A Hyper-Active Miniature Doberman Pinscher and a Fearful Pit Bull
Season 1 | Episode 17 | Caper and Julius
Daniela and Chad adopted Caper, a miniature Doberman Pinscher, from a rescue organization, only to find that she had never been trained, doing whatever she wants to do, whenever she wants to do it. Her weird behaviors include running away to chase balls, sitting in her safety bed for only a few seconds at a time, running like mad around the backyard in a game with the cat, and barking at you to get a ball. Daniela doesn’t like to yell at Caper, but finds herself getting stressed out when she cannot control her. Cesar’s help will hopefully give Daniela peace of mind.
Julius is a four-year-old Pit Bull mix that was abandoned in a field when he was about five weeks old. He was discovered about a week later covered with mange, cold and wet. Julius is frightened of everything, even a leaf flying across the yard. He hates to go outside. He is terrified of strangers and excessively protective of the house and the car.
Caper and Julius are two dogs with unacceptable social skills. Whether it’s running wild or cowering in fear, Cesar Millan needs to convince their owners that this behavior can be overcome. Can his calm assertive approach work for these misfit mutts?
