Cesar Millan Wells Fargo Center for the Performing Arts “Cesar Millan will reveal the secrets of happier, healthier relationships between humans and their canine companions in his exciting live show. Joined by his famous four-legged companion, Junior, Cesar will share his philosophies and methods, then present examples via live demonstrations with multiple dogs.”

More than just a one way presentation, the audience will have the opportunity to ask Cesar questions during a Q&A session. Cesar Millan believes that for a change to take place in a dog, many times the real change needs to take place in the pet owner first and in following his plan, Cesar’s Way, harmony and balance will be brought to your life as well as your dog’s. See the star of Nat Geo WILD’s brand new series “Leader of the Pack” and the original host of National Geographic’s “Dog Whisperer” perform his dog training techniques, LIVE!
