Yes, he's a walking brand, and no, his techniques don't inspire everyone, but this series strives to create a more peaceful "pack," which means that the humans are getting the Dog Whisperer treatment too. In Cesar Millan: Better Human, Better Dog, participants are brought to the "Dog Psychology Center," in the hills above Los Angeles to access the resources Cesar Millan has rounded up. This includes training with other breeds of animals like sheep, llamas, and ponies, or to get help from expert service-dog trainers. Cesar gets people on the proverbial therapist's couch too, talking with them about their feelings, their relationship challenges, even their health history.
It's refreshing to see the man behind the myth be challenged by very difficult situations, like dogs who have totally forgotten their doggy instincts, or a participant who has a brain tumor and needs his dog to be trained as a service dog to help him if he has a seizure. This show boasts a variety of stories and circumstances, dramatic family situations, and both human and canine successes, which kids and adults can enjoy together.
