As first announced at the Realscreen Summit, after seven years on National Geographic Channel in the U.S., the eighth season of Dog Whisperer with Cesar Millan is moving to its new sister net, Nat Geo Wild.

Also, the series’ 141 completed episodes will be moving over to the recently-launched network beginning in April. Episodes of the MPH Entertainment-Emery/Sumner Productions series will continue to run on NGC into the third quarter of 2011.

Millan will serve as EP on the new, 10-episode season, which is beginning production immediately for an early 2012 premiere on Nat Geo Wild.

“Cesar has built a global franchise around this series, and we are thrilled that he has decided to continue the series in the National Geographic family,” said Geoff Daniels, senior vice president, Nat Geo Wild and National Geographic Channels International, in a statement.
