New Wolves, Old Tricks

Has the domestication of dogs also changed their ability to learn from each other? A recent study performed by the Messerli Research Institute at the University of Veterinary Medicine in Vienna, Austria, seems to indicate that this is the case. In a simple experiment, the researchers determined that wolves have the ability to learn by observing a dog carrying out an action, while most dogs in the study did not. In the set-up, both wolves and dogs observed a trained dog using a lever to open a box and receive a treat. Throughout the trials, all of the wolves succeeded

Cesar’s Advice For Walking A Pack Of Dogs

Dear Cesar, I have four dogs that I’d love to take for dog walks all together. The problem is that the minute the dogs see the dog leashes they get so over excited, they run around and bark.

Dog Training vs. Balance: What’s The Difference?

Excerpted from “Cesar’s Rules: Your Way to Train a Well-Behaved Dog.” By Cesar Millan Doing protection work with dogs was my first professional experience as a dog “trainer.” I had already begun to experiment with my theory of pack-power—related training, and my ability to get packs of dogs to work reliably in tandem was getting me some attention—especially when I was out in the park with a pack of perfectly behaved rotties following me off-leash. And it was that growing reputation that drew my first celebrity client, Jada Pinkett. At the time I met her, she was just a young
