Cesar Millan: The Dog Whisperer

I often peruse the bestseller lists just to see what people are reading and what is currently popular.

This summer, dogs are definitely having their day on the non-fiction charts.

John Grogan's Marley and Me has sat on the list for a long time. From everyone I've spoken to, the book is a charming tale that is thoroughly enjoyable. Marley is called the worst dog ever, but it is obvious his family is devoted to him.

People want to read about misbehaving dogs. They also want to know what they can do so their own dogs stop misbehaving. That's where a person like Cesar Millan steps in. His book, Cesar's Way, has been selling like illegal fireworks on the third of July. Of course, it helps that Millan already had widespread popularity because of his National Geographic Show, Dog Whisperer with Cesar Millan and his appearance on such other shows as Oprah.

I managed to catch an episode of the National Geographic episode and it is easy to see why Millan has such wide appeal. He loves dogs, but he is also very realistic about them. He doesn't try to anthropomorphosize dogs. Instead, he points out that they are pack animals and that what they need are exercise, discipline, and love--in that order.

It's a good summer out there for people who are dog and book lovers!
