Event-goers will learn Cesar Millan’s amazing techniques including:

·         How we humanize dogs and how this “people” behavior impacts “dog” behavior

·         The different levels of energy and how they influence the dog’s personality

·         Why providing rules, boundaries, and limitations is important

·         What dog fulfillment is and how we can provide balance by following simple guidelines

·         Cesar’s leash techniques, and when and where to apply them

Proceeds from both events will benefit The Millan Foundation to rescue, rehabilitate, and rehome abused and abandoned dogs.

Cesar Millan as Dog Whisperer is Favorite TV Dog Show

If you haven’t seen the show Dog Whisperer you are really missing out.  This is one of the best shows on TV.  Dog behaviorist, Cesar Millan, has a solution for any dog problem you could possibly need to know about.  We watch in awe as Cesar gets dogs to pay attention almost immediately and helps the owners of these dogs to make them realize that they are the leaders of their pack … not the dog.

THE CESAR AND ILUSION MILLAN FOUNDATION

Cesar Millan, star of the hit series Dog Whisperer, and his wife Ilusion Millan have established THE CESAR AND ILUSION MILLAN FOUNDATION, a national, non-profit organization designed to aid and support the rescue, rehabilitation, and placement of abused and abandoned dogs.

“The Foundation, which has long been a dream of ours, is intended to benefit needy shelters and rescue organizations throughout the United States. Our many years of experience in the rehabilitation of dogs of every breed and background has taught us that most animals can make excellent companions, and all that many of them need is the proper care and a second chance.”  … Cesar & Ilusion Milan

Okay, I Have to Admit it – New York Has Some Cool Dogs!

Dog-w-Hat2

So there, I’ve said it.  My NY buddy lives in NY right next to Central Park and he is one lucky dog!  He sends me photos all the time of the cool dogs, the hip dogs and the most pampered dogs.  Really, some of those dogs have the life.  They don’t even have to do the walking … they get pushed around in carts and ride in bicycle baskets.  Don’t even have to start panting to cool off.

Then there’s this guy who wears his own sunglasses and sun visor.  I mean, what’s up with that?  Mik would never let me walk around like this, much less in NYC!  But then, I guess I have to remember that there are some real celeb dogs and their owners walking around the park there.  Have you seen any stars in your hometown lately?

Bo Makes His First Appearance at the White House as Top Dog

bo-the-dog2

Sasha and Malia must be so Happy!  They now have their promised dog and the White House will now be a much more fun place to be.   I haven’t met any Portugese Waterdogs myself but I hear they are pretty happy around humans.   Hey, maybe I will get an invite to the White House by Bo, himself, once he gets the run of the place.

Yeah, and I hear that the Prez won’t let Bo sleep in the main bed … we’ll see how that goes, so stay tuned.   But Doggietown is happy to hear about Bo and his nice new family.  Biscuits to you buddy!

Let us know what you think about Bo, will ya?

The Lucky Dog Radio Show

This show is broadcast on Wednesday evenings … at 10 pm Eastern time, earlier for other time zones.  I can already tell, this will be one of my favorite shows.  It says interviews … do you think they mean they interview dogs??
