Afraid of the Bark

Host Cesar Millan with Baby Girl, a Doberman, in the pool. Baby Girl is paralyzed by fear from many things in her environment, most often anything above her like open cupboards, balloons, planes, and trees.

When Suzie Dove Miles adopted a Doberman named Baby Girl, she thought the dog would quickly overcome its fearful behavior. But Suzie was way wrong. When Suzie brought her home, she wouldn't eat, crawled everywhere, shook at the slightest creak of the house and was terrified of open cupboards. Whenever there was a loud noise, Baby Girl would freeze in a catatonic state. Suzie is familiar with Cesar's methodology, and needs his expertise to bring this dodging Doberman back to being a real dog.
