If you’re a dog person (or just like to watch TV shows about dogs), you’re probably familiar with Cesar Millan, the “Dog Whisperer.” His hit shows, Cesar 911 and The Dog Whisperer have helped countless frustrated dog owners regain control of their unruly hounds.
Many have used his methods on their own pets to create a more orderly home. If you’re traveling to Albuquerque in February, you’re in luck! Not only is it easy to find a pet-friendly place to stay, but the man himself, Cesar Millan, is performing live at the Albuquerque Convention Center.
About the Show
Millan’s live show features Cesar’s famous dogs, Junior and Benson, and he will spend time showing off training secrets and tips, including demonstrations of different training techniques.
The show also features appearances from multiple dogs from local rescues. Millan will discuss what makes a dog’s transformation successful—and it’s not as obvious as you might think! Millan says that in order for a dog to really change, the dog’s owner must also change—being a proper leader of the pack, so to speak, will make all the difference when it comes to adjusting a pup’s behavior.
Pet-Friendly Fun in Albuquerque
If you’re in Albuquerque with your pooch, checking out Millan’s show is a perfect way to spend an evening–however, it should be noted that the event itself is not dog friendly, unfortunately! During the rest of your stay, though, you’ll have plenty of options for things to do with your dog.
If you want to bring man’s best friend with you for a meal, you’ll have luck at places like 5 Star Burgers, Chama River Brewing Company, El Pinto (which offers a dog-friendly beer!), Flying Star Cafes (which has “petios”), Gecko’s Gallery & Grill, Kelly’s, and many other eateries.
Want to check out an off-leash park? Don’t miss Bullhead Memorial Park, the Rio Bravo Off-Leash Dog Park, Santa Fe Village Park, or the Tom Bolack Urban Forest Park, to name just a few.
If you need to do some shopping, but don’t want to leave Spot at the hotel, you’ll have luck at the Antique Specialty Mall, BookWorks, Beeps, Sportsman’s Warehouse, Rustic Home, and many local pet stores including Pet Vet Market, PetSmart, and Three Dog Bakery.
