LIVE: Cesar Millan & Junior @ the Palace Theatre, 3/27/11

Cesar Millan, TV’s popular “Dog Whisperer,” brought his pooch Junior to the Palace Theatre on Sunday. The diminutive Mexican immigrant could easily craft a second gig as a motivational business speaker, mind control expert or mad scientist. He claims he “trains people and rehabilitates dogs.” Well, yeah. If he had told the Palace crowd to roll over, they would have.

The beauty of Millan’s appearance, though, was that he didn’t try to expand his market. He kept it all about the dogs. After a brief bit of his own story, he glided into a sort of Cesar 101. Fans of the show have heard these sound bites before, but in a live setting it seemed as much a master class as an evening’s entertainment.

If you think we didn’t come home and immediately tell our dogs to sit, wait and lay down, you’re crazy. If you think we didn’t bring each of them a McDonald’s dollar-menu cheeseburger, you’re even crazier.

Cesar Millan

Best-selling author, television star and canine behavior specialist Cesar Millan is headed into Albany for an appearance at the Palace Theatre at 7pm on Sunday, March 27.

Priced at $35.75 and $45.75, tix are slated to go on sale to the general public at 10am on Friday, January 14. In addition, a limited number of VIP tickets – which includes a ticket to the appearance as well as a post-show meet ‘n’ greet with Millan – will also be available for $75.

Millan is the co-creator and the two-legged star of cable television show “Dog Whisperer” on the National Geographic Channel, as well as the co-author of three books: The New York Times #1 bestseller “Cesar’s Way,” bestseller “Be the Pack Leader” and “Dog Whisperer with Cesar Millan: The Ultimate Episode Guide.”

At his appearance at the Palace, Millan will touch upon his life experiences and teach attendees how to apply his techniques in the training and rehabilitation of their own dogs.

Let’s just hope that Millan doesn’t coax Nipper down from the roof…
