Ubisoft Walks the Dog with Cesar Millan
SAN FRANCISCO - September 10, 2008 - Today Ubisoft announced that it will develop and publish a video game based on Cesar Millan's unique rehabilitation method to eliminate problem behavior in dogs. Designed for the Nintendo DS(TM) system and PC, Cesar Millan's Dog Whisperer(TM) is scheduled for release in fall 2008.
Cesar Millan's Dog Whisperer(TM) uses interactive games to teach Cesar Millan's world-renowned methodology and help owners understand how their dogs' minds work. The player is confronted with 40 different common dog issues and, using Cesar Millan's guidance, learns how to deal with each of them.
Best known as the charismatic host of "Dog Whisperer" on the National Geographic Channel since 2004, Cesar Millan has spent over 20 years working as a dog behavior expert and developing the "Power of the Pack," a unique methodology for fixing dogs' behavioral problems.
"Ubisoft's creative team has worked in close collaboration with Cesar Millan to create a game that successfully delivers his unique approach to dog behavior rehabilitation," said Christian Salomon, vice president of worldwide licensing at Ubisoft. "The player takes the role of Cesar Millan's apprentice and learns all about dog psychology through imaginative and entertaining gameplay."
"Ubisoft's team has done an amazing job turning the 'Power of the Pack' methodology into an interactive experience," said Cesar Millan. "The game is easy to play and offers many fun ways to learn rehabilitation techniques that can be applied to dogs in the real world."
