On Sunday, July 14th 2013 , Cesar Millan stepped onstage along with his pitbull, 'Junior' at the Westbury NYCB Theatre located in Long Island NY - to a welcoming audience as they cheered him on.
He was wearing a puffy cream parka, as he demonstrated how dog walkers in America wear a vest that have everything in it so they are well equipped with toys and treats , in other words, gears to please their unruly canine.
This in turn, showing a sign of weakness on behalf of mankind and reinforcing the dog’s mischief.
Cesar went on to explain that the American society humanize our pets and we create instability and stress not
allowing our fury creatures to trust us. This metamorphoses the dog to its natural way of being and instinct takes
over to take control of leadership, not allowing his/her owner be the leader of the pack.
Cesar Millan is clearly the guru in the world of dogs and dog lovers. He captivated his audience with a keen sense of humor.
His side kick, junior would walk around the stage starring at individuals in the audience, sniffing a few people, rolling over on his back taking the focus off of Cesar, as Cesar signals the audience to redirect their attention back to him.
The show was hilarious and witty, laugh out loud hysterically funny. Whether Cesar Millan was imitating a yapping Chiwawa or lying on the floor demonstrating a cat giving itself a bath, he had the crowd in tears with laughter.
He’s a natural storyteller, and has an uncanny way of demonstrating animal behavior. He pointed out mistakes humans make as pet owners. He explains that it is the people who need the training not the dog, as the dogs get rehabilitated.
In his show, Cesar jokes about his immigration status – he goes on to explain how he came to California at the age 21. He joked that Mexicans trying to cross the border invented the first agility courses. Nevertheless, he was open and honest (qualities he stresses in training) and he was thoroughly entertaining.
The program was educational, informative and almost a comical one man act. He also made a lot of great points, talking about a dog owner’s need to be a stable leader, to be calm, to meet the dog’s needs of body, mind and heart, to understand how our own behavior can lead to anxiety and instability.
Three rules of thumb that can cause a dog to have anxiety: Incompatiable energy, Lack of fulfillment, and the owner's energy.
He said, “Dogs in Mexico are skinny but they don’t have psychological problems. Dogs in America are chunkyand….(As he paused for a few seconds) well I have a tv show,”
After a brief intermission, Cesar welcomes a few dogs: 'Denver', 'Brazil' to name a couple onto the stage, from the North Shore Animal League America, the largest “no Kill” animal shelter in America, located in Port Washington, NY.
He demonstrated how to correct dog behavior in a split of a second - "Ahhh, Ooh Wow'ing" the crowd. Cesar concludes, " There's no editing here, people." as the onlookers giggle.
Cesar Millian has also partnered up with the North Shore Animal League , and he’s a supporter of No kill animal shelters nationwide.
Cesar Millan is definitely a must see show when he's in your area. Every tax payer needs to hear Cesar's message and the purpose of his effortless contribution to all the animals in shelters nationwide.
"Around the world 600 million dogs die every year," "We spend 450 million dollars to euthanize unwanted dogs, why not take that money and spend 450 million dollars on keeping them alive?!"
Cesar Millan may be the leader of a pack, but he is definitely supported by his production crew who are the utmost professional individuals and they are pleasant and personable. It is obvious that these are dog people. Loving and lovable.
