His methods use punishment and other tactics that will scare and hurt dogs. That certainly does not help them be happy. To really help your dog be happy and well behaved, look for books and videos by trainers like Karen Pryor,
Patricia McConnell, Jean Donaldson,
Kathy Sdao (From Tacoma!), Jane Killion. Here is a great website with free positive videos. http://dogmantics.com/free-video-list/

This is a great book, even if you're an experienced dog person. He puts in current information on the new vaccination protocols, which help people make informed choices for their animals. The section that deals with picking out the right dog in the first place is also very helpful for people whether they are getting the first dog or adding one to their pack. Lastly, the chapters written by Cesar's family are possibly the best stuff in the book! Overall, I have to say it made me inspired to be the best person my dogs can have, then they will be the best dogs I can have!
