Puppy training with Cesar Millan
Puppies are adorable with their pot belly tummies, clumsy gait and boundless energy. However, their cuteness quickly fades when they chew up your remote control, go potty on your shoes or won’t listen to you. Now is the time to get your puppy under control before he grows into an unruly adult dog. Puppy training with Cesar Millan can help you gain control of your puppy and correct bad behavior.
Cesar Millan has had a way with animals since he was a child, living and working on his grandfather’s farm. Even at the young age of 13, he aspired to be the best dog trainer in the world. He has been a dog walker, a dog groomer and is a self-taught, expert dog trainer. He is widely known for his National Geographic series, Dog Whisperer with Cesar Millan, and his ability to train even the most difficult dogs. His commitment to training dogs doesn’t stop there, he also designs and creates his own product line to help owners in their training endeavors.
Leader of the Pack
Puppy training with Cesar Millan stresses the need for the owner to establish himself as a strong pack leader. Dogs are natural pack animals and therefore, it is imperative that the owner establish this position through exerting a calm, assertiveness. Establishing a routine and keeping it consistent is also key.
At the core of puppy training with Cesar Millan are three components that he refers to as the fulfillment formula:
To fulfill the exercise component, the puppy needs to take a minimum of two structured walks per day with it’s pack leader.
Discipline consists of clearly defined rules and boundaries, enforced consistently.
Affection consists of playtime, rewards and treats.
Cesar stresses the importance of the puppies need first for exercise, then discipline and then finally affection. When all three of these needs are met, the result is a happy, relaxed, well-balanced puppy.
