Famed dog trainer Cesar Millan was born in rural Culiacan, Mexico. Spending much of his childhood on his grandfather’s farm in a nearby town, he observed the behavior of the many dogs on the farm and dreamed of becoming the world’s best dog trainer. When he was 21, he moved to California and landed a job grooming dogs, soon gaining a reputation for his calming effect on even the most difficult dogs. He was surprised how troubled so many of the dogs he encountered seemed to be, and how disconnected Americans seemed to be from nature and the world around them. He began to think he should redirect his dream to become a rehabilitator of dogs and a trainer of humans.
This spring and summer, as humans and dogs alike enjoy time in the great outdoors, Cesar Millan warns of the dangers fleas and ticks may pose to dogs, and urges dog owners to visit their veterinarians to be informed about flea and tick control as we head into the warmer seasons. Problems caused by these blood-sucking parasites can include mild to severe itching, infections, and skin sores. Cesar has built a career on being tuned into what dogs are really going through, and can personally attest to the importance of keeping our furry friends protected from fleas and ticks as we roll into warmer months.
