Barker College

Our roommate's dog, Dojo, could be a great dog -- if he didn't pee in the house every day. Every. Day. We love the little guy. But if we have to clean dog piss off the bed one more time, we might "accidentally" abandon him in the middle of the Sonoran desert.

But because we want our roommate to be a better dog owner (and because we don't want to be accused of animal abuse), instead we'll buy him a ticket to An Evening with Cesar Millan at Chandler Center for the Arts. During The Dog Whisperer's live seminar, the roomie will learn to see the world through Dojo's eyes, tapping into the dog's instincts and becoming the kind of pack leader who can teach fellow canines to pee in the designated areas instead of on the couch.
