From AudioFile:

The famed "dog whisperer" reminds expectant puppy owners to respect puppies as the animals they are and the dogs they will become--and to avoid seeing them as the human offspring they often stand in for. Milan reads his book quietly but emphatically, and his message is compelling: Raise puppies to be dogs first, even when tempted to treat them as the dog equivalent of babies. By working with puppies, Milan notes in his by turns stern-then-humorous style, listeners can learn how to maintain the stability their dogs were born with and how to avoid mistakes right from the start--such as putting their human needs before those of their dog. Cesar Milan's distinctive voice, sensible advice, and passionate sense of purpose make this a winning production. J.C.G. AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine
