It was a bind straight out of “Seinfeld.”
Jerry Seinfeld was being tortured by a neurotic Dachshund. The comic legend had been so frustrated by his nutty mutt Foxy — who suffered from what he described as a “hating Jerry” problem — that he called in superstar dog trainer, Cesar Millan.
The sausage dog, one of two the comic owns, barked so manically every time Seinfeld walked into the room that he complained to Millan, “I’m loved by millions, and hated by one dog.”
Millan went to Seinfeld’s Upper West Side home — which he shares with wife Jessica and kids Sascha, Julian and Shepherd — to investigate and found the high-strung canine was terrified of Seinfeld.
“They were using the classic, typical approach,” Millan said. “His wife would cuddle with the dog (when it freaked out), which only nurtures the problem.”
The famed trainer — who shows his work with the dog on the first episode of the new season of his show, “Cesar 911,” which airs tonight on Nat Geo Wild — tells The News he solved the problem by using a leash to make the pooch move slowly toward Seinfeld.
