   Don't listen to the negative reviews!
I was hesitant to buy How to Raise the Perfect Dog after reading the reviews that said the book was mostly old stories from Mexico, lacked specifics, and relied on lessons from older dogs in the pack. The people who wrote the negative reviews didn't really read the book after reading the whole thing. Cesar points out how older dogs teach puppies in their pack, but everything was in the context of how anyone can apply those experiences and principles. I found a lot of guidelines and tips. I read the New Skete Monks' book and found it to complement each other. Our 4 month old pup is well on his way to being a perfect dog thanks to the two books.
It shows how to raise a good dog. Cesar shows you how to raise the perfect dog in this book. I have read a lot of the other books that I have gotten. Some people on the reviews think he talks about his life with dogs. Not at all. It would give you an idea of how you can be with your dog if he ever does. I recommend this to everyone. It is!
   A must-read before selecting a new puppy.
I would recommend reading the book before buying a puppy since 13 of the book is dedicated to selecting the dog. After the first few chapters, I realized I had picked the wrong puppy. Cesar swears that any dog can be trained. This book is perfect for the first time dog owner like me, because it has lots of hands on techniques and tips. I implemented many techniques with my dog after purchasing it.
   It needed some work.
It had a lot of good pointers but needed to be more applicable to the animal shelter dog who is adopted.
   My mom got a lot out of it
The book is packed with more than enough information to justify the price, despite the fact that he tells a lot of childhood stories.
   Fantastic, Easy read
The guide is great. I have many dogs and this book makes sense. I give one to many friends and give them used ones to give to a friend or student who gets their first dog!
   A Must read
Whether you are a first time pup parent, considering a new pup, or someone who has experienced the joy of raising a puppy, this is a must read. I didn't know how much I learned.
   So helpful!
There are great practical tips for dog owners. If you're thinking of getting a puppy, you should read the first 5 chapters.
   I really disliked this book
I don't write reviews, but I did not like this book. The author is a god to dog owners and perpetuates out of date training practices. I was not familiar with him or his show before I read this, but I can easily see why he is a controversial figure. The book is so full of fluff and ego stroking that it's almost unreadable if I agree with him. The Puppy Primer was more helpful than the other training book I tried recently.
   Lots of information about dog training
I'm thinking about getting a puppy, and I'm glad I read this book because there is so much I didn't know before.
