Cesar Millan, one of the world’s most reknown dog trainers
Are you tired of coming home to chewed up pillows, remote controls and shoes? Are you fed up with being dragged by your dog when you take him for walks? Are you frustrated that your dog won’t stay off the couch and the bed? If so, then dog trainer Cesar Millan can help you gain control of your dog and his problem behaviors.
A Boy with a Dream
Cesar Millan, a renowned self taught dog trainer, got his start working with animals on his grandfather’s farm in Mexico. He found a passion for dogs and at 13 years old, declared he was going to be the best dog trainer in the world. Upon coming to the United States, he was employed as a dog groomer and gained respect for his ability to handle difficult dogs. Today he is best known for his National Geographic series, Dog Whisperer with Cesar Millan and is also the owner of The Dog Psychology Center in Santa Clarita, California.
As a child, Cesar Millan observed the interactions of the packs of working dogs on his grandfather’s farm. He was enthralled by the way they communicated with one another, resolved disputes and how the mothers raised their pups. Dogs are pack animals by nature and Millan believes in the necessity for the owner to establish his position as leader of the pack.
Mastering the walk is one of the most important activities for the owner to successfully achieve in order to develop the role of leader of the pack. For example, the owner should always be the first one to walk out the door and the dog should walk beside or behind the owner while on walks. The owner should exert a calm, assertive energy and set boundaries that are consistently enforced.
Millan believes dogs need exercise, discipline and affection in order to be healthy, well balanced dogs. When these three needs are not being met, the result is a poorly behaved dog.
Dog Psychology Center
Cesar Millan’s Dog Psychology Center offers six week training clinics, meeting once a week. Classes are intended to help achieve balance and harmony in a dog’s life and are offered both in the morning and in the evening. These classes are taught by a team of Cesar Millan’s trainers and range from mastering the walk, socializing the dog, swimming, herding, to search and rescue and more. There is a training class for all dogs, regardless of age, sociability and experience. Each six week clinic costs $400.

Not everyone can afford to pay for Millan’s training clinics, not to mention that the location is not convenient for everyone. Luckily, one can benefit and learn Cesar Millan dog trainer skills and tips from his product line of dog training books and DVD’s.
