What To Expect

As a graduate of Fundamentals 1, prepare to ascend to the next level in our exclusive program, where we delve deeper into the core values of pack leadership, with a sharp focus on energy and intention. Under the personal guidance of Cesar Millan, this hands-on experience propels you into real-life scenarios, empowering you to master each situation through the nuanced language of your energy and body.

Step outside your comfort zone and learn the art of being calm confident, embodying the true essence of pack leadership. In a transformative twist, Cesar challenges you to collaborate with carefully selected shelter dogs from the Los Angeles area. These dogs, unknown to Cesar before the workshop, provide a unique opportunity for you to assess and evaluate behavior, collectively working towards meaningful behavior goals.

To optimize your learning, student dogs are not part of this program. This deliberate choice allows you to fully engage with a diverse range of dog behaviors and challenges, offering insights that may not arise in typical settings.

Your impact extends beyond personal growth; it directly contributes to saving lives. Shelters we collaborate with report remarkable adoption rates, a testament to the techniques and knowledge shared during our program. Your participation becomes a powerful force in creating a brighter future for dogs in need.

As part of the interactive and personalized nature of Fundamentals 2, two essential assignments must be completed before attending:

Complete details about these pre-work assignments will be provided upon approval of your registration.
