Don't end up like me with a terrible Christmas mug shot. That's what happened my first Christmas with my new mom after she brought me home from the shelter. It was supposed to be a cute picture of me wearing a Santa hat but way back then I didn't know how to pose for pictures so this is what she ended up with:

2008 Cesar Millan Seminar in Atlanta, Georgia

As many of you know Kitai and I are big Cesar Millan fans. Cesar has helped to educate a lot of pet owners that their "problem" dog isn't usually the problem. Rather they themselves are often the catalyst for their badly behaving pooch by unwittingly rewarding bad behaviors, missing out on opportunities to minimize problem situations and by most often misunderstanding the body language and visual cues their dog is giving them.

Just over a year ago Cesar was here in the Bay Area hosting one of his seminars that had I not been getting married just a few days later I would have attended in a heartbeat! But for those of you who live in Georgia your opportunity to see, hear and meet Cesar Millan is just around the corner:

Cesar Millan Seminar
Saturday, December 6th, at 2 PM
Atlanta, GA - John A. Williams Theatre

at the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre
Premium tickets, which include a Meet-and-Greet with Cesar after the show, will be on sale for $250. Regular tickets range from $150 - $25, depending on how far they are from the stage.

IMO he has single handedly saved countless dogs from being taken to a shelter to be relinquished or put to sleep. By using his tv show The Dog Whisperer he has helped to show the general public that while some dogs may be aggressive within each breed group, not all of them are bad dogs. He shows that while there will unfortunately be some dogs that are out of control, most are not usually beyond help, and that the vast majority are great dogs that only need a more educated or experienced owner and the opportunity to become a wonderful pet and faithful companion.
