New to Australian ABC 2 is a show called “Don’t Blame the Dogs”. The twelve part series presents dog training from a different point of view which makes it more entertaining than another Dog whisperer copy show. The last show for the is a great concept to experiment taking two bad dog owners out of their British homes and dumping them in the middle of Alaska with a husky sleigh team. The Alaskan team makes all the dog food and works a hard regime to ensure they have a winning sleigh team. The dogs are a mix of Husky and hound. I’m not sure what sort of hound – some of them look like hunting hounds, some look like the American Carolina, and of course some the husky. They sound like the American Carolina. We use to have a beautiful Carolina called Taylor who could also run and run and run and…
The TV Show Dont Blame the Dogs is actually quite hilarious. It’s great to see humans ‘being trained’ rather than it being about training the dogs. The fact that they are preparing prize winning dogs in a very cash competitive environment adds to the Brits stress and of course the shows entertainment drama.
Previous episodes can be watched online and headlines are: Lost Dogs Home, Melbourne Australia; Sheep Dogs, Australia; Army Dogs, Canada; Anti Rhino Poaching Dogs, Africa.
If you’re household needs a bit of hard yakka reality it’s definitely worth the watch. You’ll soon realise how lucky our urban dogs have it, and how easy it can be for us to take of them. More information is at ABC 2 or on BBC 3:

Superfetch dog tv shows features on the Bio Channel. It’s a 30min tv show that visits dog lovers in there home or working dogs to feature their dog training escapades and of course it’s about dogs in general. With the help of pet trainer Zak George dog owners learn the tricks of the dog training trade. Zak has the most beautiful dog training partner – Venus who assist with dog training stages. Starting with simple tasks like fetching the tennis ball and building up to focusing on finding the TV remote! How handy would that be? Although Leroy has a tendency to drool too much, and Maddie would most likely want me to start throwing it for her. Of course we have noticed that a lot of the dogs on Superfetch would look so much funkier with a designer dog collar or Leroy Madison designer dog lead.
If you are one of those people that have a gorgeous dog to help you pick up possible dates at the park, then Zak & Venus will take you paw by paw through some sneaky ‘i’m so cute moves’ up to having your dog jump up on your back & shoulders and pose there! OK, so sometimes the show is more focused on dog tricks than dog training and can get a bit silly, but it is fun to watch dog owners embarrass themselves on national tv. Overall Superfetch is a lighthearted and fun dog training TV show. However for the more serious enthusiast looking for some amazing breakthroughs with aggressive dogs, or anxious dogs we still highly recommend Cesar Milan the one and only great Dog Whisperer.
Superfetch features on the BIO channel on Saturdays afternoon, approximately 5.30 in the afternoon. It was originally produced by Animal Planet so will repeats can sometimes be found there. At this stage it’s unknown whether more seasons of this lighthearted dog training tv show will be made. We’ll keep an eye out and let you know if it’s being released again soon.
