Revue de presse

“Millan’s wizardlike facility with dogs–the calm he brings to them, the confident way he handles them–is mind-blowing.”

“[Millan] arrives amid canine chaos and leaves behind peace.”
—Malcolm Gladwell, The New Yorker

From the Hardcover edition.

Présentation de l'éditeur

For the millions of people every year who consider bringing a puppy into their lives -- as well as those who have already brought a dog home.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Dommage pour ceux qui ne lisent pas en anglais... 26 avril 2010
Par Garrivet
C'est un des meilleurs ouvrages que j'ai pu lire sur l'éducation canine. Cesar Millan partage sa riche expérience du choix, de l'achat et de l'éducation des chiens. Une lecture indispensable avant de se retrouver avec un adorable chiot à la maison. Dommage que cet ouvrage ne soit pas traduit en français. Pour ceux que l'anglais n'effraie pas pour pouvez avoir un aperçu du talent de l'auteur en vous rendant sur son site: [...]

5.0 étoiles sur 5 What I've Been Waiting For 4 novembre 2009
Par Shanna Early - Publié sur
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
This book is great--very informative, positive, and practical. I would recommend this book to anyone who is thinking about getting a puppy. As an experienced animal handler, I feel that this book is a great guide for the beginner and experienced alike. Among the things that I find particularly useful are the careful, step-by-step instructions, specific examples from puppies that Millan raised while working on this book, discussions from experienced breeders and dog trainers, and an extensive appendix of suggestions for further reading. The only thing not in the book that I would have loved would be a more thorough discussion of integrating the new puppy into a home that has older dogs already. While there is some discussion of this, it is not enough to provide the guidance I really would like.

While some dog trainers will denounce Millan's methods as archaic and harsh, I would encourage readers to keep an open mind. While Millan does not employ a positive-reinforcement-only approach--which is what many of his detractors prefer--his methods are gentle and concerned only with the well-being of the dog. His methods have made a huge difference in my life and in my dog's life. She is happier and more balanced when I follow Millan's formula. Everyone who meets her comments on how well-behaved she is and takes great pleasure in petting and playing with her--even people who are typically frightened of dogs or just uncomfortable around them. As a high-energy, alpha-type dog, I don't believe that would be the case if I had not followed Millan's methods; for my strong-willed dog, positive reinforcement is only sometimes a strong enough motivation to encourage the behaviors I want, but discipline coupled with positive reinforcement is exactly what she needs.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 This book plus the Monks' covers all you need for puppies 6 novembre 2009
Par M. Byrd - Publié sur
Years ago I found the Monks of New Skete's books and videos. I also read as many dog training books as I could find. In every book, I learned something new and even moved on to teach dog obedience training. When I found Cesar for the first time, his concepts about energy, claiming, "nose-eyes-ears," and pack leadership filled in the gaps of my dog knowledge. I wish I'd know this in the past with my other dogs, but as Cesar says, "Live in the moment." Luckily I found about him when my Standard Schnauzer was abut eight moths old. Cesar has changed my life with my dogs.

This new book about puppies is not too late for me even though my Schnauzer is now four years. It gave me a nice reminiscence of my dog as a puppy and reminded me to rehabilitate him as a dog, but also to find things to do that he will enjoy because of his breed.

IMO, if owners use Cesar's new book along with the Monks of New Skete's "The Art of Raising a Puppy," there will be fewer surrenders to shelters during their dog's adolescent stage. They're a dynamic duo!

