Dogs have found themselves in an odd predicament by living with humans. In the wild, dogs don’t need humans to achieve balance. They have a pack leader, work for food, and travel with the pack. But when we bring them into our world, we need to help them achieve balance by fulfilling their needs as nature intended them to be.
Dogs are animals, and they respond to calm-assertive leadership—not emotional arguments or negotiations. If you have a dog in your life, it is important to understand how to allow him/her to live in a balanced way and achieve a healthy state of mind.
Ceasar Millan's, the Dog Whisperer, fulfillment formula is exercise, then discipline, and finally, affection. As the human pack leader, he believes you must set rules, boundaries, and limitations and always project a calm-assertive energy.
According to Ceasar when you fulfill your dog on a primal level as nature intended, you will feel in tune with your dog and connect with your dog in a deeper way. Put your dog's needs first, and take responsibility for our dog's state of mind. Only then will you experience all the love your dog has to give!
