The Real Meaning Of “Dog Nation”

The first season of “Dog Nation” is over, although you can still catch it online via your cable provider or streaming on Hulu. Through the first season episodes, my son Andre and I visited seven cities, worked with seventeen organizations, and helped several dozen people with their dog issues. During the process, Andre and I got to know each other a lot better and it also reinforced our understanding of what “Dog Nation” is really all about. For me, it’s never been just a TV show. It’s a mission. The mission is to unite the human community over our common

Partial Leadership

Humans are very used to having different rules for different places. We don’t act the same way at a football game as we do in church, for example. These little compartments for our rules happen all the time, as we go from home to work or school, and when we go out to entertain ourselves. We behave differently depending on whether we’re at a fancy restaurant or a fast food place, whether we go to a play or movie rather than a bar, and whether we’re at a museum or playing baseball in the park. People learn the appropriate behaviors

Words And Reality

By Cesar Millan Although humans first began to domesticate early ancestors of dogs about thirty thousand years ago, it wasn’t until the 1880s that the first flea and tick treatments were developed at about the same time as the rabies vaccine, allowing dogs to move closer to our human packs. After that, it wasn’t until the 1970s that the concept of animal rights even existed, and not until the 1990s that service dogs were recognized and finally allowed, by Federal law, into places where dogs were normally prohibited. It wasn’t until twenty years ago that San Francisco became the first

Bonding

By Cesar Millan Today marks the end of the month-long event known as the World Cup and, even living in a country that usually doesn’t pay much attention to fútbol, like the U.S., this event definitely got people’s interest. Now I know that some of my staff watched the games during work, but that’s okay. Humans form bonds over things like sporting events, especially when they root for the same teams, which creates a stronger pack. It can also be a healthy outlet for our natural competitive urges. But there are unhealthy sides to human bonding in teams, when competition

Protecting Your Home And Family While Rehabilitating An Aggressive Dog

By Juliana Weiss-Roessler The safest way to handle an aggressive dog is to seek help and rehabilitate the dog. People who rely only on aggression-proofing their home aren’t doing their dogs any favors. In fact, many of the steps that people typically take to protect others from their dog, such as keeping the dog separate and locked up, can actually feed the aggression. And many methods can also make your dog seem scarier, making humans feel more afraid — anxious energy that will also contribute to your dog’s aggression. It’s important that a consistent plan for rehabilitation be put in

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

Hiking For Homeless Dogs

By Michelle Sathe Best Friends Animal Society Pet Adoption and Spay and Neuter Center Best Friends Animal Society Pet Adoption and Spay and Neuter Center aims to turn Los Angeles into the nation’s largest no-kill city by 2017 through brown-paw volunteer led enrichment hikes. It was a gorgeous Southern California spring morning, and for a few hours 18 dogs forgot they were homeless. Axel, a buff three year-old American Staffordshire terrier mix, led the pack of dogs, staff, and volunteers from the Best Friends Animal Society Pet Adoption and Spay and Neuter Center on an enrichment hike up the four

Progress

Greetings from Germany! I’m on the road again with my Cesar Millan LIVE tour, and one thing that always strikes me about Europe is the combination of the old and the new. I can be looking at a gleaming, modern skyscraper in the heart of a city, then turn around and see an ancient cathedral or castle. It’s a reminder that one of the key words defining humanity is progress. We don’t always progress forward, but our species is always changing — think about how a lot of us update our phones every two years or constantly have to learn

Reinforcement

You’ve probably heard expressions like “You can catch more flies with honey than with vinegar,” and every culture has their own version. In Spanish, the saying is “Logras más con una sonrisa que con una paliza,” which in English literally means “You achieve more with a smile than with a beating.” What all of these proverbs basically mean is “You get more if you’re nice than if you’re mean.” Are the proverbs true? Well, that all depends. It depends on who or what you’re trying to get something from. And it’s true — you will get more from being nice

Emotion And Intention

Anybody who has read or seen at least one interview with me, or has read or watched at least one of my books, shows, or DVDs, knows at least this: I am constantly pointing out the importance of energy when it comes to communicating with our dogs. Energy is Everything To a dog, energy is everything. A dog doesn’t care whether you’re a pope, a prince, or a peasant. A dog primarily knows you by two things: your scent and your energy. Now, the scent part is obvious and requires no explanation. However, one of the questions I get asked
