Cesar Millan, the world-renowned dog behaviorist, returns to the small screen in 2012 with a new show, “Cesar Millan’s Leader of the Pack.” This new series from National Geographic Wild follows Cesar as he travels across Europe on a mission to help abandoned and neglected dogs find their forever homes. Each episode features a new dog, from breeds such as Italian Greyhounds, Mastiffs, and Beagles, all with their own unique behavioral issues.

The show’s premise centers around the idea that every dog can be rehabilitated and find a loving home. Cesar sees it as his duty to save dogs from shelters and rescue organizations and help them become well-behaved pets. He argues that the answer to fixing many of the issues that dogs face comes from better communication between dog and owner. By spending time with the dogs and understanding their individual personalities and behaviors, Cesar helps to correct problematic behaviors like aggression, fearfulness, and anxiety.

One of the unique features of the show is that it features a contest in which three potential adopters compete to take home the dog Cesar has rehabilitated for the episode. Each adopter is chosen based on their compatibility with the dog and their ability to continue the training that Cesar has started. This element of the show adds a layer of excitement and anticipation as viewers watch to see which adopter will ultimately win.

Throughout each episode, Cesar provides valuable information on how to read dog body language and how to establish leadership in the human-dog relationship. In addition to offering practical training tips, Cesar also discusses the importance of promoting adoption and responsible pet ownership. His belief that dogs can teach people valuable life lessons permeates the show and adds a level of depth and compassion to each episode.

The show is beautifully produced and features stunning shots of the European countryside. Viewers get a sense of the unique cultural differences that exist across the continent when it comes to dogs and their owners. From Switzerland to Spain, Cesar encounters a variety of dogs and their owners, each with their own challenges and needs.

One episode features a Mastiff named Nero who was abandoned in a Spanish forest. Cesar works with Nero to help him overcome his fear of people and other dogs so that he can one day find a forever home. Another episode features an Italian Greyhound named Elvis who has severe separation anxiety. Cesar teaches Elvis’ owners how to help him feel comfortable when they’re away and how to establish clear boundaries so that Elvis can live a happy and anxiety-free life.

Overall, “Cesar Millan’s Leader of the Pack” is an entertaining, informative, and heartwarming show that celebrates the power of the human-dog bond. With Cesar’s expertise, each episode serves as an inspiring reminder that every dog deserves a chance to be loved and to find their forever home. The show is a must-watch for any dog lover or anyone who is interested in learning more about dog behavior and training.
