A TRUE STORY AS TOLD BY THE DOG THAT IS CENTERPIECE OF IT – LEO. A STORY OF HIS LIFE IN BRIEF AND ESPECIALLY HOW HE THOUGHT, DEVELOPED AND LEARNED. AND THEN HOW HE AND HIS OTHER DOG FRIENDS CHANGED THEIR BEHAVIOR FROM UNACCEPTABLE TO GOOD, AND BECOME PART OF A LOVEABLE FAMILY PACK. ALL DONE THROUGH THE GUIDANCE OF WORLD FAMOUS TRAINER AND BEHAVIORIST CESAR MILLAN, TRUE LIFE, EDUCATIONAL, THOUGHT PROVOKING, ENDEARING, FASCINATING, MIND OPENING, CHARMING AND ONE WHERE MANY DOG OWNERS CAN RELATE TO THE BEHAVIORS AND HOW THEY WERE CREATED.
I was very excited writing this book as I had to put myself into the mind of Leo. How did he view the world, how did he view the humans in his world. Did he really understand what they were communicating and wishing to do or was he interpreting it differently as a dog. Did he view all experiences and actions the same way as the humans. Did the humans realize that by not understanding dogs and how they think they were actually not only creating unwanted behavior and issues but even encouraging and rewarding them. This book I hope will help young people and all owners to understand ‘Dog’ more. For anyone who is thinking of getting a dog or already has one this is an ideal book and even if you just like dogs you will enjoy the story. My grand-daughter had it read to her as a bedtime book and loved it.
Leo, the dog, narrates his own true story from being abandoned as a puppy to his journey of learning how to effectively relate with not only other canines but humans too. His life’s adversities and adventures are filled with amusing insight on what it takes to become a successful member of a pack and to lovingly co-exist in a family environment. Dogs, like humans, have individual personalities and with the help and guidance of a world famous trainer and behaviorist, Leo, learns how to change his unacceptable behavior. This story is an entertaining ‘training’ manual for all dog owners. It is educational and thought provoking while remaining endearing and mind opening to dog owners who can relate to their animal’s behavior and how they were created and in doing so see how they are viewed in the eyes of their dogs.
Leo is a rescued dog that tells of his life story from a canine’s perspective. His quest takes him from a young, unruly, abandoned dog saved by a bleeding heart woman who cannot control him, to a rehabilitation facility where he learns manners and becomes a cast member superstar for a well-known television dog trainer Cesar Millan.
