dog whisperer'Dog Whisperer' Week
(Sun., 8PM, National Geographic)
It's a dog eat dog world out there, but Fall Out Boy rocker Pete Wentz found that before the recent birth of his first child, his bulldog Hemingway was taking the cliché a bit too literally.

Wentz and wife Ashlee Simpson called on Cesar Millan to help them quash Hemingway's building aggression, after they bought a new bulldog puppy -- Rigby -- to provide Hemingway with a pal, only to see the elder dog attack Rigby.

Cesar, in an episode that kicks off the annual 'DW' Week, teaches the couple a few simple tricks that will ensure their household is peaceful, and more importantly, safe, for their new son Bronx Mowgli.

Too bad Cesar couldn't have talked them out of that baby name ...
