Cesar Millan Biography
Cesar Millan born César Felipe Millán Favela is a Mexican-American dog trainer with over 25 years of canine experience. He is widely known for his Emmy-nominated television series Dog Whisperer with Cesar Millan, which was produced from 2004 to 2012 and is broadcast in more than 80 countries worldwide.
Millan is a best-selling author from the New York Times with his own line of dog products and instructional DVDs. Prior to the Dog Whisperer series, Millan focused on severe aggressive dog rehabilitation and founded a rehabilitation complex, the Dog Psychology Center, in South Los Angeles (2002–2008). The Dog Psychology Center moved to California’s Santa Clarita in 2009. At the Country Inn Pet Resort in Davie, Florida, near Fort Lauderdale, Millan also opened an East Coast clinic.
Millan’s first three books, including Cesar’s Way, were all made best sellers of the New York Times, sold two million copies cumulatively in the United States, and are available in 14 other countries. In 2009, Millan introduced a monthly magazine in conjunction with IMG, also called Cesar’s Way, with the Wall Street Journal reporting that half of American consumers recognized Millan at that time. Following the issue of November / December 2014, the magazine ceased publication.
He founded the Millan Foundation with Ilusión Millan, his former wife–later renamed the Cesar Millan Foundation and now called the Cesar Millan PACK Project. The foundation was set up to provide financial support to animal shelters and organizations involved in the rescue, rehabilitation and re-homingof abused and abandoned animals, and to fund spay / neuter programs to help reduce overpopulation of dogs. It aims to “improve dogs and people’s health, happiness, and harmony— while helping both species learn from and support each other.” The Foundation worked with Yale University, among other projects, to create a child curriculum based on its work.

Millan then set up the Dog Psychology Center in South Los Angeles, a two-acre (0.81 ha) facility specializing in working with large breed dogs.
Millan worked with MPH Entertainment, Inc. in 2002 to develop a television pilot for Dog Whisperer, a reality television series that follows Millan as he works in the field of dog rehabilitation, following a profile in the Los Angeles Times.

Cesar Millan Puppy Training
They’re cute and cuddly lovable little balls of fur — but they can be more difficult to handle than adult dogs. “Puppy training” is our number one category for questions at Cesar’s Way. That’s why Cesar decided to offer his top ten Puppy Tips, and more.
- Puppy proof your home before arrival! Hide electrical cords and cables, keep trash tightly closed, put child-proof latches on cupboards and closets, secure cleaning supplies. Keep clothes that smell like you picked up and secured in a hamper, and keep dangerous things in the bathroom secured — razors, perfumes, cotton balls, soap, etc… and keep the toilet lid down at all times.
- Bringing a puppy home: take her on a walk to tire her out first; invite her into the home after you still on leash, and establish it as your territory as you introduce her to it.
- Everyone remain calm, and practice “no touch, no talk, no eye contact” during the introduction. Let her off leash when you get to the place where she’ll sleep. This tells her “this spot is yours.”
- Establish a regular schedule for walks, feeding, and playtime, and stick to it. Make sure your puppy gets potty time every two to four hours at first, and five to thirty minutes after eating, which is when she’ll have to naturally go.
- Never discipline your puppy for an accident in the house or misbehavior that you didn’t catch her doing. She won’t make the association and you’ll just confuse her. Stay calm and clean up.
- Puppies use their mouths when they play; we have to teach them what’s appropriate and what isn’t when it comes to mouthing and biting. Gentle play continues. Rough play stops and gets a puppy time-out.
- If you don’t want the puppy mouthing people at all, redirect her before her mouth makes contact by using a chewy toy or a treat and get her to bite onto that instead.
- Establish a relationship with the vet right away. If you already have one you like and trust, great. If not, find one as soon as possible to start your puppy on a lifetime of good health.
- Consider investing in canine health insurance, especially while your puppy is young and premiums are lower. This can cover things like routine visits, vaccinations, and a lot of the major cost of surgeries, and make it much easier to maintain your pup’s health.
- Be patient! Remember that puppies are just learning the rules, boundaries, and limitations, and it can take them a few tries to get it right. A failure today is not a failure forever, so don’t get frustrated. Do stay calm and consistent and your puppy will get it eventually.

Cesar Millan Quotes
Cesar Millan Live!
“Cesar Millan Live!” is an international dog training lecture and stage performance where Millan presents his techniques and philosophy in front of a live audience from his television shows and books. The show consists of half a lecture and half a demonstration with local shelter dogs, using his pack-leader training techniques to alter negative behavior.
Cesar Millan Dog Training Technique
Millan’s work focuses on using what he calls “calm-assertive energy” to handle a dog. He believes dog owners should set up their role as leaders of the calm-assertive pack. In that order, dogs have three primary needs, according to Millan: exercise, discipline, and affection. In other words, it is the responsibility of the owner to fulfill the energy level requirements of the dog through challenging exercise; then to provide clearly communicated rules, boundaries and limitations; and finally, to give affection. According to Millan, giving a lot of affection with very little exercise and even less discipline is a common pitfall for American dog owners. He encourages owners to understand the effect their own attitudes, internal emotions and physical postures have on a dog’s behavior, counseling owners to hold strong posture (i.e., shoulders high and chest forward) and to project energy that is calm-assertive.
Millan’s television programs focus on dog rehabilitation while Millan simultaneously educates dog owners in his philosophy of dog-handling. Typically, conversations with owners revolve around his philosophy: that healthy, balanced dogs require strong “pack leadership” from their owners, while Millan shows how owners with their dogs can achieve and maintain a leadership role. In some cases, for an extended period of more intensive rehabilitation, Millan takes dogs with severe behavioral problems to his Dog Psychology Center.
The programs are not intended as a dog training guide, and each episode contains repeated warnings that viewers should not try the behavior modification techniques at home without the guidance of a professional.
While working with a dog, Millan often uses vocal marks such as touch, gestures, and body language to communicate with dogs rather than speech or the dog’s name. Millan encourages owners to create their own unique sound that works for them. He believes that dogs sense, understand, and respond to a person’s energy more easily than their speech.
Millan has said, “My goal in rehabilitating dogs and training people is to create balanced relationships between humans and canines.” In 2009, The New York Times attributed Millan’s success to his personal sense of balance, describing this as “a sort of über-balanced mien”
