Cesar Milan 911
They bark incessantly. They nip at your fingers and toes. They growl and bare their teeth. They annoy friends and fellow dog walkers. And sometimes they scare the ones you love. When the neighborhood has literally gone to the dogs, someone needs to pick up the phone and dial Cesar 911
Cesar Millan is back, and this time he’s bringing his unmatched canine abilities to communities terrorized by unruly hounds. His new series, Cesar 911, premieres Friday, March 7, at 9PM ET/PT on Nat Geo Mundo as well as Nat Geo WILD. The series also premieres internationally on Nat Geo WILD as Cesar to the Rescue in April.
Each week, Cesar travels to a new neighborhood in desperate need of his help. He is summoned by co-workers, relatives, friends and neighbors who “blow the whistle” on a four-legged menace that has turned their lives upside down. Cesar witnesses firsthand how the dogs wreak havoc on the community sidewalk, dog parks … even restaurants and offices! Whether it’s a spoiled Chihuahua going wild in a family business or an aggressive mutt spreading fear throughout the neighborhood, Cesar uses his unparalleled expertise to bring balance to the dogs and the community.
In most instances, the owners unknowingly reinforce their dog’s problem behavior. Some treat their dogs like spoiled children, ignoring their bad habits or dismissing them as “not that bad.” Others show fear and hesitation when handling their dogs, allowing the dogs to gain the upper hand and “lead” their humans. In one instance, a couple’s relationship woes and the resulting anxiety and tension transfer directly to their dog and negatively affect his behavior.
When Cesar arrives in the neighborhood, he quickly evaluates the situation at hand and within moments begins to turn the situation around. He’s not a magician. His calm, assertive approach to rehabilitating problem dogs produces rapid results. But in many instances, rehabilitating the dog is not the hard part. Training the humans to be composed, confident pack leaders themselves is the tricky part.
Each episode of Cesar 911 will consist of two stories within one community. Cesar first meets with the whistle-blowers to get briefed on the situation. He then evaluates both the dogs and owners through impromptu visits to the businesses and neighborhood locations where the dogs display their problem behavior. At times, he can provide quick and effective training right on the street. In more serious situations, he must relocate the dogs to his Dog Psychology Center for more in-depth rehabilitation, or invite owners to his new Home Learning Annex to practice and improve upon their leadership skills in a controlled environment.
Cesar uses surveillance cameras after he works with the dogs and owners to track progress and ensure a lasting solution. The final test comes when all parties gather together at a central meeting place within the community; owners equipped with the knowledge and tools only Cesar can provide, and dogs ready to show off the new behaviors they have mastered. The transformations are inspiring, and the positive impacts on the affected communities are extraordinary. Once again, Cesar saves the day as only he can!
