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.

My kids have the DVR set to record dogs 101 every time it comes on...They love it. My daughter watches it and she is 5 BUT I am a dog groomer and she is accustomed to a lot of the issues talked about on the show. I also have a Doberman Search and Rescue/Tracking dog..so that is not a problem either...for us..lol

This title has:

Educational value
Great messages
Great role models
