– Us famous. Some relationships
begin kinda rocky, okay. Now, come and meet my pack. (upbeat music) (dog barks) (upbeat music) All right, Holly. We’re gonna watch our
video together, okay? We’re gonna watch our video
together that made us famous. Some relationships
begin kinda rocky, okay? Some relationships begin kinda rocky. All right YouTube family,
I haven’t seen this episode of Dog Whisperer for
like more than 10 years, I really don’t look at
everything I do in the past. I’m one of those guys that
moves on, helps the dogs, helps dogs, helps humans,
helps families, save the day, move on, come out with
a different challenge, a different mission,
that’s the kinda guy I am, that’s the kind of life I like to live. This is my girl, Holly. We did an episode together. We went to help her family, they’d had a child and she
developed a problem around food. That was her thing. Holly, I’m talking. So my normal thing is,
when I’m with a dog, I normally remove family members. Why? Because family members will
trigger a memory, right. Will trigger a memory. If a dog gets excited with family members, they’ll become excited. If a dog is nervous or tense, no different from a family
member that you don’t agree with and that you get tense with. Or there’s some kind of bad memory and that’s why you don’t
wanna see that family member. And so humans have the
option of removing themself from family members who
don’t trust, respect or love. But they don’t. So they have to live
with these pet parents who practice not 100% trust, not
100% respect, not 100% love. That creates a lot of
tension on a dog, right. ‘Cause he’s living in a
very toxic environment. She doesn’t feel safe,
she doesn’t feel peaceful, she doesn’t feel love and
that’s the environment alone. I just wanna make sure that you understand what she’s going through. All that psychological warfare
that she’s going through. All that emotional warfare
that she’s going through. All that spiritual warfare
that she’s going through because they are not trusting her, they are not respecting her,
they are not loving her, they are not understanding her, they are not connecting with her, they are not communicating with her, they are not having 100% relationship. So no dog on earth wants
to live with a family who doesn’t fully trust them. Alfie, you wanna watch it with me? How your father’s such a hero. Look. The seriousness. “See that’s unsure, that’s not submission.” That’s right. So it’s a silence. There, then she gets excited. So she gets excited. This starts happening when the owner came. So when the owner was inside the house, Holly was like, okay,
who’s all these people? And who’s this guy? And this guy actually knows how I feel and he knows how to communicate with me and I’m actually feeling really good. He understands me, he knows I’m insecure, he knows I’m at the back of the pack and he knows I’m confused. So that gives me a big relief. So that’s Holly and me
having a conversation before the bite, okay? Before the bite. So when she started getting
a little bit aggressive and protective of her old way of being, is because the owner
was in a personal space. That’s why I remove in the
beginning but then I say, well nothing bad was happening so I know that if I bring the owner, I’m gonna bring back the memory. So I wanna see how bad the memory is. And it was bad. – [Mesa] And that’s the
owner in the background? – See, yeah, the owner in the background. So here’s the owner in the background, he’s in a personal space and that’s the first time
she exhibits this aggression. So now the insecurity turn into like, “normally when my humans are around” “I express myself this way.” It had nothing to do
between me and her, okay? That’s why I never make anything personal when a dog bites or
jumps or whatever it is. It has nothing to do with the dog and me ’cause that’s our first time meeting. This is our first time meeting. So this is the part where
I am letting her know that this behavior, like she’s
doing the teeth like that and I’m in a position
almost like a yoga position, just to let her know
that I’m going to provide this guidance to you but I’m
not making you wrong for it. There you go, then she surrender. There you go. Then she goes through that episode like, “Normally this is what I do!” And then I go in like, well
that’s not what we want. So, what I’m doing at that moment is I’m blocking the brain from escalating. And then by me staying in that position, that warrior position
like a yoga position, I’m providing an energy so I can block her from escalating energy body language. All right. So it’s like what is that guy from Marvel, doctor what, doctor who? Doctor Strange, he’s
like providing an energy and a body language. So it’s the same. It’s the same. It’s asking her instincts
to not keep escalating in a way that they
understand because among them they do this to each other. So they do express energy body language, it’s just the humans
haven’t done it to her ’cause most people do, “No, leave it! “Stop it, no!” so they use sound and body language. So it’s gonna be impossible
for a dog to calm down. It has to be energy,
silence and body language. So no sound and body language versus sound and body language. Sound and body language is for humans, no sound and body language is for dogs. So that’s why I’m doing this
motion, these positions. And of course the owner is like. Hm, interesting. Instead of him relaxing, he’s actually being tense and unsure. You know, like what to
feel, how to support ’cause it’s very important. It’s very important
that the owner support, because we’re parenting. At this time we’re both parenting. Takes a village to raise a child, well it takes a whole family
to rehabilitate one dog. “You have to give her a moment” “because the brain has got stuck.” – [Man] Yeah. – Yeah. So here you see after the
energy body language moment, she goes like, what just happened? What just happened? You can see how Holly is just, “hm, that was good, I like this.” “I’m feeling calm surrender.” “Hm.” Such that you can see clearly how she starts getting
into the dog side of her. Like that’s what they should do, that’s what we should do for them. Help them to become calm, open-minded. So if the brain is aggressive,
your job is to make sure, if the brain is aggressive,
the body is tense. So your job is to make
sure the body relaxes and the brain calms, opens up. Now I’m talking with the owner
and just letting them know what I did, what’s the next
step, what is happening. So I’m breaking it down. I’m decoding what is happening
and so it’s a show and tell. In dog behavior it’s not
