Reality TV Goes to the Dogs
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.
