Cesar Milan, the Mexican-American dog trainer, returns to our screens for his new show Cesar Millan: Better man, better dog. With an impressive 25 years of experience in the industry, Cesar transforms turbulent dogs into majestic animals. It will be broadcast on July 30th via National Geographic, Nat Geo Wild, and is also available for streaming Disney +. This is the first time Cesar has repeated his role as a dog trainer since his last Emmy-nominated show Dog Whisperer with Cesar Millan.
What can we expect
The series airs in ten episodes, with Cesar going out of his way to tame rowdy pets and offer these weary owners his much-needed help. The show brings a lot of anticipation. It’s been five years since Cesar did such a show and a lot has changed since then.
The pandemic has resulted in an unprecedented increase in the number of pet owners. According to official statistics, some cities have seen the number of animals adopted have increased by 90%. But with companionship and happiness, as with any other type of bond, there is a fine line between respect and tolerance.
It’s a lot more than a simple reality show. Many of the dogs featured in the episodes come from difficult backgrounds. They may have been picked up from an emergency shelter at the time after being violently mistreated by unscrupulous owners. That’s why we’re going to see Cesar rehabilitate these furry friends at the Dog Psychology Center, California.
And here’s a taste of what’s to come. One of these cases involves a dog named Goliath. What started out as an aggressive and hostile animal, Cesar manages to transform him into a social being who can come to the aid of his owner who suffers from unsuspecting seizures.
In another case, we come across Ducky. The latter has just moved in with his new (second) owners, but is struggling to forge a friendship. Since the family desperately wants to welcome him into the family, Cesar has to pull out all the stops. But just when you thought that’s enough to whet your appetite, Kuma (a Rottweiler) transforms from a fugitive dog into an adorable dog who is comfortable with five kids.
Meanwhile, Cesar’s exotic animals (llamas, a parrot, and a horse) help aid Kuma’s transition. So what are you waiting for; a great show for the family. If you like what you’ve read, check out the trailer below! Please let us know your opinion in the comment area.
