The one-hour special follows Millan's incredible rise from impoverished illegal immigrant to celebrity dog trainer to international superstar. The cameras roll as he embarks on his latest Cesar LIVE world speaking seminar, begins filming his new Nat Geo WILD television series Leader of the Pack in Spain, and leads thousands of dogs and owners on a Pack Walk in Washington, D.C., to raise awareness about dog adoption."For years, the world has known me as the Dog Whisperer," says Millan. "But not many people know my [full] personal story." Until now! In the new special, viewers will follow Millan around the world as he inspires people to become pack leaders in their own lives in his latest world tour, and join him in Spain as he films his NEW series Leader of the Pack, which will sneak preview the same night, Sunday, November 25, at 10 p.m. ET/PT, before premiering in January. During the hour, Millan recalls how his incredible skill with dogs led to his rise to fame as the Dog Whisperer, and addresses those who are critical of his methods. "I don't think there is only one way to help a dog," says Millan. "In nine years on television I have shown that there are many ways. So when critics come after me, it doesn't really bother me." He continues, "My show gave people hope that they could have a good relationship with their dog. And that's something that I'm very proud of."
