Cesar Millan’s background
In December of 1990, 21-year-old Cesar Millan crossed the border from Mexico into California. He lived on the streets of San Diego, landed a job grooming dogs, and soon gained a reputation for his calming effect on even the most difficult cases. With a few dollars in his pocket, he moved north to Los Angeles and took a job washing cars.
With the money he saved, he started a freelance dog rehabilitation service, primarily offering his expertise with extreme cases. This led him to open his first Dog Psychology Center, which eventually became the current 43-acre site in the Santa Clarita Valley, now including a sheep herding area, air conditioned kennels, swimming pool, obstacle course, and hiking trails. The Dog Psychology Center is a featured location in many of Cesar’s TV shows, including “Cesar Millan’s Dog Nation.”
In addition to co-authoring seven books, Cesar has created numerous instructional DVDs and has brought his popular live shows “Cesar Millan LIVE!” and “Once Upon a Dog” to audiences around there world. Attendees learn how to apply his extensive knowledge of dog psychology and rehabilitation techniques.
In “Dog Nation,” he and his son Andre do more than just help people with their dogs. They bring us on an adventure to see the many, many ways in which dogs help us to learn, to love, to laugh, and to heal.
