Cesar Millan brings live tour to Canada for the first time

Oprah Winfrey, Scarlett Johansson, Will Smith and Nicolas Cage have all had their dogs trained and balanced by TV sensation Cesar Millan. Cesar Millan has gained a dedicated following as host of his Emmy-nominated series ‘Dog Whisperer’, and now fans and dog lovers across Canada have an opportunity to witness Cesar Millan’s talents first hand as he brings his enlightening and hugely entertaining live show to Canada for the first time.  Cesar Millan will have audiences spellbound as he shares his amazing insights on dog psychology, and how people can inadvertently play a role in their dog’s “behavioral issues”.

With ‘Cesar Millan LIVE’, Cesar uses state-of-the-art multimedia accompanied by dogs and their owners to illustrate his unique concepts. During the first half of his live show, Cesar teaches the audience about how the everyday things we do in our homes, can grow into behavioral issues. He also offers invaluable tips and tools to help your dog be calm and balanced while at home. The second part of ‘Cesar Millan LIVE’ focuses on the dog park – Cesar demonstrates the importance of energy and leadership. Over the course of the show, Cesar will have audiences seeing the world through their dog’s eyes and his “fulfillment formula” will change their relationships with their dogs forever.

“What amazing places dogs are taking me to,” Cesar says. “If you had told me when I was growing up in Mexico, that one day I would be traveling the world with my own live show, I don’t think I would have ever believed it. I rehabilitate dogs and train people, so to be given the chance to share my talents to help dog owners become calm and assertive pack leaders with their dogs really helps me fulfill my vision of making the world a better place… one dog at a time.”

Last chance to visit the Royal London Wax Museum

Friday, September 17th, 2010

3748110383_70ee88aca8The Royal London Wax Museum in Victoria is closing it’s doors on September 19th, 2010.

This weekend is your last chance to visit the Royal London Wax Museum,  it is a journey into the pages of time. The museum documents a myriad of events through some three hundred historical personages from early to contemporary times. Through its objects, artifacts, likenesses of pivotal personages, scenarios and multi-media exhibitions, all visitors will have a meaningful opportunity to see history come alive.

The “World of Wax” originally opened in 1961 in a street level location of the Crystal Garden at the corner of Belleville and Douglas. Displaying some ninety figures, this attraction establish North America’s first exhibition of Josephine Tussaud wax figures from England. In April of 1971, Canada’s 13th Prime Minister, the Right Honourable John George Diefenbaker, officiated at the museum’s grand re-opening.

In Year 2000, the Royal London Wax Museum has an inventory of some 300 wax figures that have been sculpted in England, the most recent of which is “The woman of the Century”. Decades of enhancements have gone well beyond the simple accumulation of wax figures. The multi-faceted “World of Wax” experience has been magnified not only through audio-visual technologies, but also through complementing displays such as the Crown Jewels Theatre, the World War I Field Surgical Hospital Kit, the thousand year old piece of cedar, replica sword of Genghis Khan, and original opera chairs crafted in 1987 for the Prince and Princess of Wales.
