Cesar Millan turned from a refugee and illegal immigrant to an expat, a successful dog whisperer and entertainer. He is literally living the American Dream. When he went to the United States from Mexico in 1990, he had absolutely nothing and did not speak a word of English. It is pretty much the exact opposite now.
Millan will be at Arena Armeets in Sofia on March 23rd, 2017, but he won’t be hitting the stage alone. His four-legged, fellow pack members will be there too.
His new show is entitled “Once Upon a Dog”. It will be dedicated to an entire dog’s life, from its first day in a family until its passing. He will educate his audience about how to treat and train dogs, while delivering top-notch entertainment.
“How do I find the dog which best suits me?” is one of the questions he will get into. The humanization of dogs is another subject. Good! There seem to be too many people who force dogs into coats and treat them like babies.
Millan is an expert for the upbringing of dogs. His philosophy is based on trust, love and respect. He manages to rehabilitate aggressive dogs and to improve the relationship between doggy and human. He has also started two animal protection programmes, released a ton of books and DVDs, and he did a TV show.
The size of those halls he fills around the globe does reflect his popularity. Not just in Sofia, he will be performing in the biggest hall available.
At this stage, Cesar Millan has one problem. The animal protection activist is actually being investigated for animal cruelty in Los Angeles County. The reason: On his TV show “Cesar 911”, a pig was attacked by a dog, which was supposed to co-exist with that animal. Millan’s reaction: The Los Angeles Times quoted him saying “I do have a large group of fans and a small group of people who don’t agree with me. They are taking this the wrong way and blowing it way out of proportion.”
Cesar Millan “Once Upon a Dog”, Sofia, Bulgaria, Arena Armeets, Thursday, March 23rd, 2017. Tickets are still available, at Eventim, in several categories. The price tag: 79 to 149 Leva.
There is one thing Cesar Millan will probably not do. As far as we know, he will not visit Animal Rescue Sofia, where hundreds of dogs are waiting for adoption, and where unpaid volunteers are working like dogs. But he is a friend of all dogs.
Bienvenido a Bulgaria, paisano!