so much about telling, it’s about showing. Show and tell. – [Man] So he didn’t do that to you earlier? – “No, not like that.” – [Man] Right. – Then the guy, “So you’re saying “that she didn’t do that to you earlier?” I said “No, not like that.” absolutely, you can watch
the whole entire episode. But as soon as the owner
comes into the picture, you can see the switch, pow! The switch immediately. Because that’s all she knows between the owner and her and food. Remember, Holly is only
(murmurs) around food. You take food away, she
becomes like an angel. It’s a switch. But the switch wasn’t the
food, it was the owner. So the owner has more power than the food. “Not at all.” – [Man] Okay. – “This is the first
time is see this in her.” look at how skinny I am. My hair is not so white. I love her eye, Ah! Ahaha So she was like, I don’t know
who these people in the back, and so this is my mistake, this
is where my mistake came in. I got too comfortable. I got too comfortable
right away and that led to her letting me know I’m
not ready for that kinda, you pity me in my head, I don’t trust you 100%
yet Mr Cesar Millan. So that’s that second that I didn’t read, that I didn’t feel led to the the bite. See, she lunged after that. So, I touch, right and then, let me just roll (mumbles). She just lunged, she just like that’s it. – “I didn’t see that coming-” I didn’t see that coming. So what I’m doing right now, I’m just making sure that she
gets some kinda feedback on, like I’m not making you wrong, whatever happened to you
in your head at this time, it’s not your fault, it’s not
my fault, it just happened. So I have to stay there. This is what I call the follow-through. So once I make an agreement, I commit and then I follow through. I’m asking for water because the pain is taking over my stamina, my strength. So the water is just to keep
the oxygen inside myself. So I’m waiting three
minutes while I’m in pain, that’s how committed I am. (camera man speaks) – “No, not submitting yet.” there you go. She is about to. I can see my face going a little pale. From the pain. I’m saying that the aggression,
but the guy is crying. So right away when you get bit, you have to put some kind of something that can kill the bacteria
’cause the bacteria will hurt you the most, not the bite. – “it’s better. Open mouth.” Five minutes four seconds. – “Some ice.” – [Woman] Ice for Cesar. Ice. – [Man] Cesar, I’m sorry. – “No worries, man. That’s my job.” – “Don’t worry, don’t worry about it.” – Is he okay? Oh my god, that was really bad. – [Woman] It is fine. She needs major rehabilitation. That’s okay. That’s why we’re here. Yeah. I mean she just went after. I was not “triggering” it. I was not like… yeah, I was not “triggering”. I was just making a connection of just let me touch, let’s
gain some more…let’s close the gap, let’s close the distance
by me putting my hand and giving you, not affection
but just giving you trust. Right? But because the owner was so close to her, and the food still was
there, she couldn’t take it. So she didn’t know what to do with it, ’cause normally the owner
leaves the food and walks away. And that she couldn’t take it, so whatever was in front of
her, if it was a kiddie pool or a plastic, she would
have grabbed that plastic. If it was a blanket, she
would have bite the blanket. And that’s the same thing. The fact that a dog practices
or exhibits aggression, it doesn’t have to be
on a human to be bad. It’s just that you don’t want
them to practice aggression on anything, that’s why a
lot of times I tell people, don’t do tug of war with your dog if he’s using aggression to play. ‘Cause what you’re doing is, you’re allowing and
encouraging aggression. So what I suggested right
away is rehabilitation. That’s fine, let’s rehabilitate, I understand what I gotta work on. And so Holly came and stayed with me and she started doing really good. Why? I’ll tell you why she
started doing really good, because the moment she came into the pack, everybody welcomed her. All the dogs that I had at that time, I had like 40 something dogs at that time. Everybody welcomed her and she was like, “I don’t have to be in charge!” “And everybody accepts
me, everybody trusts me!” She never ever behaved aggressive
with any dog around food. Never. She never ever behaved aggressive with any chicken around food. For her was food and
humans means no trust, but every other specie means trust. So that for me is like I’m
starting to look at it, so I start feeding her
when she was in that state. So in the beginning she
was the last to eat, because this kind of mind are very respectful, they are not the first
one who eat in the pack. They are the last ones
who eat in the pack. And for her that’s normal. So she started doing normal activities. So for her it was like, “oh
my god this feel like Club Med!” “it feels like I’m in a spa.” “I’m in a place where I’m in a retreat!” and some people call it boot camp. This is not boot camp, this is retreat. This is where the dog comes
and does natural activities, simple activities, profound activities. And slowly you can see how she just, food was not her worry. Food is her goal. Look, look. Food is her, that’s it. I can relate to Holly because I love food. I’m a foodie, okay, I am a foodie. Look at that. See that silence right there? Down, down. That’s right. Holly, come. Sit. Wow. She’s a machine, okay? I call her the Venus Williams of my pack ’cause she’s so athletic. I mean this girl is athletic. She’s super fast. Extremely fast. Powerful. Look at the focus. All for a bowl of food. So before as you remember,
she would have gone like but right now, this is
your typical frame of mind of a dog that is attentive,
is alert, is obedient, understands that this is a challenge and she might get the food,
she might not get the food. And that’s actually the job. Aren’t you a good girl. Oh my god. I smell like kibble, I don’t like that. My whole face is full of kibble now. YouTube familia, thank
you so much for watching. We’re gonna keep watching
a lot more videos. Obviously, I’m pretty sure you
want me to watch your videos and help you to break it down and digest them and decode them
and help you understand it. But more than anything,
thank you for watching. Let’s make this place, this
beautiful planet a better planet by changing how we live
in it, how we communicate, connect and relate to mother nature, I think it’s something we
can do in this era of 2019. I think we’re a pretty much evolved and I think earth is tired of us not doing the right thing
and breaking the rules and the boundaries and the limitations and sending the wrong energy
and not working as a family, not working as a pack. But more than anything, thank
you so much for watching and I hope you know that Holly is perfect. (upbeat music)

