leaves. If you believe her, then pretty soon you’ll probably have made every class recess and every item in the cafeteria candy, and caused complete chaos in the school. It sounds ridiculous, but it’s something that humans do constantly. Why Dogs Need Pack
