'Dog whisperer' Cesar Millan to visit Abbotsford
Dog behaviour expert Cesar Millan comes to Abbotsford in November as part of his Canadian tour, sharing his secrets on how to build happier, healthier relationships between humans and their canine companions.
Millan visits the Abbotsford Entertainment and Sports Centre (33800 King Rd.) on Tuesday, Nov. 6 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets go on sale Friday, July 20 at 10 a.m.
The live "Trust Your Instincts" seminar features lessons and insights from Millan, including: how to read a dog's body language, how to tune into a dog's instincts and energy, understanding a dog's instinctual world, and identifying triggers and learning to recognize true aggression.
Millan, host of the hit TV series "Dog Whisperer with Cesar Millan," says his tour will give dog owners the tools to recognize how to create an environment of balance and calm for dogs.
"A dog's world is one of instincts. This world is very different from the human world, which is fast-paced, full of stress and ultimately creates unbalance in dogs. The instinctual world is one of energy, harmony and calmness," Millan says.
Born and raised in Mexico, Cesar came to America to pursue his dream of becoming the greatest dog trainer in the world.
Through years of observation, awareness and firsthand experience, Cesar developed his own formulas to keep dogs balanced, calm, and submissive. Cesar does not "train" dogs in the sense of teaching them commands like "sit," "stay," and "heel"'; he rehabilitates unbalanced dogs and helps "re-train" their owners to better understand how to see the world through a dog's eyes.
"I hope that through understanding the world dogs live in, people will transform their dogs and maybe a bit of themselves at the same time," he says.
Dogs, except for approved service dogs, are not allowed at the seminar. Ticket and tour information is available online at cesarmillanlive.com.
