Adopting a dog is only the beginning… Unfortunately, many adoptions fail within the first two weeks when a dog’s energy and behavior do not match the new family’s expectations. This leads to dogs being returned to shelters, then being labeled as unadoptable for quite preventable reasons.
Now, it’s Cesar to the rescue as he helps adopting families learn how to raise the perfect dog in his special on NatGeo WILD, “Doggie Nightmares.” In it, he follows two households as they take the giant leap of adopting a new dog, and walks them through the process to guide them in the right direction.
Some of the revelations will shock you and some will come as no surprise, but will Cesar be able to help these families integrate their new dogs into the pack? Can he turn doggie nightmares into lifelong bonds, or are some relationships just not meant to be? You’ll find out as the owners decide to either cement the adoption or hand Cesar the leash and walk away.
“Every dog can be an amazing companion for a human,” Cesar explains. “I just need to find that human for that dog.” See whether Cesar can do it in “Doggie Nightmares.”
