Book Description

The Happy Dog Manual:
Based on the natural behavior of dogs,--their eagerness to please, keeness to learn, and desire to understand their position--learning and following these nine simple, time-tested techniques help create a stronger, healthier and happier bond between the owner and his or her best friend.

". . . How, then, can the dog be anything other than a lover of learning since it defines what's its own and what's alien." --

"When a dog runs at you, whistle for him." --
Henry David Thoreau

"Every dog must have his day." 
--Jonathan Swift

Editorial Reviews


"In the world which we know, among the different and primitive geniuses that preside over the evolution of the several species, there exists not one, excepting that of the dog that ever gave a thought to the presence of man."  --Maurice Maeterlinck 'Our Friend, The Dog'

From the Author

"The most important thing that we have to provide every day is that we are the pack leader, that we set the rules, the boundaries and the limitations, and then we love. Most of the people, they go to get a dog because they need somebody to love. So they are going after what they need, not what the dog needs. And that, to me, creates instability immediately, and the dog sees the human as a soft energy. So they don't follow the lovable leader or a spiritual leader; they follow a dominant one." --Cesar Milan

1.0 out of 5 stars Can't spell... April 30, 2012
By Steve
Format:Kindle Edition
The author can't even spell "manual", and the book is only 6 pages long. Obviously, a poor attempt to make money without giving anything in return...

Tells you what you need to do but not really how to do it. Glad I didn't have to pay for this.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not a manual December 12, 2012
By Tracy
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a very brief introduction of how dogs should be treated. It does not give details.

Book should have been expanded and could have been good.
