Jenni’s ‘Good Read’

leave a comment »

When we’re not on-the-air or at our desks, we like to pick up good books. Most of us here at the station are, in fact, avid readers. In the style of NPR’s “What We’re Reading” (an excellent weekly guide) we, too, decided to share what’s currently being read by WKMS staff members, student workers and volunteers.

Cesar’s Way: The Natural, Everyday Guide to Understanding and Correcting Common Dog Problems by Cesar Millan and Melissa Jo Peltier

Buy this on Amazon

Product Description:
There are at least 68 million dogs in America, and their owners lavish billions of dollars on them every year. So why do so many pampered pets have problems? In this definitive and accessible guide, Cesar Millan—star of National Geographic Channel’s hit show Dog Whisperer with Cesar Millan—reveals what dogs truly need to live a happy and fulfilled life. Whether you’re having issues with your dog or just want to make a good bond even stronger, this book will give you a deeper appreciation of how your dog sees the world, and it will help make your relationship with your beloved pet a richer and more rewarding one.

“I’m a new dog owner. We welcomed our puppy into our home in early November…and life changed dramatically! I borrowed a copy of Cesar’s Way after watching a few episodes of the show. While I don’t watch the TV program regularly, I loved this book. It’s a quick read and Cesar really puts things into perspective. He promotes easy to remember formulas for a healthy relationship with your dog: exercise, discipline, and affection, in that order. I especially liked reading about Cesar’s early life in Mexico and his stories about celebrity dog owners, like Oprah.” – Jenni Todd
