About the Episode
Orange County whistleblower Debi alerts Cesar to her neighbors, the Dong family, who are afraid of their first family dog — a black Lab mix named Misty, who has bitten every member of the household. Debi and other neighbors have suggested the Dongs do the unthinkable: have Misty put down. Cesar immediately notices that she is showing signs of insecurity and, after working with the family, suggests taking her to his Dog Psychology Center to help her build confidence around his pack. Will Misty return home a changed dog for her human pack?
Cesar’s next stop takes him to whistleblower Brad, who is having major trouble with his sister Nicole’s Shiba Inu mix, Auggie, who constantly attacks Brad’s dog, Kimo, whenever the family is together. Cesar teaches Brad and Nicole about giving dogs boundaries as well as personal space, and points out that their nervous energy leads to aggression in their dogs. But can he overcome the real obstacle: Nicole’s fear that Auggie will go on the attack?
