You don’t speak dog?

With all this dog training talk, in fact, its even part of our name, you might be surprised to learn; we don’t actually ‘train dogs or puppies’. We train people; and rehabilitate or condition dogs.

We provide the guidance you need, to give your new puppy or older dog a strong foundation for a well-balanced, healthy and carefree life.

The official Web site of world-renowned dog behavior expert, Cesar Millan. Cesar is the star of the National Geographic Channel hit TV series Dog Whisperer with Cesar Millan, broadcast in many countries, a New York Times bestselling author, and the definitive authority in offering dog behavior advice to dog owners worldwide.

Cesar counsels people to use calm- assertive energy to establish themselves as “pack leaders,” and to consistently give their dogs rules, boundaries, and limitations to help correct and control unwanted behavior. Central to Cesar’s approach and teachings is his “fulfillment formula” for people to give their dogs “Exercise, Discipline, and Affection,” in that order.

Dog Whisperer Collar and Walking BeltIn addition to his hit TV show and bestselling books, Cesar and his approach to dog behavior is consistently the subject of national media attention, including The New Yorker, Los Angeles Times, CBS-TV, Nightline, The Oprah Winfrey Show, and The Today Show.

Cesar's experience and understanding of dog behavior gives CMI the unique ability to develop products and services specific to his philosophies and methods, empowering dog owners around the world to correct unwanted behaviors.

You will find DVDs, Books, Dog Supplies, and other products of interest to dog owners needing solutions to common dog behavioral issues, or simply looking to build a more fulfilling relationship with their dog.

Dog Accidents Happen

Dogs’ sense of smell and hearing are far keener than the human. When your puppy or new dog has a potty accident or just spit up something unpleasant they ate and you use the enzyme product from the local pet store, it is leaving behind traces they can smell. This will not only lead to repeat incidents, but leaves your house with a foul smell over time.

We have used Planet Urine products for over 6 years and it is simply the best all natural soil removing system. Not only will they help you find and remove old stains, but also, this stuff takes out all kinds of nasty bodily fluid and waste stains dog or humans might leave behind.

Made in the USA, the owner of this company actually answers the phone if you have a question. Their website is loaded with information, so chances are, you won’t have to call! You’ll only see their products at mom and pop style retailers, no big corporations allowed!

The Importance of a Proper Diet for Your Dog

Your dog relies on you for everything. It is important they eat biologically appropriate, organic or sustainable-farmed food ingredients from a reliable source or manufacturer. It may cost more, but it will save you money at the vet in the long run. We feed PureVita by Nutri-Source, Grain Free Turkey kibble - it can be found at your local all-natural pet food store. Treats though given rarely include organic apple and banana slices or cubes of ice.

Our dogs drink the same filtered water from the fridge that we do. Clean water, healthy food and controlled exercise go hand in hand for a long living, healthy canine companion.

Dog food (in fact human food) standards in Canada & the EU are superior, in our opinion, to that of the FDA and USDA, if you want to eliminate chemicals and unhealthy processed or GMO food ingredients from your diet. However, Nutri-Source Dog Food is among the few good dog foods we have found produced in the USA: they don’t appear on any FDA or USDA website recall lists. This is an accomplishment not many of the top-rated ‘all-natural and holistic’ dog food companies in the USA can claim.

Dog Toys

There are companies still making toys in the USA or Canada that provide top quality here are some we know of: Kong, Nylabone, Planet Dog, and West Paw Design.  A top pick for your dog as a bone to chew is an all-natural antler. It’s the latest craze, they are expensive if purchased locally, however well worth the money.

If you think safety issues with dog toys is not a problem, then you can count yourself lucky not to see or have Cesar Millan's Dog Collarhad an incident happen to your dogs. We are also fortunate enough to have never experienced this and it is why we highly recommend you be choosey when it comes to toys and chews for your dog.

Toys or chews that are safe to leave with your dog-unsupervised are far and few between. I do not recommend leaving dogs alone with the majority of toys or chews out there. Most toys and chews are designed to be supervised and have warning labels stating this, but they go ignored.

If your dog is destroying things or is aggressive in manner a toy is not the solution to your problem and can become part of the problem for someone who does not understand how a dog thinks. Dogs need leadership, guidance and controlled exercise to gain balance in their life, toys are just another part of humans treating dogs like humans, unless utilized in a way to stimulate positive dog behavior.

Locally Made Dog Clothes and Totes

Even though we live in sunny southern California, there are plenty of times a small dog or even a large dog might need a coat. For the absolute best dog outerwear and the coolest small dog fashion carrier I’ve seen, go to The Preppy Pet and ask for Coats N Totes made in Temecula, CA.

Finally a reward for those of you who work with your dogs and strive to have well behaved dogs so they can be with you, most of the time without imposing upon our human counterparts… or if you are lucky enough to have easygoing pets, Bring Fido makes life a little simpler.
