Cesar Millan, the world-renowned 'dog whisperer', has announced plans for his first tour of the UK.
Fans in Gloucestershire will have to wait until March, 2010, and travel to Cardiff or Birmingham to see him, but appetites were whetted when the canine behaviourist was a guest on the BBC Radio Gloucestershire afternoon show.
"It all started in Mexico," said Cesar, looking back over his life with David Smith.
"I grew up on a farm and my grandfather [always] said to me 'never work against mother nature'. We had a pack of dogs at the ranch so we got to see how they would interact with each other.
"When I moved to the city, dogs would start following me which to me was natural and normal but at the age of 13 I said I wanted to be the best dog trainer in the world.
"When I was 21 I decided to go to America and I crossed the border with a dream to learn from Americans. I didn't realise I was going to teach them and eventually share my knowledge with the world!
"I get a significant amount of satisfaction helping a human to understand how simple life is if we see it from a dog's perspective."
