Almost everyone knew who Cesar Millan is. He made news about being a poor boy from Mexico who went on his way to live the American dream by leaving everything behind. We may know he rose from rags to riches, and that he is known as the Dog Whisperer, but their things left untold that not many of us knew.
I was scrolling on Youtube one day and came across a new video with the title “The Untold Truth of the Dog Whisperer. Being a dog lover and owner myself, I can’t help but feel drawn towards anything that has “dogs” on them. To say I learn a lot from the video is an understatement. And I’m here to let you know of the things I’ve learned about the life of Cesar Millan.
Cesar Millan was bullied during his younger years as a child because of his great love for dogs. Growing up on a farm owned by his grandfather in Sinaloa, Millan. He’s always had a strange relationship with dogs – they would follow him everywhere he goes. Because of this, other kids would tease him and call him names like El Perrero, which, according to him, meant the “Dirty Dog Boy.” Instead of sulking in a corner, he used this as an advantage and started planning to become the greatest dog trainer in the world.

His first work was as a dog groomer. The first English sentence he learned was “Do you have application for work.” After living a homeless life and convenience store hot dogs, he landed a job where his bosses saw him work his magic among larger and aggressive dogs. After moving to Inglewood, he started walking dogs for a living. He earned the title “The Mexican Guy who can walk a pack of dogs.” Some of his first clients paid for his English lessons were Will and Jada Smith.
