Update on the Cesar Milan training

Cesar MillanI wrote recently after acquiring our new dog about how we were employing the Cesar Millan training methods for the two books we had bought – How to Raise the Perfect Dog and Cesar’s Way.

Here’s a bit of an update…On the whole, with the odd glitch as you can see, yes this is one of the actual books – it’s working out pretty well. Both of the boys are way better on the lead, and generally behave pretty well together. They do occasionally have issues with each other and get a bit boisterous – but we expected that with them both being dogs.

I’ve read one of the books – must get around to the other – and pretty much watched most of everything he’s done for TV. It works – it really does. Though I do wonder sometimes that he seems to have something very special about him, almost a ‘Doctor Doolittle quality’, that we mere mortals can never hope to emulate. The man has a gift!

Cesar Millan – How to Raise the Perfect Dog

I’ve talked a bit recently about the new puppy and the ensuing training – here’s my copy of Cesar Millan’s “How to Raise the Perfect Dog”, the second of the two of his books I bought recently, as I found it this morning… I love the irony of the ‘crime’….

Cesar Millan

I wrote recently about having bought a couple of Cesar Millan books. Prompted by the arrival of a new dog in the house – we decided we really needed to get the new boy off to a good start and iron out a few (thankfully) minor discrepancies in our existing boy!

Well, I’ve just read the first of the two books we bought – Cesar’s Way – and we’ve also watched the entire first series of The Dog Whisperer as I’ve been reading the book. To be honest I found both the book and the TV series a bit repetitive – not necessarily a bad thing, as there is a simple philosophy behind everything he says. It’s really simple! The repetitive nature of both the book and the series sure makes the basic principles sink in… Read the rest of this entry »

Off with his balls…!

Well – I’ve written a bit recently about the new puppy that joined our family. Now the dreaded hour his here. Tomorrow at 9am he will be separated from his testicles. In some ways it’s a bit sad that being a pure bred Labrador we won’t be breeding him at least once. But from past experience I think it does help calm dogs down as they say, and reduces the risks of them becoming wanderers… Added to that, where we live there are to many strays and muts in need of help it seems wrong to potentially add more into the local population.

I don’t think they take it personally. How can they, they’re dogs not people! But there is always something hard about one male (of any species) doing this to another. I can’t help feel a little bad about it, even if it is the right thing to do… Read the rest of this entry »
