Dog Whis­perer with Ce­sar Mi­lan

The Weekend Australian - Review - - Television -

Wed­nes­day, 7.30pm, Bio I strug­gle to over­come videos on YouTube in which Ce­sar Mi­lan is bit­ten hard by the very crea­tures he claims to un­der­stand so well. Well, you know what they say, never work with an­i­mals or chil­dren. No mat­ter how well you whis­per to them, dogs are ba­si­cally just dumb an­i­mals, driven by in­stinct and some­times by neu­rotic in­se­cu­rity. Still, Mi­lan is in a sev­enth sea­son of his show, so he must be do­ing some­thing right. Tonight the dog whis­perer takes on some se­ri­ously snappy bulldogs that are mak­ing their own­ers’ lives hell. Triath­lete Bill Leit­ner con­sid­ers him­self a supremely con­fi­dent in­di­vid­ual. How­ever, hav­ing put up with bull­dog Hugo for years, he feels as if he is on the verge of post-trau­matic stress syn­drome. Hugo is a hor­ror. Snarling at guests, lung­ing at kids and clamp­ing his huge jaws down on Bill’s foot or on a neigh­bour’s der­riere when­ever he has a mind to, Hugo ap­pears to be an in­tractable bully. En­ter the dog whis­perer with his eerie blend of Latin magic and dog psychology. Can he cure Hugo? I bet the an­swer sur­prises you.
