Reality TV Goes to the Dogs

You wanted this? The latest thing in reality TV is Animal Planets’ extreme dog training program.  The working title for the show is “Fetch me a beer.”  Which of course is one of the tricks that a dog is being trained to perform. Zak George, the famous YouTube dog trainer, has been working with a film crew preparing the new Animal Planet show.  Some of the tricks he has been teaching the dogs are amazing, such as riding a bike.  Others are quirky, such as helping a human get a date.  But you can be sure they will all be surprising.

George boasts that teaching the dogs is easy, it is the people who are more challenging – “There’s nothing we can’t attempt to teach a dog,” he says.

Expect the show to premiere in October.
