The goal of The Lucky Dog Ranch is to provide the kind of experience that Owner, David Weiss was looking for when he had to travel and put his own dogs in a kennel. It quickly became clear that what dogs love is the ability to socialize and run and play.
BRANDON McMillan, who has been the host of CBS’ Lucky Dog for seven seasons, announced he was leaving the show in October 2020. The eighth season of the Emmy-winning show will see two new hosts replace Brandon.
Then What happened to Brandon on Lucky Dog Ranch? Brandon decided to part ways with CBS after he felt the show was not going in the same direction as he had hoped. In October, he took to Instagram to announce his exit from the show. “As the years went on big money started pouring into the show which meant more cooks in the kitchen making decisions.
After much success on the show, McMillan chose to leave Lucky Dog because he felt the show had moved too far away from its original purpose, turning into just another money-driven business.
Subsequently, Does Brandon Mcmillan still train dogs? Today, Brandon continues to train shelter dogs and place them with families. He was the host of the hit CBS show Lucky Dog, for 7 seasons until he left to pursue other opportunities such as founding the Argus Service Dog Foundation. He’s also the author of the book Lucky Dog Lessons: Train Your Dog in 7 Days.
Lucky Dog Ranch has helped hundreds of dogs.
“I started reading the statistics about the amount of dogs that are put down every year because they cant find homes — 1.5 million dogs are put down because they cant find homes,” he told Ellen DeGeneres in 2014. “And so it really set me on a different path. So I started rescuing these dogs, and I started turning them into movie stars and service dogs. These are great dogs; I just needed to give them a second chance.”
He has also worked with dogs of celebrities, including those belonging to: Andy Cohen, Ellen DeGeneres, Kate Hudson, High Hefner, Chris Hardwick, Don Cheadle, and James Caan. Article continues below advertisement
The dogs that come to Lucky Dog Ranch are completely immersed in their training, Brandon explained.
“These dogs eat, sleep, and breathe training,” he told Watch! magazine in 2019. “I compare dog training to martial arts. These dogs have to be black belts by the time they leave my ranch.” Article continues below advertisement
