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.
