This week, the 4 remaining recruits are challenged to bare their heart out as they get an eye-opening experience in an institution for the mentally challenged. Set to equip them with sensitivity, and compassion, some of the recruits felt their leash tightening. Their diverse personalities are challenged, releasing their vulnerabilities for the attack.
As the stakes get higher, the life in the pound proves not for the faint-hearted. While our recruits scramble for survival of the fittest, will they go for best in show or bow out of the competition?
With more than 25 years of experience working with canines, New York Times best-selling author and twice Emmy-nominated television personality Cesar Millan uses a philosophy of trust, respect and love to rehabilitate aggressive, frightened and neurotic dogs. While Cesar has earned a trusted reputation as an approachable yet unwavering authority in the field of dog behaviour and rehabilitation, it is the human education of how their behaviour - and more importantly their energy - affects their pets that has been the key to his success.
Beyond his achievements in television and publishing, Cesar reaches the masses through his various endeavours, including:
Ethan Loke is the first ever winner of Cesar's Recruit: Asia, and he's back again on the show, this time by Cesar's side, helping to train and assess the new recruits. Before winning Cesar's Recruit: Asia, Ethan worked as a legal executive, but he has since become a full-time dog trainer under his company, Urban K9, alongside his wife, Serene. Ethan's passion for dogs started at a young age despite not having owned a dog growing up, and it was during his two-year national service in the Singapore Police Force K9 unit that Ethan developed his dog-training skills. Ethan is a firm believer in the importance of the human element of dog training, and he's here to help guide the new recruits to become stronger individuals.
