Cesar Millan thinks millennials shouldn't be able to adopt dogs

By Troy Frisby, Buzz60

Cesar Millan thinks millennials shouldn't be allowed to adopt dogs.

In an interview with Femail, the 47-year-old star suggests millennials are getting pooches to fill the void because the new generation doesn't have kids.

MIllan notably has twenty dogs himself, as well as two children from his first marriage whom he doesn't have primary custody of.

Millan tells Femail that technology is getting in the way and millennials can't pay attention to one another, saying: "They are always on their phone and have no idea how to relate on a personal matter."

Millan also suggests young people who are serious about getting a puppy should slow their roll and foster one instead, telling Femail: "They've being given everything, how are they going to maintain a dog?"

Well, looks like millennials are going to have to settle for pet rocks, instead -- if they've ever even heard of them.
