This week on Cesar 911, Cesar Millan helps two businesses taken over by the owners’ rowdy dogs. From three rogue Bichons to an overweight Lab, Cesar’s patients believe they’re the bosses.

Dogs #1: The Moos

The Challenge First, Cesar is called to Frisco’s, a dog-friendly diner. Frisco’s whistleblowers Patti and Lori Jo love the restaurant’s pet-welcoming patio, but have one big problem: the Moos.

The Moos are three manic Bichons, whose reign of terror over Frisco’s drives away customers and makes employees nuts.

To make matters worse, the dogs are the prized possessions of Frisco’s owner Takis, whose big, fat, Greek personality lets the dogs run wild.

The Moos’ mania is no better at home, where the three dogs drive Takis’ wife Joanne crazy.

The Diagnosis

It doesn’t take long for Cesar to realize the problem: Takis adores the Moos too much to discipline them.

cesar_outofcontrol

Takis wants his dogs to look Greek, sound Greek and act Greek – and loves their bad behavior.

Cesar’s task will be to break the Moos from their manic habits, and to teach Takis how to control his beloved pups.

The Treatment

Cesar first shows Takis that with a calm walk and proper leash handling, he can keep the Moos from freaking out. Takis can’t believe what he’s seeing.

But staying calm doesn’t jive with Takis’ big personality, and he highly doubts he can recreate Cesar’s zen-like cool. cesar_takis

So to teach Takis how to reign in the Moos, Cesar takes them to meet his own dogs. Unsurprisingly, the Moos freak out.

But then, Cesar shows Takis how to hold their leash in a way that calms them down. Takis’ gentler touch soothes the Moos immediately.

Once he teaches Cesar to keep the Moos calm at the restaurant, the next step is to keep them out of Takis and Joanne’s bedroom. Takis loves having the Moos surrounding him in bed. Joanne? Not so much.

After Takis balks yet again at putting the Moos in their own beds, Joanne makes it clear she’s had enough.

And just like that – the Moos are out of the bed.

For good.

Turns out, all Takis needed was a little extra motivation to discipline the Moos. Chalk up yet another successful intervention for Cesar!

Dog #2: Beau

The Challenge

For his second patient, Cesar makes a special trip to the Freedom Writer’s Foundation. Founded 17 years ago by teacher Erin Gruwell (or Ms. G), the program enabled at-risk students to write about their hardships and caught the eye of Hollywood, resulting in the movie “Freedom Writers” starring Hillary Swank.

Freedom Writers employees Tiffony and Sue Ellen were both Ms. G’s students and love the work their former teacher does for underprivileged youth. But their peaceful workplace has just one issue: Ms. G’s dog Beau.

A 140-pound Labrador, Beau is a continuous interruption to the staff’s workday, especially when he’s delivering a dead animal in the middle of a meeting.

Overweight and lazy, Beau doesn’t think twice about jumping for food on the table, especially for pizza.

And once he’s down, it’s hard to get him back up again.

cesar_lazy

Tiffony and Sue Ellen love their workplace, and don’t want Beau’s reign over the office to continue to hurt their work.

cesar_laugh

To confront Ms. G and Beau, Cesar ambushes them with his hood up to play into Beau’s fear of strange men. Beau is not pleased.

The Diagnosis

Ms. G is relieved when she sees Cesar, and explains how she can’t control her dog’s naughty quirks. She may be an expert at teaching the hardest students, but Ms G. can’t seem to apply the same wisdom to training her dog, who she’s unable to discipline and control.

cesar_sucker

After observing Beau’s barking – and calming down with a snap – Cesar sees that Beau dominates his environment. He needs to teach Ms. G to be a better leader of not just her students, but her pet as well.

cesar_beau1

The Treatment

Cesar’s first task: getting Beau into Ms. G’s car, his least favorite place. Beau’s negative associations with cars keeps him from climbing in, so Cesar turns the process into a game.

cesar_game

Sure enough, with a lot of coaxing and a little boost, Beau hops into the car with ease.

cesar_beaucar

But Beau’s office disruptions are a different matter. To show Cesar the extent of the issue, the Freedom Writers staff gather in the conference room. Within a minute, Beau starts barking and breaks through the door. It’s up to Cesar to teach Ms. G strategies to calm him down.

cesar_beaudoor

Using a code word, Cesar reconditions Beau to wait outside the door. Even when Ms. G tries to lure him in using pizza, his favorite food, Beau doesn’t budge.

cesar_pizzaa

Cesar’s last challenge is to manage Beau’s aggression towards other dogs by teaching Ms. G how to keep him calm on walks. Ms G. can’t control Beau’s manic reaction, putting her at risk of getting hurt. But on a walk with Ms. G, Cesar notices that a pit bull they encounter is even more hostile than Beau.

cesar_barking

In typical Cesar fashion, he decides to go over and help the pit bull too.

cesar_pit

But while Cesar has his hands full with the pit bull, Ms. G handles Beau like a pro. With that, Cesar’s work with the Freedom Writers is done.

    I love Cesar’s shows and there’s always something special in every episode. But “The Moos” episode it is one of the most funny and awesome ones, specifically when the dogs were protesting in the truck by honking…

    Fun and funny. Hilarious, as a matter of fact. But alot of deeper truth, and the hilarity adds to the realization of this.

    Do you have one of these on Wilshire, the firehouse dalmation pup in Los Angeles? That was a great one. And there was another of a bull pup that wanted to take over ownership of his farm family and all their equipment….and was big and tough enough to do it. It was funny, too. And like Wilshire, it was a very successful intervention.

    Love this show Cesar, glad you found your way back. How does someone reach you about possibly getting someone on the show?
    I have a friend who has 6 dogs that really need your training/rehab ability.
    They bark, fight, beg food, run over people, refused to eat pretty much anything but dog treats or people food.
    I love that dogs, but I’m really concerned for their owner since she had one of her shoulders replaced in November 2013, and I’m afraid they will knock her down and re injure that shoulder.
    She has 5 large dogs and 1 smaller dog.
    Thanks for taking the time to read this

    You are awesome!!!! I have seen you restore so many fearful dogs, but in all the dogs I have worked with I have not found one like my Fila that is as fearful as him. He has been kicked out of all the training sessions he has been in. Is it breed orientated or just different dogs? ******* HELP PLEASE******
