Episode Summary


Lucy is a Dalmatian who lives with Caroline Baddour and Ron Gertsch. She is extraordinarily food aggressive, to the point where she snarls and chases her own tail. Cesar begins his work with Lucy by having Caroline give her food; Cesar uses his body to block her from her food bowl and takes control of it. Carolyn is clearly anxious and Cesar tells her that she needs to keep a calm energy with Lucy, because Lucy will sense and feed on Caroline's negative energy. He tells her that if she is worried and anxious about Lucy biting her, she can make it happen. Lucy responds well to this exercise and they move on to walking with her.

Claudia and Michael Ortopan have a Red Tick Elizabethan Beagle named Lizzie. Lizzie has worn a deep path in their back yard with compulsive running. She will exhaust herself running in this path. She is also terrified of the trash collection trucks. Cesar tells them that when you adopt from a shelter, you should first take them for a minimum of an hour-long walk for them to get to know you as their new pack leader. Then introduce them into the home. They take Lizzie for a walk and while they are out, a garbage truck comes by; at first Lizzie is frantic, but Cesar teaches her to sit at his side while the truck passes. Cesar returns after two weeks and finds that she has improved, but still needs more mental stimulation, so they get her walking on a treadmill and she soon focuses on this new activity.
