July 7, 2012 marked the end of an era. It was the day the final episode of The Dog Whisperer aired. While Cesar Milan was sad to see the show come to an end, he is happy about his new project. Leader of the Pack is a new, 12-part series, featuring Cesar Millan working with rescue dogs in Europe. The new show is a joint effort of Cesar Millan and Nat Geo Wild.
Leader of the Pack
This new show is filmed in Spain. Cesar Millan has a new facility there. The goal of the show is to bring attention to the plight of dogs who are abandoned and neglected. Leader of the Pack will feature Cesar working with these dogs to make them adoptable. He plans to use his proven training techniques of exercise, discipline and affection to prepare the unruly canines for life in a forever home.
All of the dogs will work with Cesar Millan at his new Dog Psychology Center in Spain. Once the dogs are ready for a new home, Millan will allow interested people to come travel to the facility. Potential adopters will have to pass Cesar’s tough assessment to see if they are a good choice for that dog. It is all about placing the right dog in the right situation.
This show is sure to continue the controversy over whether Cesar Millan’s training techniques are abusive or not. He has tremendous success with very aggressive dogs–including dogs other trainers gave up on. If his training looks extreme it is because he takes on extreme cases. Isn’t it better to have a strong trainer that can rehabilitate a dog than to have a dog euthanized because no one cared enough to save them.
