10 Principles for Achieving Balance

Here And Now

At this moment, you’re reading these words on some electronic device — a computer at home or work, a cell phone on the bus, a tablet just about anywhere. But, even as you’re reading these words, you’re somewhere else. You’re thinking about something that happened last week or worrying about something someone said this morning; you’re planning your next meal, trying to remember whether you left the oven on, hoping that your vacation plans will work out. In other words, you’re everywhere but where you are right now. That’s what humans do because humans are primarily intellectual and emotional. But

Let It Be

Show of hands — how many of you consider your dogs to be your children? Do you call them your “fur babies” and include them in family events? Maybe celebrate their birthdays, talk to them constantly, feed them scraps from the table? Well, if you’re doing these things, you’re acting like a lot of dog owners. The problem is, if you are, then you’re doing all of the wrong things for your dogs. As I like to say, in Mexico, dogs are skinny but happy. In other places, they are fat and neurotic. The Problem with Humanizing Your Dog Considering

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.

Life Is Simple

The holidays should be a joyous time of year for celebrating with family and friends, but they also often lead to stress, especially when people try to juggle travel plans, meal preparation, gift-buying and all the other elements that make up the season. Why Holidays Can Be Stressful for Dogs It can also be a stressful time for our dogs because schedules alter; there may be a sudden increase in visitors; and the smells, sights, and sounds in the house change as we bring in gifts, put up a tree, and cook foods that we normally do not. But your

Three Important Words

By Cesar Millan I’m now on the final days of my Latin American tour, doing my last show in Mexico City tonight, and then on to Monterrey before going home to Los Angeles. It seems like it was only a few days ago that I was writing to you about the halfway point. The end of the trip did seem to come faster than getting from the beginning to the middle. I was going to take the opportunity to answer more of your questions this week, but as I read through them I started to realize that many of you,

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

5 Steps To Becoming Calm

By Cesar Millan One of the most important things I teach people to do is always exhibit calm, assertive energy around their dogs — and it’s a good way to approach life in general. But I’m frequently asked, “How do I do that?” The good news is that once you’ve figured out how to achieve that state of calm, it becomes more instinctual and easier to do. The better news is that anyone can learn how to emit calm, assertive energy. Here are five tips to help you achieve it. Relax. Your Dog is not Misbehaving on Purpose No matter

The Secret To A Perfect Walk

Regular daily walks are a crucial part of keeping your dog calm and balanced, so what do you do when you can’t keep your dog under control on the walk? Try Cesar’s new Pack Leader Collar! When used correctly, it can be an effective tool for restoring peace for both of you. The Problem With Other Collars If you watch a sled dog pulling a load, you’ll notice that their harness fits around the base of the neck and shoulder girdle. Why? Because those are the strongest muscles in the dog’s neck; it’s where all her pulling strength is concentrated.

Act In The Now

Happy Easter and Happy Passover! This time of year in the north (and both holidays) is all about new beginnings and renewal. Mother Nature is waking up from winter, Easter commemorates the resurrection of Jesus, and Passover is all about the Jewish people making a new start by leaving Egypt in the Exodus. In some cultures, New Year is around this time, as is Earth Day. Making a new start is often a scary idea to people, but if you pay attention to Nature — specifically to your dogs — you can learn how to do it easily. If you

To Be Or…

Cear Dogs and humans first formed a pack bond tens of thousands of years ago, in prehistoric times, when human culture had barely evolved much beyond our animal past. We had language, tools, and fire, but were still living as nomadic hunters, just like wild dogs. It’s easy to imagine those early humans and domesticated wolves gathered together, with the canines sleeping around the outside providing protection. Meanwhile, in the middle, the humans have gathered around the fire and are doing something very different. They are telling stories. Storytelling It’s one of those things that humans are very good at,