100 thoughts on “What Happened to Holly? | Reacting To Cesar’s Worst Bite”

  1. Do you guys remember this episode? Have you ever made a mistake with an animal and what have you learned since then?

  2. It's so good to hear when people admit to when something was their mistake rather than immediately blaming the dog. Of course, it's also what I've learned to expect from you because you are so awesome.

  3. Dear Cesar Millan,
    I was very happy to discover your YouTube channel. I hope that you may have finally found a platform in which you are compensated proportionately for the job you do as a human being for families and canines. I would rather your view count climb one higher on any of your videos because every time another person watches one of your videos, another person in the world becomes more educated on dog behavior. Bob Ross is to painting what Cesar Millan is to dogs.
    -Love who you became as a person. -Patrick Hemmer.

  4. I've used so many of these techniques with my dogs in the past. I've even gotten aggressive fighting dogs to foster and get ready for homes.
    Recently, I had gotten betten by a dog I was trying to rescue from the streets. The poor dog was terrified and didn't trust anyone. The only option I had was to actually put myself in danger and get bit to get a leash on it. This was after trying to familiarize it with my presence. The dog was very ill and needed medical treatment fast. The bite was pretty bad, but worth saving an animals life. The dog is now in a loving home with 3 kids, and shows no aggressive attributes.

  5. Some people keep saying that you hit the dog because it bit you,it’s animal abuse but people who say that would also do the same thing if they were the one bitten.

  6. I would have cried too if my dog bit someone like that. As a groomer, i have been bitten like that too. Hurts like hell.

  7. Since i dont remember the show you shoulve told how you got to keep her. Did the owners didnt wanted her nomore ?? I have to know this

  8. I used to work at an animal hospital years ago and I definitely made a huge mistake with a chow that was food aggressive. We always had to take her outside to get her out of her run to put her food down because she was extremely food aggressive. I made the mistake of forgetting to take her outside to put her food down in her run and she lunged me in my side so hard it took me to the ground and knocked the breath out of me. I did not blame the dog for what happened because it was my mistake for forgetting about her food aggression.

