Bestselling author Cesar Millan takes his principles of dog psychology a step further, showing you how to develop the calm-assertive energy of a successful pack leader and use it to improve your dog’s life–and your own.

Filled with practical tips and techniques as well as real-life success stories from his clients (including the Grogan family, owners of Marley from Marley & Me) and his popular television show Dog Whisperer with Cesar Millan, Cesar helps you understand and read your dog’s energy as well as your own so that you can move beyond just correcting behavioral issues and take your connection with your dog to the next level.

The principles of calm-assertive energy will help you become a better pack leader in every area of your life, improving your relationships with friends, family, and coworkers.

In addition, Cesar addresses several important issues for the first time, including what you need to know about the major dog behavior tools available and the difference between “personality” and “instability.”

Ultimately, what emerges from Be the Pack Leader are both happier dogs and happier, more centered owners.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melissa | 2/19/2014

    " I enjoy reading Cesar Millan's books because they are easy to read but are really helpful. I'm so glad I read another one before we got our dog and this one was helpful for new information and to reinforce the techniques we learned from the last one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Colleen | 2/18/2014

    " Not so much a how to as a why to. Very good at explaining why dogs behave the way they do and how we need to behave to provide a good home. Very good read for anyone who wants to understand why dogs do the things they do. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Angie | 2/16/2014

    " cool, maybe i can get my dog to behave better. the narrator was terrible though. he sounded like he was trying to smile the whole time, even when he shouldn't. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jasmine | 2/14/2014

    " Hahaha what can I say? I want to learn to become the pack leeedur. The dog whisperer=awesome. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristi | 2/5/2014

    " This was a good book if you want to learn to control your dog and your life in a calm assertive way. It was pretty typical dog whisperer. It had some good advice in it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Fuyuko Gratton | 1/18/2014

    " I've been hearing a lot of criticism over his methods lately. I may not agree with everything he teaches/preaches (just like any other dog trainers) but there are lots of things to learn. I don't watch his shows much (an episode or two...I'm not a TV person) so my opinion is mostly from reading his books. But what's in the books, so far, isn't offensive or disagreeable. There are some "controversial" vocabularies being used but he seems to explain well as to what he really means by them, and not what other people define the words. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Theresa | 1/18/2014

    " What I pretty much got out of this book was to work on yourself and your own insecurities and anxieties. If you are "calm and assertive" in your everyday life then your dog will respect you as the alpha you need to be in order to train him. That's great advice and all but what I really wanted was a step by step plan to get my Chiuhaua to stop jumping on and trying to french kiss everyone. only about 10% of this book was Do and Do Not. I skimmed through a lot of it. There were some great tips and useful information but I basically wanted the book to read "This is what you do. Do this and it will work every time." "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sheryl | 1/1/2014

    " Very similar to his first book, but I'm an avid Cesar fan, so I enjoyed it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carey | 12/13/2013

    " Great approach although don't know that I agree with all the ideas. Definitely need to lead the dog though so the book reinforced this important practice. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tiffany | 12/12/2013

    " The "meat" of the book is towards the end of the book. The first part mainly deals with Ceasr's background - how he came into this line of work. I wasn't overly impressed, but there were some good tips/insights. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Salimah | 12/1/2013

    " listened on cd. Cesar could be my alpha anytime! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rosie | 11/22/2013

    " A great read for anyone who has a dog or dogs. I learned so much about being the pack leader to my dogs. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kaylee | 11/12/2013

    " This book was good and taught me some valuable things and more importantly, made me think about and analyze Cesar's philosophies, not just regarding dog behavior, but also human behavior. I thought Cesar's first book, Cesar's Way was better, though. This is a quick and easy read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary | 10/25/2013

    " OK, we have a new dog, a puppy. I'm reading this book and it's very interesting and helpful and also makes me roll my eyes a bit. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 SJ . | 10/25/2013

    " This book is much better than Cesar Milan's first book Cesar's Way. His method really does work for our family! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Katie | 10/24/2013

    " i only read this to help my dog penny. and it was helpful! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anne Kadet | 9/10/2013

    " Maybe this will get my boss to stop biting. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dina | 7/29/2013

    " Enjoying this book very much! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jenae | 3/30/2013

    " Easy reading, but almost a little too heavy on the self-improvement flavor for my tastes. It does have three or four good points when it comes to living with dogs, and the rest of the pages are spent restating the same things in different words. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Allyson Schaeffer | 3/5/2013

    " Great book for any dog owner. Ceasar talks about the fundamentals of dogs being pack animals and how to get what you want from them...always calm and assertive, of course! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kathleen | 2/19/2013

    " If you have a bad dog or are thinking of getting a dog and want him to be a good dog... listen to Cesar. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sierra crosby | 2/4/2013

    " If you don't like Dog Whisperer you won't like this book. This book is very much like the show. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Andrea | 8/17/2012

    " just like the first book "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gail | 5/13/2012

    " Good ideas that make sense. My dog responds well to Cesar's suggestions. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Don Richards | 2/10/2012

    " Interesting subject. I just started reading this book. I'm in the first chapter "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Johanna | 9/30/2011

    " I want to copy the appendix out of the back of this and send it to all the dog owners I know... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Blaise | 9/11/2011

    " okay, so i didn't finish it but i would highly, highly recommend any of cesar milan's books to any dog owner. when i have a dog i am totally going to be the pack leader. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joshua | 6/24/2011

    " My wife Jessi and I got two dogs that had been left in a foreclosed home. We made the mistake of feeling sorry for them and treating them like they were hurting somehow. This made them take the role of crazy in-charge dog. Having this book has helped us get them back to good dogs...sort of! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laura | 6/3/2011

    " Yes...I'm actually reading this.

    I'm a single puppy momma, what can I say? Gotta learn somehow... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elle | 5/30/2011

    " Much more technique oriented than it's predecessor. Full review, eventually. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ronna | 4/27/2011

    " With five children and two dogs, we absolutely needed some power in our pack! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Steve | 3/27/2011

    " Good. It was a follow up to the first book. Lots of the sane ideas were reinforced while it elaborated on the how tos of the first book "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Margaret | 2/19/2011

    " Excellent way to think about training dogs or rearing children. Calm, assertive energy, not passively watching or aggressively punishing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jcs2319 | 2/5/2011

    " did not finish, probably should have. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer | 1/14/2011

    " It was an interesting, new way to look at dog behavior. We are trying out Cesar's recomendations and keeping our fingers crossed that there is hope for Bradely the Bassett in our family. He has a naughty growling habit if he thinks you want his seat or bed. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jodi | 12/12/2010

    " This is totally not my kind of book so I find it hard to rate. Seemed easy to read and informative, I wanted to believe all he had to say, it makes sense. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Janet | 12/5/2010

    " Very much the same as Cesar's Way. Good book for owners of large aggressive dogs. "
