In this live dog demo, Cesar Millan works with Tony, an overly excited dog who jumps and pulls on the leash when he meets new people. Using Tony's nose and sense of smell, Cesar works to teach Tony calm energy and the right behavior!

    1. Since my dog went blind, I learned quickly how important is his nose ! I feed him sometimes by throwing his kibble from the bowl onto the floor to give him something to find. I hide treats for him at treat time and tell him to “find”. I clearly see how defined his nose is, when a friend is on the next street over , he picks up that scent , gets excited and pulls to get to the friend. I always think he would have made a great search and rescue dog.

  1. you are an example of a positive human being. love your work, series and treatment of everyting. stay as you are, cesar.

    1. @nick g You must be one of those haters or maybe just a moron by nature. I still don’t understand why people watch Cesar if they envy the guy so much.

    2. Love this guy. I have learnt so much from watching him and understanding that dogs ha e a totally different psychology from us humans. Once you “get it” training is easy. Thank you Cesar for training ME!!

  2. wow Cesar this was incredible thank you for all your knowledge and sharing it with us/ God Bless you and your family

    1. In my early twenties.. I had a few dogs and always struggled trying to train / teach them…. Into my later twenties I watched Cesar millan for, approximately 5 years. As soon as I started watching him I knew this guy was the real thing! He understands the behavior of dogs! So basically what I’m trying to say since my later twenties. I have really taken everything I’ve seen Caesar talk about and explain how to interact with dogs, as a Wolfpack ranking. Over the past 5 years we have bought two new dogs in our home and with is advice I have done very well!

  3. Cesar, thanks for bringing awareness and teaching other countries about dog psychology. What you did with Troy has helped me understand my dog better. Thank you!

  4. Wonderful! I am so happy you are back Cesar with your awesome team ☺️☺️☺️☺️☺️🐶🐶🐶🐶🐶🎥🎙💡

  5. Thanks Cesar, i believe we need more video like this to educate people. A lot of dog owners dont put enough time to understand dogs or even respect their breed.

    1. Understatement of the week. Thank you. And I took 3 through CGC certification and handled scores in shelters and adoption events over decades.

    1. I have a 9 year old Doberman that I have had since he was 4 months old. Hands down the most intelligent breed I have ever worked with.

    2. @Tania This is beautuful. I understand so much how much you miss your lovely Lady. I have 5 dogs right now, all about the same age, all rescue dogs. I am dreading the day when I have to part ways. It will literally finish me. Dogs – we do not deserve them. Thank you for your post.

    3. We’ve got a 1.5 year old blue nose pitty mix who is highly protective of our family and gets vicious when we try to introduce her to new people. Even in a neutral setting. Really frustrating as we failed as owners to keep her socially developing during covid and all the public restrictions during that time.

  6. You need to do a series of “how to”s for personal dog owners. Useful, packaged lessons that demonstrate an important principle.

    1. I’m just such a huge fan of his and have been for over a decade, using his techniques to train a few dogs myself. Hell, his methods made me better with PEOPLE.

  7. Okay, but how does one teach ME to remain calm when I see a dog?!

    Edit: please understand that this was a joke. Im not sure why everyone took this seriously. I just love dogs very much and they make me happy lol.

    1. The reason folks took it seriously is bc that’s what Cesar’s methods are all ABOUT–Teaching human dog owners how to be aware of their own energy, and how to control their own energy. So although you meant it as a joke, in actuality it is a very good question, and one that Cesar would tend to want to address.

  8. I’ve watched most of Cesar Millan’s shows on TV and feel that animal rights activists need to learn about what he actually did in all those shows. Each show was a milestone in the fight for animal rights, as he created balanced, happy behavior in dog after dog after dog using principles drawn from meditation and a deep understanding of dog psychology and behavior.

    1. @Hella Bella this may sound pretty harsh and I really don’t mean it literally but I wish some of those animal rights activist would just take one of those aggressive dogs that a human caused to their home without no training and just see how long their fingers last . Or lips when the dog yanks out every bone or tooth from their head

    2. @Chris Padilla That would be the owners fault a police or anyone else under attack should NOT have to go to Dog training school. hold the owners responsible! ! This makes me wonder are you a responsible animal owner?

  9. Mate, from the UK and from the heart; you’ve had so much unjustified negative press over the years it’s saddening. People love to hate. That’s the reality. You are and always will be a gentleman and a “legend”. Keep doing what you do because the non-haters appreciate genius. Moreover they love genius ideas and techniques “explained” in simple terms. Keep doing what you do and keep safe.

  10. Love you Cesar! You changed my life when I got two dogs thirteen yrs ago. I followed your teachings of exercise, discipline, affection in that order. I have lost my two best hiking buddies a couple months ago but just wanted to say thanks. God bless you!
