Oh, it’s not just because Cesar Millan is adorable, or that his show has helped me get Junebug under some semblance of control when out walking.
It’s because he talks completely unabashedly about empowering women.
Cesar’s whole focus is on dealing with dogs’ behavioral issues by making the human in the human-dog relationship the pack leader. And that means putting all humans in the home in a dominant position vis-a-vis the dogs. There have been many times when he has had to make a special effort to convince a male-female couple that both of them need to be dominant, and works with the woman to be sure that she asserts herself. And he does use the term “empowerment,” which is frankly a little shocking coming from a man. Even if he does talk a lot about energy and balance.
Plus, he’s utterly unflappable in the face of owners with more money than sense.
