Is Your Dog Misbehaving? It’s Not The Dog, It’s You, Says Cesar Millan
And other tips we gleaned from chatting with the Dog Whisperer that will (bow)wow you.
When you ask Fido to sit, he jumps. Turn away for a minute and you’ll find him chewing your shoes like he hasn’t eaten in a week. When you come home, he greets you with a trail of poop and pee on your favourite carpet. Now, whose fault is it? Why, yes, you only have yourself to blame.
That's what we learnt when we caught up with Cesar Millan earlier this year when the 49-year-old celeb dog trainer was in town for the filming of Cesar’s Recruit: Asia Season 3, which will air from Sep 29 on Ch 5. In the reality series, eight contestants from the likes of Singapore, Hongkong and Taiwan will be mentored by Cesar, and duke it out in challenges to prove themselves the most worthy dog behavioural expert that the man himself would approve of.
Back to your woes with Fido. Every obsessive pawrent will tell you — or shove it in your face on their socials — about how much joy their pooch brings to their lives. But seldom do #petstagrams or Internet doggo memes paint a real picture of what it's like to have a canine family member in your home. Fret not. We've got some pawrenting tips from the Dog Whisperer himself.
