Each year, millions of dogs across the world are abandoned due to seemingly insurmountable behavior issues, leaving them destined for lifelong incarceration or even destruction. What’s a difficult dog to do? Luckily, one very special human is looking out for them. A man known around the world for his incredible ability to rehabilitate dogs and train the humans who want to love them. A man with a remarkable instinct for understanding dogs.
That man is world-renowned dog behaviorist Cesar Millan, who is combating the global issue of canine abandonment and giving “unadoptable” dogs a second chance at life in his Nat Geo WILD series “Leader of the Pack.” But Millan’s biggest challenge may be training the candidates who are vying for a chance to give these dogs a new lease on life.
As Cesar explains it, “Leader of the Pack” has a mission… to prevent the deaths of so many innocent dogs. My goal with this show is to awaken the world to how many dogs are euthanized in one year, how we kill them and how the world really treats what we call man’s best friend. By recognizing what is really happening around the world, we can save the lives of millions of dogs by respecting their love.”
To raise awareness about rescuing, rehabilitation and rehoming, Millan goes through a journey to show the difficult situation of rescued dogs and to demonstrate that it’s not about the breed, age, size or the backstory of the dog; it´s about the human who handles the dog.
