Episode Summary

There's Something About Emily
Emily is a 6-year old Pit Bull who is extremely dog aggressive. At home she is very sweet, but while out walking she completely changes. Her owners, Jessika Palmer and her father, David Palmer, fear that she will harm or kill another dog. Cesar takes Emily for a walk, and has his wife, Illusion, walk past with their Pit Bull, Daddy. Emily goes into the "red zone" of aggression. Cesar feels that the best way to deal with this is to take her to his Dog Psychology Center for six weeks to let his "pirate dogs" help socialize her. About two weeks into her time at the Dog Psychology Center, Jessika and David come for a visit. Cesar warns them that Emily may act out since that is how she had been used to acting around them, and that they should be careful to project a calm energy; sure enough, there's an incident. But overall, Emily makes great progress in the pack environment, and hopefully things will be different after this experience. For her graduation treat, Cesar takes Emily and a number of his dogs to do Emily's favorite activities-rollerblading. It's an amazing sight to see one man rollerblading with nine leashed dogs!moreless
