A Member of the Family by Cesar Milan

A Member of the Family: The Ultimate Guide to Living with a Happy, Healthy Dog by Cesar Millan describes Millan's formula for raising a dog who is well-adjusted and well-behaved.  Millan starts at the beginning with choosing the right dog for the family based on lifestyle, energy levels, etc.  He discusses every aspect of dog ownership and incorporating a dog into the family in the best interest of the dog. When the dog's best interests are met, the entire family benefits.  He uses examples of his work, many from his show, The Dog Whisperer, to illustrate his points.  A chapter by his wife, Ilusion, examines the woman's role in the pack and provides insight into Millan's evolution as a human being.  A chapter by his sons, Andre and Calvin, delves into the child's role in the pack told by their point of view.  A Member of the Family is a well-written, interesting book every dog owner should own because it provides the potential to lead to not only a balanced dog but a balanced family, or as Cesar would say, a balanced pack.
