Dog behaviorist Cesar Millan answers emergency calls from communities terrorized by unruly canines. Beckoned by the relatives, friends, neighbors or co-workers of someone whose four-legged menace has turned lives upside down, Cesar starts off with a briefing session, then evaluates both the pets and the owners through impromptu visits. After rehabilitation programs are set up, Cesar uses surveillance cameras to track progress and ensure a lasting solution. The final test comes when all parties gather together in the community: owners equipped with the knowledge and tools Cesar has provided, and dogs ready to prove they did learn new tricks.

“Flip This House”
Tensions often run high as real estate investors in Charleston, S.C., New Haven, Conn., San Antonio, Los Angeles and Atlanta buy homes, renovate them in record time and then try to sell them for a profit.
Following the housing market crash, time is the enemy as flippers race to renovate before prices fall even further. Real estate partners Peter Souhleris and Dave Seymour gamble on a strategy to give them an edge in a tough market: they design high-end, and they flip fast. There’s never a dull moment when Peter’s attention to detail gets in the way of Dave’s need for speed, but the end result shows this duo is at the top of their game.
“Flipping San Diego”
When the real estate market crashed, Southern California took the hit hard, with home prices dropping and investors running scared. Nevertheless, San Diego real estate investors Chief Denney and Chris Bedgood are buying, rehabbing and selling homes like nobody’s business. They know to make money they have to move faster, work harder and be better than anybody else in town, and with $250,000 invested in each project, there’s no room for error. These two high-octane flippers are determined to renovate San Diego’s neighborhoods by turning abandoned, bat-infested, moldy houses into SoCal dream homes.
