Finding success as the Dog Whisperer, Cesar Millan is picking up the pieces from a downward spiral. After his trusted pitbull, Daddy died, Millan attempted suicide. With a new show “Leader of the Pack” on NAT GEO Wild and a new book “A Short Guide to a Happy Dog,” Millan looks to save the five to seven million dogs that are abandoned per year. He stopped by to chat with Soledad.
Millan says he has adopted a new philosophy, “Exercise discipline- body, mind, and heart,” by observing dogs. He says, “Dogs live in the moment, are not consumed by past mistakes…I got to a point where I felt I have no pack. I felt that I had no worth in life. And, obviously, I became very consumed and very selfish. Then I forgot that I teach people and help people do exercise, have a challenge in life.”
Leader of the Pack airs Saturdays at 10pm on NAT GEO Wild.
Starting Point airs weekdays from 7am to 9am ET on CNN. Check in often to join the daily conversation.
