Cesar Millan is looking for a few good, bad dogs for when he comes to Penticton in November.

Is your dog well socialized, but has a few unwanted behavioural problems? Does he bark excessively, infuriating you and your neighbours? Does she enthusiastically greet guests by jumping up on them? Does he pull and in turn, choke himself while on leash? Is she fixated on squirrels or pine cones? If you answered yes to any of these behavioral problems, then world renowned dog behaviour expert, Millan wants you. On Nov. 8, Millan brings his Trust Your Instincts seminar to the South Okanagan Events Centre. During the seminar, Millan will work with select local dogs to demonstrate and educate fellow pack leaders in the audience.

“My new seminar tour will give dog owners the tools to recognize how to create an environment of balance and calmness for their dogs. This will prevent and resolve everyday problems” said Millan.

Millan’s team is now recruiting socialized dogs, over the age of 18 months that show hyperactive tendencies and behaviours such as: lead pulling, food rushing, jumping, excessive barking and obsession with an object or toy.

To apply, the Cesar Millan dog search process is three fold. First, prospective pack leaders must complete the online form at http://cesarmillanlive.com/dog-application/. Millan’s team will review the applications and shortlist suitable canine candidates. The second stage, for shortlisted dogs, is a meeting with Millan’s team before the seminar here in Penticton.  During this stage, dogs will demonstrate everyday behaviour problems that their owners face at home. With each dog, Cesar’s team will ensure the dog’s welfare and appropriateness for demonstration. Finally, during the seminar at the SOEC, pre-selected dogs and owners will take to the stage.

Tickets for Cesar Millan Trust Your Instincts seminar are on sale now for $24.50, $49.50, $69.50 and VIP $125.00. VIP tickets include entry into a group Q&A session with Millan, following the seminar. Tickets can be purchased at www.ValleyFirstTix.com by telephone at 1-877-SOEC-TIX (763-2849) or in-person at the Valley First Box Office (at the SOEC) and the Wine Country Visitor Centre.

Please Note:  This seminar is for people.  Dogs in the audience will not be permitted. Only pre-selected demonstration dogs and approved service dogs are permitted. The SOEC is not involved in the dog selection process and will not receive dog applications.
