R&B superstar, Patti LaBelle, has called in Hollywood’s leading dog behavior expert to help her tame her wild pet, Nasir. The singer rescued the mutt four years ago when he was a puppy, but her love for the pooch turned to fear when the dog tried to attack her one day. LaBelle recalls, “I walked by one day and he really tried to get at me.”
The singer decided to call on TV’s Dog Whisperer, Cesar Milan, to help her tame Nasir for a new episode of his hit show on the National Geographic channel. On the show, which airs on February 2nd, Milan, who has helped many top stars control aggressive pets, says, “Nasir here is an insecure large-breed dog.”
Using his tried and tested techniques at his Dog Psychology Center, the dog expert managed to persuade his famous client to hand-feed her pet for the first time and then take him for a walk.
Update: Nasir is actually a South African boerboel, thanks to reader, Jen, for the factoid!
