Slick and Pepper Summary

Pampered Puli

Academy Awards Telecast Producer, Michael Seligman and his wife, Teresa Cusick have a white Puli, named Slick, who is very timid, which causes him to show fear aggression. Cesar suggests that Slick visit the Dog Psychology Center in South Los Angeles to give Cesar a chance to evaluate Slick's behavior and how Michael and Teresa interact with him. Cesar has nearly 40 dogs at his center, all of whom were rescued and rehabilitated by him; now they help him work with other dogs. Slick seems to very much enjoy this new experience and Cesar is very optimistic about how well they will do with the changes suggested.

Picture Perfect Pepper

Pepper, a Border Collie/terrier mix lives and works with Chris Nelson, a professional photographer. Chris and his business partner, Scott Smith, are concerned about Pepper's territorial nipping and barking at clients when they enter the studio. This behavior has to be stopped or Pepper is likely to eventually bite someone. Pepper is very well-behaved on their daily walks, but in the studio it's a different matter. Cesar instructs Chris to teach her to sit quietly near the door while he answers it. Cesar demonstrates how to take control of their territory instead of letting Pepper "own" it. Chris must assume a more dominant, pack leader attitude within his home and studio like he does outside on walks in order to control Pepper's dominant behavior.
