Dog Whisperer with Cesar Millan is a hit reality television series, having proved it's popularity by winning the 2010 People's Choice Award for Favorite Animal Show. The viewer joins Cesar Millan, America's best-loved dog expert, as he ventures into the homes of problem dogs and their frustrated owners. Cesar approaches his work with rehabilitating even the most aggressive dogs with his signature "calm-assertive" energy. This method allows him to channel the natural responses and needs of the dog, which in most cases can calm even the most fearful, anxious behavior. A big surprise of the show is that the dog owner receives as much of an education as the dog. By learning how to reinforce boundaries and show a confident attitude, the owner often recognizes what a huge affect their own emotions have on a dog's behavior.
