CESAR MILLAN HAS ONE DREAM to share the knowledge with which he was born with the rest of the world. He is The Dog Whisperer and is out to show dogs (and their owners!) a thing or two.

From crazy Chihuahuas to rowdy Retrievers, Cesar Millan is the person who can turn even the most aggressive, frightened, lazy, jealous, disturbed and difficult dog into a loving and obedient friend. The key to his amazing success is often the behaviour of the owners themselves.

Without any previous knowledge of the mini monster he is about to meet, Cesar enters the homes of dog owners and documents the remarkable transformation that takes place under his calm but firm guidance as he "rehabilitates dogs and trains people".

Among his conquests is a former rescue West Highland White terrier called Percy, who hated being touched on the rear quarters and became demented when the mail arrived. Cesar showed owner Diane how to make Percy proud of himself and to have more control over him by using a high leash.

Rescue dogs might suffer psychological problems but Cesar is there to correct their behaviour. "Take your new dog for a long, one-hour plus, walk to connect with the dog and to get to know each other," he advises.

Retriever-Chow cross Stewart is nervous, barks incessantly and is afraid of children. She was adopted from the Pound and Cesar diagnosed a low self-esteem. Bringing in his own children — ten-year-old Andre and five-year-old Calvin — to introduce to the dog, Cesar showed Stewart that children are part of the group.

Cesar also deals with neurotic Dalmatian Lucy; a yellow Labrador called Queen Elizabeth Daisy and Boyfriend — who was interfering with owner Anita's romance. He also deals with the three-year-old Alfie, a Bulldog belonging to actress and television host Daisy Fuentes and who has become over-protective and snappy.

"Dog psychology," says Cesar, "is seeing the world from their point of view." The Dog Whisperer With Cesar Millan makes fascinating watching and — who knows? — you might just find that, with the benefit of Cesar Millan's advice, your Desperate Dobermann is Docile after all!

Now, with the release of The Dog Whisperer With Cesar Millan The Complete First Season, all of his greatest triumphs from the first season of his smash-hit show on Sky TV are available to own on DVD which, courtesy of DNC Entertainment, will come bounding out on 6 April, 2009.