  9. Owning dogs all my life (I'm 65), and working with them and their owners for 50+ years, I've found that, when it comes to aggressive behavior, I get the dog away from the owner FIRST. Because of the history, the owner anticipates an aggressive action and actually unintentionally triggers an attack.

    Man Cesar, love to sit down with you, have a beer and exchange info, solve the dog problems of the world.

    Love your stuff. Stay safe and well.

  10. A german shepherd bit my arm years ago and there were 4 coin sized holes in my arm and I bled sooo much and had to get stitches. I don’t remember much since it was traumatic and a long time ago but I still love dogs!

  11. So, I never saw the episode associated with this video, so perhaps I'm missing a beat here, but just watching this I can't help but wonder: Why is Holly still with Cesar? Shouldn't she be with her owner?

  12. Dude you are amazing dude! I 💯 agree with your final statements! We need to be responsible and take care of this planet that provides for us!
    Love you my friend!

  13. Thank you so much for showing people animals can and do communicate in a non verbal way, and that they deserve love and security and trust just like people do.
    You're wonderful, dont stop being amazing!

  14. My friend pitbull bit me on the face and left a permanent scar. I went to pet him while he was chewing on his bone. The owner of the dog basically argues that this is what pitbull do. Pissed me of pretty bad.

  15. Cesar probably avoided to say it, but the owner probably hit his dog thinking it was the way to train his dog.

  16. Does anyone know what breed of dog Holly is? We have a male dog who looks exactly like her but he and his sister are rescues (we found them two years ago, starving to death–literally–when they were approximately a year old and know nothing about their parentage or background). The female looks exactly like a Carolina dog so we know they are not pure Labrador–which is what we think he mostly is. They have so many characteristics in common that we are sure they are siblings, even though they obviously have inherited the majority of their respective characteristics from different parents. They both have ENORMOUS feet and the longest tails I have ever seen in a dog. I would love to know what their breed mix is.

  17. You are such a sight of relief… I feel pity for those foolish people, who believe the gossips of you using electric/barb collars. News sure make bad assumptions from everything.

  18. So were the Holly's owners abusing her? Why would she get so tense when they were around? And so now Ceaser is her owner?

  19. I remember this episode & what an arrogant owner. Just for the record Cesar Milan you're still hot & sexy with white hair.Much love & respect .

  20. Here is a story

    I was really scared of dogs until my 20's and this was a big problem for me because there are lots of stray dogs on streets in my country. After I watched Cesar's "Dog Whisperer" I realized that dogs are behaving violent if necessary and if you know how to communicate with them they treat you amazingly well.

    Last year I was walking on the street, a pack of dogs approached behind me. I was a little nervous but I maintained my posture and they just went by. Couple meters later another dog pack came out of woods across the road and started barking at them. Dog pack and the people on the street were frozen. I thought "Ok, They are just defending their territorry across the road. They probably dont mean no harm to people or the dog pack" and kept walking casually while everyone was frozen. That moment the dog pack saw me and started to follow me. I became the alpha:D. They accepted me as their leader and followed me about 10 minutes. I was walking on sidewalk surrounded by unleashed dogs. That was amazing 😀 In the end I had to shooe them away because I had to take the bus and didnt want to scare the people away at the bus stop. I still fondly remember that day.

    I will always be grateful for the knowledge you gave me Cesar! Thank you!

  21. I miss our labrador. She was my mom's seeing eye dog tho, so she came to us (kinda) fully trained. The only thing that she could never ever cope with were cats. She wanted to go after them, but only when she wasn't in her harness. Then she somehow pulled together, luckily. Otherwise she would probably not have qualified.

  22. I played tug of war with my neighbors pit bull. He got over zealous and bit my hand. He was sooo sorry and full of regret. I was ok tho. He drew a little blood but nothing to worry about. The next time he grabbed the rope he was suuuper careful. I miss and loved that dog.

