Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that, aside from exposing kids to the lavish lifestyles of pampered pets, there's nothing to worry about in this reality series. Young viewers will no doubt be as entertained as their parents will by the lengths to which some dog owners go to ensure their pets are happy -- parents should just remind kids that doggie acupuncture and fur-lined canine sweaters aren't for everyone. Young kids may also need some explanation about dog behavior (like playful biting or wrestling) and the staff's methods of bathing, grooming, and giving medicine to nervous dogs.
Is It Any Good?
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.
