This woman is an insane unprofessional....

With a fair number of years in canine rescue under my belt, I rank this awful, awful show just one notch (perhaps) above the WORST dog show on TV (the "Whisperer" charlatan), only because this one is not even pretending to train dogs. No, for this one it seems to be enough to put them in constant danger..., leadh laws at a national park? Ignore them! Dogs unsupervised in "playgroups" (HATE that concept!) of 20 dogs or more? It's ok, you can run in screaming from the next room when you hear a ruckus. I sincerely hope no one is usingthis awful, unprofessional idiot's business as a "what-to-look-for" guide when they need to board their dogs.... I'd say it should be used more along the lines of that film they showed us in Driver's Ed, with all the mangled bodies in head-on collisions, that was supposed to scare us into driving carefully....

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2 ):
Kids say (1 ):

There's no doubt that these pooches are pampered to the hilt, and the series plays like a canine Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous, with hundreds of furry clients running up yearly tabs of $5,000-plus. It's always fun to see how the other half lives, but you might want to keep your own four-footed friends out of the room while you watch so they don't get any big ideas about how their peers are spending their days.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
