What to Expect

Cesar Millan personally brings his exceptional insights into dog behavior to a hands-on training course ideal for dog owners and trainers alike.

In this five-day program, you will learn the subtle yet powerful physical and psychological language of canines and how to use it to build balanced relationships. You’ll discover how to address and resolve problem behaviors, achieve calm submission and share these skills with friends, family and clients. It’s immensely practical yet filled with the values and ideas that made Cesar the world’s most renowned dog behaviorist.

Here’s an example of some areas Cesar will focus on.

  • The Four Worlds
  • The Building Blocks of Cesar’s Philosophy
  • The nature of Energy – and Dog Energy States
  • The differences between how dogs and humans experience the world

Dogs must be approved before attending class with you
