Powell's Q&A

Cesar Millan

Describe your latest project.
Cesar Millan [From the publisher:] Bestselling author Cesar Millan takes his principles of dog psychology a step further, showing you how to develop the calm-assertive energy of a successful pack leader and use it to improve your dog's life — and your own.

Filled with practical tips and techniques as well as real-life success stories from his clients (including the Grogan family, owners of Marley from Marley and Me) and his popular television show Dog Whisperer with Cesar Millan, Cesar helps you understand and read your dog's energy as well as your own so that you can move beyond just correcting behavioral issues and take your connection with your dog to the next level.

    "Millan's love for his work is obvious and infectious; whether you need a book for your dog or yourself, Millan's simple techniques, compassionate tone and intimate knowledge of dog psychology (and the human effect on it) makes this a worthy read." Publishers Weekly
How do you relax?
I breathe. I clear my mind. That's something that took a long time for me to accomplish. By changing my physiology and not paying attention to insecure voices or "fear" voices. I love steam [saunas]. I love the walk — walking. Especially with a pack of dogs. There is absolutely nothing like it and everyone should experience it at least once in his or her lifetime.

What is your idea of absolute happiness?
Exercise, discipline, affection.

On a clear cold day, do you typically go outside into the sunshine or stay inside where it's warm?
I love nature, regardless. I always go outside.

What would be your final thought before leaving this world?
I had a great time. I made a difference and helped create peace and balance for others.

Favorite sentence or passage from another writer?
"There is no knowledge behind instincts or reactions." —Leon F. Whitney, PhD, DVM, in my favorite dog book ever — a classic, Dog Psychology: The Basics of Dog Training.
