From teaching office administrators how to speak politely on the phone to law enforcement, to showing bail enforcement agents how to look for clues to track fugitives, this Dog the Bounty Hunter spin-off features Dog and Beth teaching folks across the country the kind of business savvy and street smarts that made them successful. They teach them the latest and safest ways to catch bail jumpers, but also underscore how important it is to treat the folks they are arresting with some kindness in order to gain their trust, help show the errors of their ways, and perhaps encourage them to become future clients.

Like its parent series, the show features lots of chases down dark alleys and hunts in and around tough neighborhoods. There's some gritty conversations about alleged assaults, kidnappings, and other crimes, too. But it is clear that the tough-talking, Bible-quoting Dog and no-nonsense Beth are offering their advice to honor their fellow bondsmen and agents, and to help them protect themselves from getting hurt and from financial ruin. The result is a series that's pretty rough around the edges, but that contains messages that are constructively positive.