  23. Huge balls on Cesar to show dominance with dogs that are uncomfortable. The second they show teeth and make sudden movements I back down which re-enforces their behaviour.. he just takes the bite like a man and lets the dog know it won't achieve anything

  24. I was expecting his explanation for the kick that he gave to her.
    Something like "I kicked her because is the most effective way to evade a bite" jajaja

  25. aww you can see how sorry and confused she looks for biting him when he's standing over her to wait for her to process and calm down :c
    glad she got to meet ceaser and be raised up by him properly, most people would have just put the dog down an get a new one and repeat the cycle

  26. I feel so bad that after that… idiot people that don't understand dog agression and attacks to the level of an animal behaviorist. The side kick to the chest/neck region was what a dog does when they correct another dog. He didn't kick hard enough to hurt her, just enough to get the message across to her in the way she would get it. He knows what he is saying. Coming from another dog trainer that learned from a world renown trainer that originally didn't like him but grew to agree with him

  27. Siempre me habia quedado con la duda de que habia pasado con ese perro. Que bueno saber que esta feliz y tranquilo con otros perro 😁

  28. 5:05 I tried that position with a chihuahua and he became really agressive hahahaha. I think the position is the problem or probably I was not making correctly hahahaha.

  29. The bite then the kick, there's no trust after that. He kicked the dog. Damn it I've made several mistakes Cesar. I'm a good dawg owner wish I'd could send you a picture of this great dog.

  30. My dog of almost 10 years recently died, and it makes me happy to see you so happy with your dogs. My Arnie was adopted for free from a shelter, and we were so lucky to have him. Aside from a bout of roundworm in the first few weeks, when he left a Jackson Pollock painting of poop on the landing at the top of our stairs, only one other incident of him pooping in the house, and him chewing up my brother's wallet, he was so gentle and learned very quick. If you told him "no" or "bad dog", he would never do that same thing again. I could lay down with my head next to his food bowl while he was eating, and even put my hand right in the bowl, and he was completely trusting. He'd growl at the cats though lol. He could get aggressive if we had to clean up a puke, but even if he snapped at you, he could put his whole mouth around your hand but he would not bite. If you hand fed him a treat or something, he would ever so gently grab it just by his front teeth. He wouldn't aggressively snatch it from you like some dogs. I miss him so much.

  31. Hello,
    Please do not take this personally, but I've never watched your show. The only times I have seen you on camera are when you were working with Stella and with Gallop. You charmed me.
    Yes, I have made a lot of mistakes! I think the most basic thing I have learned is to be aware. Also, not to jump in where angels fear to tred.
    I worked at the dog pound for a while. One day, I was lifting a small iguana to clean his cage. I lifted him uncomfortably and he bit me. Big deal. But, you had to report all bites. Well, the piece of dirt who ran the place had it killed and sent it's head off to the lab to test it for rabies! I kept telling him that reptiles do not carry rabies! I hate him.

    Thanks for pointing me here, Mesa!

    Cheers!

  32. The owner always was afraid of Holly and he would go after her with a broom handle. He beat Holly , out of fear and it made her more aggressive. I think this was part of the reason Caeser kept Holly. She was doomed in that household. Glad she got out

  33. Although I don't agree fully with all your techniques (I have none in mind right now, and it's not me starting up a debate, chill, youtube commenters) I really respect what you're doing for dogs worldwide, as your show has been seen quite far from the US (I'm french, for instance ^^ )and your main mantra is mutual respect.

    As for my worst (and only lmao) bite, I was 6, he was a black labrador, 2 maybe 3 y/o, I was warned not to run near him as he'd want to play, but might be too "joyful".

    Some time passed, and I saw his friend, a chill female lab, that I wanted to pet. I ran after her.

    The young lab thought "playtime yassss !!!!", ran after me (so I ran faster) finally caught up to me, gently picked my trousers with his teeth, pulled the thing down, and CHEWED MY ASS

    That's dedication, I tell you.
    Thankfully, it didn't gave me any fear of dogs, or animals in general, as I knew (and was explained, too) that it was mostly my fault, and that the dog just misinterpreted my actions.

    Some would say the dog is in fault, but, now, as an adult dog owner, I know I acted foolish as well.
    Teach dogs to behave along humans, and, please, teach kids how to behave along dogs. If they know what they're doing, and how to be respectful and gentle, the risk of a bad encounter with a dog reduces drastically. Do it for the kids, do it for the dogs.

  34. Apparently some people consider him a dog abuser.
    You can tell how abused Holly is since she's clearly horrified of him and licking his face out of pure fear lmao

  35. You are an exceptional human on the level of Steve Irwin, you deserve blessings for your understanding of the canine soul.

  36. Does Cesar Millan have any episodes on dogs with aggressive love? Like they start licking your face but when you push them away after a bit they growl?

  37. This guy has a screw loose. First he gets significant bite on his hand then he spends the next 5 minutes strategically positioning his crotch over the dog's nose. SMH
