It's actually a good movie. I'd love to read a book too.

A dog leans nothing from it but to fear you, to be confused. A message is far from clear.

The key is to work your way around it and to built trust and respect in your relationship with a dog, not through force, as truly dominant dog will simply not put up with that c*ap. It won't and it will definetely fight you back and possibly seriously injure you. Especially if it's some kind of large dog aware of its strength. Majority (if not all) of dogs shown in Cesar's shows are not dominant, they are misbehaving because owners have failed to teach them or have spoiled them to the point the dogs seem retarded and have forgotten to be dogs.
