I was born in Culiacán, Sinaloa, Mexico, and grew up working with animals on my grandfather's farm. Because of my natural way with dogs, they would follow me everywhere. Other kids would bully me and call me el perrero — “dog boy.”
I crossed the border into the US at 21, eventually getting a job as a dog groomer and walker. After the LA Times ran a profile of me, the guy walking thirty or forty
dogs off leash, a number of production companies approached me to develop a TV show. This eventually became “Dog Whisperer with Cesar Millan,”
which ran from 2004 until 2012.
I opened my Dog Psychology Center
in downtown LA in 1999. Today, the much larger DPC is located in the hills of Santa Clarita. In 2012, I began a training program for dog owners and trainers, "Training Cesar's Way." We offer two courses, the five-day" Fundamentals of Dog Behavior and Training I" which I personally teach. And we offer six-week "Training Clinics" at the DPC for those who live Los Angeles.
I started the Cesar Millan Foundation on Valentine’s Day, 2007, and it, too, continues to thrive. Our mission is to create and deliver community humane education programs and promote animal welfare by supporting the rescue, rehabilitation, and rehoming of abused and abandoned dogs, as well as by promoting spay and neuter programs world wide.
In January 2013, my new show “Leader of the Pack” premiered and my sixth book, “Cesar Millan’s Short Guide to a Happy Dog,” was published.
My newest series, "Cesar 911
" premiered on March 7, 2014 on Nat Geo WILD and became the network's second-highest rated series in history. I'm currently in production for season two of "Cesar 911".
I hope that I can be an inspiration to everyone out there who is trying to live their dream.
