Canine rehabilitation is the main occupation of Milla , which is portrayed in the program through real cases of dog's owners. As he says in his book, "Cesar 's Way", he was raised on a farm with dogs. Millan's Canine Psychology Center opened in the mid- 90s. The strongest interest of Cesar is rehabilitation of aggressive dogs. He has a special affection for what he calls "powerful races", such as Pit Bull, Rottweiler, German Shepherd and Doberman.


Millan emphasizes his grandfather as the man who most influenced him in becoming a dog trainer. In his book, Millan states that every dog ​​he sees, his grandfather's spirit is present.

Millan spent most of his childhood in his grandfather's farm in Mazatla caring for dozens of cows, transporting them to the water and daily pasture. They lived in a small house made of brick and clay with only four rooms and no running water, but Millan says he never felt poor. By contrast, he saw the farm as a paradise. Cesar was fascinated by all the animals from an early age, but focused and spent most of the time observing the behavior of flocks of farm dogs and how they worked helping his grandfather to reunite cows, or protecting members of the family of aggressive animals. Cesar notice that these dogs never needed training or special commands, or be rewarded with cookies, they just did the work according to the needs in their natural state. He says those farm dogs were actually teachers in the art and science of canine psychology.

Millan also realized that the herd behavior change in different farms. In some herds dogs can occasionally fight to become the leader of the group and their dominance as the owner simply watches. However dogs from his grandfather farm never discussed the command in this way, his grandfather always kept quiet, assertive, naturally assuming the role of pack leader. This is one of the main principles of Millan's philosophy.
