Nat'l Geo renews 'Dog Whisperer'

Series starring Cesar Millan picked up for a sixth season

National Geographic Channel's popular "Dog Whisperer" has been renewed for a sixth season.

The Friday night staple starring dog guru Cesar Millan has been granted 30 more episodes, which will roll out sometime later this year.

"Cesar's passion and dedication to the well-being of all dogs is truly inspiring," NGC executive vp content Steve Burns said. "We could not be more excited about extending this important franchise on our network."

Last week, the Mexico-born Millan became a U.S. citizen. The show celebrated its 100th episode in the fall.
