    So basically Ceser said you got a lazy a$$ dog that everyone wants

  • lydiaD777

    Riley seems like the kind of dog that just wants your company, not needing much more activity than being in the same room with you. Talk to him, show him some love, cuddle, enjoy!

    my bulldog is just like Riley and my beagle is the opposite and some days I wish my beagle was more relaxed because he is very active. This was a great video.

    My dog was middle of the pack....very happy go lucky. He and I played with his ball because its what he liked to do. But if he would have been a couch guy, I would have just given him scritchies, or "guess which hand your treat is in" kind of stuff. I Love Cesar so much for his understanding of people AND dogs!❤

    My dog is just like this, she just sleeps all the time and gets up when she's hungry. When I take her to the park, after one lap of walking she is already crying to go back home. She does love the outdoors, just not running everywhere like other dogs.

    This is my dog 💯. I have had Bubba since the day he was born and even as a puppy he was just a big chubby lazy boy. He is just over 3 now and only about once a day he will want to play and run all around the house for about 10-20 minutes before laying down to chew on his bone for an hour and back to sleep he goes. He is the perfect dog because I have dislocating knee caps and was so afraid to have a dog that needed to run and play all the time or pull on the leash but he is a slow walker and very much a couch potato. 😂 I don't know what I would do without him. ❤️

    My puppy gets really excited/aggressive when he sees other dogs how do I calm him down

    • Alexa Not from Amazon
      Alexa Not from Amazon

      If he is young enough, Take him out to see dogs more often and reduce the anxiety in two ways: 1. Train him to wait patiently on a lead, even when dogs are not there. Like every couple of steps, calmly get him to sit and if he doesn't you just don't move forward. This way he eventually learns that he is not rewarded until he sits calmly. Once he can do this well with no anxiety, you can move to step 2. 2. Get him to do this, calmly, when there is another dog. If he doesn't move farter away until you can get him to. Do this a few times until he is calm at a distance. Then start getting closer to the dog but still having him calmly sit. Over time you do this closer and closer and he will eventually associate calmness with other dogs.

    I wonder why Cesar exalt dog of the middle of the pack when instead who live in a city inside small apartment with few possibility for activity will be a lot better with a couch potato dog.

    Cesar tenes canal en español?


    Hi Cesar Millan ! I am a big fan of you! In 2012 when i was 12 years old,I watched you and I wanted to be just like you.First I wanted to be vet to animals so that i cab help them,but 1 year later i went to a doctor and he said that I am alergek to cats and i was very sad about it..then i touth that i want to be like you.I started learning about the dogs,reading books about training dogs.Then I was so happy that you came in Europe in country Bulgaria in our capital Sofia. I beg my mom to go in Sofia,so that I can talk with you and see you.But we live in Varna wich is far away from Sofia.Varna is near the Black sea,I was hoping and beging God you to come in my city....but it didn't hapend.I have a lot of problems with my dog,I wanted to contact with you...and i don't know if this comment you will see it or answer.You are famous in the world. I know and I see a lot of people that need you more than me.I have searching other trainers in my city,but my dad and mom thins that we don't need a trainer,because our dog is now 9 yars old and my parents say that is too late to train him.I know that you can take a lot of money of everyone so that you can help people,this is your job and its normal and I don't know if we have that so much money.And I am sure that you wont come in Europe in country Bulgaria in my city just because i need you.I dreamed since 12 years to meet you.But I just don't have luck.Now I am 20!

    My bull mastiff/pit bull is a big couch potato. Seriously lays around all day every day. Could care less about toys or balls except on some random moment he’ll feel like playing and when he’s done he’s done. Never pulls on the leash, he’ll sit outside all stoic like observing all the neighborhood kids and any “suspicious” behavior. He never barks unless he feels the need to. Is so patient and gentle with my kids. But then he’ll see other dogs and get anxious and make all these whinny sounds and wants to charge them but then just dominating like smell them. He freaks out if kids throw rocks in a river or go swimming, the weirdest noises come from him. Like his mind shifts to a different gear, if another dog even gets near him when he’s in this anxious mind set he’ll lash out at it. Oh And he doesn’t come when called most of the perfect yet not so perfect. I adopted him 1 yr ago and he’s 5 or 6 yrs old.

    This video is too short, but if this dog really does not like to move at all, he is maybe in pain, as a professional dog trainer I always check first if a dog has a medical issue.

    I have an 11 y-o and a 12 week puppy. The puppy is on speed pretty much - takes a lot of exercise (both training and simply chase, fetch, etc.) to get her to tire even a slightest bit. So when we go on walks, the pup and I often run laps to and from the old dude. But every now and then the old dog gets in a crazy playful mood and runs around like a pup too. However, a ball has never been his thing and might never be. A short wile, but still. However, a ball has never been his thing and might never be. That’s just the way he is. Riley might surprise the human around other playful dogs. Even if the pooch never plays ball. Ever.
