Episode Summary

Raging Rottie
Churchill is a Rottweiler/Shepherd mix who goes berserk when taken for walks. When he bit a neighbor who was petting him, the owners, Amir and Stephanie Kaspian, called Cesar. Churchill is so dog aggressive that Amir believes he cannot be socialized. Within two minutes Cesar has Churchill walking with one of his own dogs. He demonstrates that the key is having control immediately and not allowing the aggression to escalate; a calm, assertive energy is essential. Within a few minutes Cesar has Churchill walking with one of his own dogs, and soon after has both the owners walking Churchill around two different dogs, with no problems.

The Little Rascal
Athena Blakely and her two daughters, Destiny and Arielle, live with Maya, a Pit Bull mix. Destiny Blakely sends a letter to Cesar describing a day with Maya, and asking for his help. Maya is a good girl, but full of mischief, barking, stealing toys, and digging. Cesar explains to them that Maya needs a broader world than just her home and yard, as do all dogs. He feels that if these issues are not addressed, Maya will very likely become aggressive. He teaches them how to give Maya a physical challenge by walking with her. Three weeks later, Cesar returns to check on Maya's progress, which has been significant. He brings a backpack for Maya, the weight gives a more strenuous workout, and to give her the sense of having a job to do, which helps to focus and motivate her.moreless
