This Summer, National Geographic’s latest series “Cesar Millan: Better Human Better Dog” is being released on the National Geographic and Nat Geo Wild channels, along with being released on Disney+ in the United States.
In the new series, Cesar opens the gates to the famed Dog Psychology Center, his California ranch retreat for dogs. Here he transforms canines—and families—one case at a time, working to make the world a better place. With updated philosophies, new techniques and family support, Cesar tackles some of the most demanding cases of his career.
Transformations include cases like Goliath, a dog that was once so unpredictably aggressive he blocked paramedics from entering his home during a family emergency. He is now a medical companion animal, able to seek assistance when his owner suffers a seizure. Also, follow Insta-famous Ducky the Yorkie as he em‘barks’ on a journey with Cesar to gain comfort and composure with his second owner so that the newlyweds can finally pursue their dreams of starting a family. A Rottweiler named Kuma is also transformed from an unstable liability to a calm, confident member of a family with five young children. To complement his efforts, Cesar’s own exotic animal ‘paw’sonal assistants pitch in to assist in the rehabilitation process—including llamas, a parrot and a miniature horse—all full-time residents of the Dog Psychology Center.
This all-new 10-part series will have two episodes a week released, premiering on July 30 2021 at 9/8c on National Geographic and simulcast on Nat Geo WILD. Episodes will also be available to stream on Disney+ each Wednesday, starting August 4th.
