These are definitely the dog days of summer for Cesar Millan: On top of shooting his National Geographic Channel show, The Dog Whisperer, and writing books, the master trainer is watching over rehabilitated canines at his Dog Psychology Center in South Los Angeles.

HOW TO TAME A PACK OF DOGS
1. Tire them out. Walk lower-energy dogs for 30 minutes, higher-energy dogs for an hour.
2. Hold back. Practice "no touch, no talk, no eye contact" when doggie guests arrive.
3. Reward good behavior. Dogs need exercise and discipline before affection.
