The Dog Whisperer Cesar Millan

Dog Whisperer on DVD

As seen on “Oprah” and “The Tonight Show,” Cesar Millan — star of the popular National Geographic Channel series “The Dog Whisperer with Cesar Millan”— has demonstrated time and again his unique ability to actually ‘fix’ problem dogs. The rehabilitation techniques Millan has demonstrated on the recalcitrant canines of Oprah, Michael Eisner, Scott Rudin, Michael Bay, Hillary Duff, Will Smith, Vin Diesel, Nicholas Cage, Paula Abdul and many others, are now available to the public via Millan’s DVD production, “People Training for Dogs.”

In this 55-minute DVD premiere, Millan shares his wisdom (and wit) from a lifetime working with dogs. Featuring highlights from Millan’s popular live seminars, the DVD is a canny guide to understanding the basics of dog behavior.

Topics include:

The basics of dog behavior

Understanding the nature of the pack

Energy and body language

Giving rules, boundaries and limitations

Why the walk is important

Cesar’s fulfillment formula


Los Angeles-based Millan, in brief, believes that dogs are not the problem…the owners are. He says that many dog owners, desiring to show their love and affection, don’t clearly establish themselves as the home’s dominant being, and give up control of the home to the dog. “Most dog trainers strive to have the animal fulfill the need of the human first,” says Millan. “With my method, I first connect with the dog’s mind, and then on a physical level. This process allows me to communicate with the dog and rehabilitate his behavior. Once this is accomplished, the animal will happily and willingly do the owner’s bidding.”

People Training for Dogs” can be purchased on Millan’s website dogpsychologycenter.com or at one of his national dog behavior seminars for $29.95, a fraction of the cost of a private session. Posted by Picasa
