CESAR MILLAN: The best thing to do always is to stay calm. Most people make a big deal about leaving. They get sad and a dog always, you know, they feel your energy. So it's best to leave the home calm. Make sure you exercise the dog before you leave. A tired dog is going to be easier to do the transition. So being calm and a long walk is really the recipe to make sure that your dog actually understands to stay behind, wait for you. Simple as that.