1.0 étoiles sur 5 extremely dissapointed 1 avril 2012
Par samson - Publié sur
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
I read some of the negative reviews before I purchased three of Cesar Millan's books at the same time and I thought: this is the dog whisperer! He knows dogs and I watch his shows which are fantastic so it must be just disgruntled book/dog owners for some reason, maybe because he is unorthodox from conventional dog trainers. After buying three of Cesar's books and keeping a very open mind and trying really, really hard to get "Zen" with his whole "energy" concept I found myself extremely frustrated and extremely p-ed off, not because I wasted the money on the books but because I have never read so much BS in a book. For example, Potty training: Cesar proceeds to relate a couple stories from breeders who essentially disparage the rest of us mere idiots on house training. "What's all the fuss he writes comes from one breeder?" I can house train any dog in three days he boasts. Then he goes on to say he has a puppy mill dog that still messes years later (what happened to any dog I ask?) He then goes on to say that older dogs in his "pack" really do all the house training by example. If everyone had an older dog doing all the training then we wouldn't need to buy the book! The same is true for the professional breeders who boast about how great they are and how stupid the rest of us are, they just happen to have the parent around to do the potty training. The books are filled with so many contradictions it is ridiculous. Too many to write about all of them! In one part he disparages veterinarians and canine health professionals (which I am not) and describes how they don't let nature run its course and nature knows best and he and his breeder pals outsmart all the canine doctors. In the next section he then goes on to say even his breeder friends have to outsmart nature and nature has to be controlled with certain tricks because it isn't always perfect. One is left shaking their head with a WTF look? I generally wouldn't waste my time with all this reviewing but this one just really got me fired up. I read "How to raise the perfect Dog", "César's rules" and "Cesar's way" my advice: save your money or buy the book from the Monks of New Skete that breed German Sheppard's. It was decent but not great.

My advice to Cesar (which I'm certain he could care less but it makes me feel better to get it off my chest) stop writing about how great you are and how "Zen" you are with doggieland and how much Junior does your job for you and try to understand there are people out here truly suffering with dog issues. We need simple, comprehensive, effective steps on how to manage dog problems and few of us have a "daddy" or "junior" to assist us - it's just us. Many of us are not the neurotic confused people attempting to transform our dogs into pseudo-humans that we oftimes see on the show. We are just average, everyday working folks that love our animals and truly want to teach our animals their role, discipline, exercise and then love them, However, some have issues and standing there with all the "energy" transference in the world isn't stopping fido from crapping in the house.

Months later update: I'm an avid Amazon shopper and i trust the reviews because they are generally very insightful and accurate, especially when there are more than 5 or so reviews for a particular product. I find it interesting to note some people give a negative response to a review if they simply don't like to hear the real truth or at least opinion of the reviewer. sad for them because consumer protection is only guarded by consumers and if we only tell rosy tales and never provide sincere, critical feedback then we might as well all go by what the professional reviewers like "Consumer Reports" provide (which are worthless and a fraud IMO and paid by advertisers). I like the Dog Whisperer, i just think this book is poor and he could have done a much better job with the content.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Don't Bring Home the Puppy Without This Book! 13 octobre 2009
Par JillV - Publié sur
I definitely recommend reading this book before bringing a new puppy into your life. There are so many puppies out there waiting for adoption. The problem is, they're so cute and hard to resist that when we bring them home we feel sorry for them, don't want to be "hard on them" so we let them get away with murder. Well....that cuteness doesn't last long when that puppy grows up and develops bad habits. That's right about the time people give up and many times wind up dropping their "new puppy" off at the shelter. This step can be prevented if we know how and this book gives us the knowledge.
How to Raise the Perfect Dog teaches us which puppy is best for our energy level and what to do from the minute we bring it home in order to become the proper leader. It teaches us how to breed respect within the family (pack) so that new puppy feels secure and confident. It is our responsibility to give our dog the best life from beginning to end. This is just one of several of Cesar's books that tells us how to do just that.
Cesar and Melissa Jo make a great team!

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Poor as an instruction guide 14 novembre 2010
Par Peter R - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I bought this book hoping it would be a good instruction / how-to guide. Unfortunately the book is not really laid out for this purpose. It's very heavy on personal reflection, anecdotes and story telling. This may be good for fans of the show or people that prefer learning through stories. It gets the book to 320 pages, but that's quite a bit to wade through. I am now looking for a more traditional how-to style book....
