Audition To Be On "Dog Whisperer"
June 2008 Issue
Cesar MillanGreetings,

June marks the beginning of summer, one of my favorite times of year! As a young boy in Mexico, it meant vacation time. After we moved to the city, we took trips back to the ranch. The whole family got together, which meant 20 to 30 people in one little house! It was so much fun enjoying good food and good company. Since there were no fans in the house, we spent a lot of time in the river to escape the heat.

Today I still seek out water when it's hot outside. Even a pile of mud will do for my pack! They love getting dirty and enjoy the relief it provides from the heat. Sometimes I take the dogs to the beach, or I pile the whole pack into the RV and find a lake with my boys and my wife.

To me, summer is about taking time with your entire pack - your kids, your spouse, your dogs, your friends, your parents, everyone! - to enjoy the sun, the shade, the walk, and the water. Take this opportunity to try out a new game or activity. Get the whole family involved! Remember to keep your dogs hydrated and safe from the heat.

Stay calm and assertive,

Cesar Millan

Sneak Peek: June Episode Premieres
On June 6th at 8 PM ET/PT, meet Shelley and her devil chihuahua Peanut! She recently moved in with her mother, sister, brother-in-law, and their two children, as well as two dogs and a cat, but Peanut doesn't get along with anyone! Can Cesar restore the peace in this household? And next, Wes Murphy left his high-paying corporate job to follow his heart and start a pet grooming business. Cesar helps him with some of his more troublesome canine clients.

Then, June 13th, Brian and Patricia see the potential for sweetness in their highly-intelligent border collie, but they are at a loss when it comes to controlling Mateo's pungent personality. Cesar heads out to herd in this collie crisis. Next: all James wanted was a guard dog to protect his home, but now his German Shepherd Ali is the biggest threat to this peace officer's peace of mind. Can Cesar stop Ali from picking fights?

At two years old, Jake is so aggressive towards women that his owner Dana is unable to do the laundry since she has to bypass Jake to get to the washer and dryer. Tune in on June 20th to see if Cesar can remove the stains from this aggressive laundry dog. Also meet Kona who is a pro at jumping over the backyard fence and enjoying strolls around the neighborhood on her own. Cesar shows up to keep this fugitive out of harm's way!

Coming Soon: Sit and Stay the Cesar Way DVD!
In the fourth installment of the Mastering Leadership DVD series, learn the basics of dog training: how to teach a dog to sit, stay, come, heel, as well as teaching dogs to "leave it" when you don't want them to pick up something. Cesar works with two accomplished dog trainers, including Martin Deeley, executive director of the International Association of Canine Professionals, to demonstrate how proper training can work hand-in-hand with rehabilitation to help a dog and owner work through behavior issues.

Look For It This Fall!

Ask Cesar: Injured Dog Lunging At Cars
"My German shepherd tore her ACL last winter, and the vet has told us that she can't run anymore. I have a hard time keeping her steady when a car comes by, because she is a powerful dog. I am afraid that she will get hurt someday. What can I do to prevent her from lunging towards a car?"

Cesar and Ilusion Millan Foundation: Spay/Neuter Campaign
The Cesar and Ilusion Millan Foundation understands that Spay and Neutering is an important step toward saving the lives of many unfortunate animals. The statistics on stray dog and cat births and euthanization in the United States are overwhelming. In an effort to educate the public, the Foundation has created a spay and neuter campaign which provides veterinary clinics, humane education programs, schools, shelters, and rescue organizations with tools to spread the word.

To be considered for the program, please visit the website and complete our application form. The Cesar and Ilusion Millan Foundation will review the information and contact you regarding your eligibility. We will accommodate as many requests as we can. The cost of the educational material comes from generous donations made by contributors to the Foundation. Spay and Neutering is nothing to "Whisper" about!

Ask The Vet: Motion Sickness
"I have been working with my dog Molly to get her used to riding in our car. She shakes so badly and then throws up. I've given her Dramamine, and it doesn't do anything. I took her out today, and she threw up four times in the car. Will it help to give me some sort of tranquilizer and then ride her around until she realizes nothing bad is going to happen?"
