Cesar Millan liked animals a lot from a very early age, as he had to take care of them on his grandfather’s farm. He was especially good with dogs, and even had a nickname of “the dog boy’. When Cesar came to the US, he worked at a dog grooming store. This was the time when Millan’s net worth began growing. Soon Cesar founded the “Pacific Point Canine Academy”, and later he also created the “Dog Psychology Center”, which had a huge impact on the growth of Cesar Millan’s net worth.

This show was about Cesar and his everyday work of dog rehabilitation, and very soon became one of the main sources of Cesar Millan’s net worth. The program ended in 2012, but despite this fact it was still one of the best shows on the “Nat Geo WILD” channel. In addition to this, in 2009 the magazine, entitled “Cesar’s Way” was released, and such shows as “Cesar Millan’s Leader of the Pack” and “Cesar 911” began airing, and added a lot to Cesar’s net worth.

As mentioned, Cesar Millan has also written books, such as “How to Raise the Perfect Dog: Through Puppyhood and Beyond”, “Cesar’s Way: The Natural, Everyday Guide to Understanding and Correcting Common Dog Problems”, “Cesar Millan’s Short Guide to a Happy Dog: 98 Essential Tips and Techniques” and others.

1In the United States, in the '70s, they did the same thing to the Doberman. In the '80s they did it to the German shepherd, in the '90s they did it to the Rottweiler, and now they're doing it to the pit bull. So whatever dog is in fashion, people are going to blame them for things.
2(When asked if he has been bitten) Of course. It's like cowboys that get stomped by bulls. Any time you're working in the world of taming animals, you're going to get hurt. But it's a rush that we get.
3Birth, life, death is a cycle. And they're all beautiful, you celebrate all of them. Animals do grieve, but they move on. That's the lesson behind animals.
4Everybody wants common sense. The show is offering us a sense of primal connection we have lost through civilization.
5She has no rules in the outside world, no boundaries. You practice exercise and affection. But you're not practicing exercise, discipline, and affection. When we love someone, we fulfill everything about them. That's loving. And you're not loving your dog.
6No dog is too much for me to handle. I rehabilitate dogs, I train people. I am the dog whisperer.
