Whisper softly, and fetch a big stick…

The world’s foremost dog behavior specialist Cesar Millan makes a stop at the Palace Theatre in Albany at 7pm on Sunday. And while Millan is the reason that folks are buying the tickets, don’t be surprised if Junior, Millan’s three-year-old pit bull, steals the show.

In addition to co-creating and starring in the acclaimed television show, “Dog Whisperer” on the National Geographic Channel, Millan has co-authored three books: The New York Times bestseller “Cesar’s Way,” bestseller “Be the Pack Leader” and “Dog Whisperer with Cesar Millan: The Ultimate Episode Guide.” His DVDs and CDs are top sellers as well, and his appearances on “The Tonight Show,” “Oprah” and other television shows have made him a pop culture icon. At the Palace, Millan will touch upon his life experiences and teach audience members how to apply his techniques in the training and rehabilitation of their own dogs.

Tix are $35.75 and $45.75, as well as a limited number of $75 VIP tickets, which include a post-show meet and greet with Millan.

Popovich Comedy Pet Theater rolls into The Egg in Albany at 3pm on Saturday, featuring an array dogs – and cats, too – all of whom have been rescued from animal shelters. Comedian, clown and juggler Gregory Popovich is the ringmaster for this fun-for-the-whole-family performance, but his four-legged furry friends are just as talented – and funny, too.

Tix are $20; children $16.
