Making house calls in the far reaches of Northern Canada is a daunting task in the least, considering the houses may be separated by hundreds of miles. That challenge doesn't stop Dr. Michelle Oakley from performing her many duties as a veterinarian in one of the most rugged environments on Earth. In addition to running an animal clinic out of her home in Haines Junction, Yukon -- where she lives with husband Shane and their three daughters -- Dr. Oakley also operates a satellite clinic 150 miles away and is the on-call vet for the Yukon Wildlife Preserve, which is about 100 miles from Haines Junction. She also makes house calls, sometimes driving for long stretches through desolate wilderness to check on a patient. This series documents how Dr. Oakley juggles being a full-time vet, wife and mom, and does so with a sense of humor and devotion.
The "Dog Whisperer" is back, this time to answer emergency calls from communities terrorized by unruly canines. Renowned dog behavior authority Cesar Millan is beckoned by the relatives, friends, neighbors or co-workers of someone whose four-legged menace has turned lives upside down. In each episode, Millan meets with the whistle-blowers in a briefing session, then he evaluates both the pets and the owners through impromptu visits to the neighborhood locations to see dogs display their doggone behavior and watch how owners react. 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.
