Cesar Millan Talks About His Life After ‘The Dog Whisperer’ [AUDIO]
Cesar Millan is famous for his ability to whisper sweet nothings into the floppy ears of dogs everywhere. In his show “Dog Whisperer with Cesar Millan” on National Geographic, Cesar helped many families discipline their troubled dogs. Cesar, who has about 20 dogs of his own, has worked with the NBA, the NFL, The White House, and even stars like Hillary Duff and Nicolas Cage.
Why Does Cesar Have Jada Pinkett-Smith To Thank For His Success?
“Jada Pinkett has a lot to do with [my success.] I did not speak any english and she sent a teacher to me at my first center in South Central Los Angeles, in the hood. You know, we met, and I told her I would like to have a TV show. She said ‘Cesar, before you get that, you need to speak english.’ And so she sent a teacher for a year, 3 times a week, 2 hours a day to help me.”
What’s Next After “Dog Whisperer’s” Final Season?
“I am done. I start traveling around the world, and I realize that many dogs die around the world. In America 4 to 5 million pets die every year, around the world 600 million. I felt that I had the responsibility to have a show about educating the world, so I created a new show about rescuing, rehabilitating, and re-homing. People are still going to see the rehabilitation which “Dog Whisperer” was all about. But at the same time, I want to create one big pact in the world where we all help a dog, dogs have helped human for many many years. I think it’s time for us to help them.
Cesar is passionate about helping families and dogs all over the world, and says of ‘problem’ dogs, “It’s not the dog or the breed, it’s the human behind the dog. The dog doesn’t require wealth or a house, the dog requires leadership. The dog requires fulfillment, exercise, discipline, and affection. It’s just like parenting.”
