Cesar Millan Net Worth 2020, Biography and Career
Cesar Millan Net Worth 2020 – César Felipe Millán Favela is a Mexican-American dog behaviorist who has gained fame for his Emmy-nominated television series ‘Dog Whisperer with Cesar Millan’, which aired on National Geographic Channel from 2004 to 2011 and Nat Geo Wild from 2011 to 2012.
Millan has subsequently starred in TV series documentary ‘Cesar Millan’s Leader of the Pack’ and ‘Cesar 911’.
Born on August 27, 1969, in rural Culiacán, Sinaloa, Mexico, Millan is the second of five children of Felipe Millán Guillen and María Teresa Favela. He has one brother, Erick, and three sisters, Monica, Nora, and Mireya.
Both of his parents worked, but it was not enough. Millan spent most of his childhood working with animals on the farm in Sinaloa where his grandfather was a tenant farmer.
Since he was a child, Millan has demonstrated how natural he is around dogs. People who knew him at the time called him el perrero, “the dog herder”. He later relocated to Mazatlán, a resort town on the Pacific shoreline.
At the age of 21, Millan came to the US illegally through the US-Mexico border. He could not communicate in English back then and only had $100 on him.
He became acquainted with Jada Pinkett Smith during this period. To her, he divulged his aspirations of working with pets on television. She advised him to learn English first and helped him find a teacher.
After getting into the US, Cesar Millan first worked at a dog grooming store. Later, he set up the Pacific Point Canine Academy, where Pinkett Smith was one of his early clients. He briefly worked as a limousine driver as well. In 2002, he established the Dog Psychology Centre in South Los Angeles to provide special care for large breed dogs.
Millan received national attention after ‘Los Angeles Times’ ran an article on him. In 2002, he started collaborating with MPH Entertainment, Inc. on the television pilot for ‘Dog Whisperer’.
The show was conceptualized as a reflection of Millan’s years of experience dealing with pets. It would revolve around him as he attempts to rehabilitate unruly dogs.
In 2009, Millan started publishing the magazine ‘Cesar’s Way’ in the US and Canada. Serving as its editorial director, he used the magazine as a way to educate people on canine behavior. The magazine also published articles on the relationship between dogs and humans.
Between 2012 and 2013, Millan appeared in the Nat Geo Wild’s TV series documentary, ‘Cesar Millan’s Leader of the Pack’, which shows his initiative to find new homes for shelter dogs. The show is primarily shot at Millan’s newest Dog Psychology Center situated in Miraflores, Spain.
In 2014, Millan’s new series, ‘Cesar 911’, premiered on Nat Geo Wild. Renamed ‘Cesar to the Rescue’ in non-American markets, the show aired for three seasons. Besides starring in the series, Millan also served as an executive producer.
In 2015, he and Greek-Canadian entertainers and TV veterans Sid and Marty Krofft joined forces to make Nick Jr’s children TV series ‘Mutt & Stuff’. In 2017, Millan, along with his oldest son Andre, starred in his new show, ‘Cesar Millan’s Dog Nation’.
Millan travels around the world and hosts dog training lectures and stage performances. Known as ‘Cesar Millan Live!’, these shows are generally comprised of a lecture and a demonstration with local shelter dogs.
Millan has written multiple New York Times best-selling books, including ‘Cesar’s Way: The Natural, Everyday Guide to Understanding and Correcting Common Dog Problems’ (2007) and ‘Cesar Millan’s Lesson’s from the Pack: Stories of the Dogs Who Changed My Life’ (2017).
