Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that From Wags to Riches with Bill Berloni is a reality show featuring animals being rescued, cared for, and trained for the entertainment industry. Sometimes an animal or two becomes mildly aggressive, but no one gets hurt, and most of the time everyone's just having fun. It's family-friendly, but younger or more sensitive viewers may find the occasional image of critically ill rescue dogs upsetting.
Is It Any Good?
The fun and family-friendly series shows how this real-life Dr. Dolittle takes his passion for animals and turns it into a showbiz career. It also details some of the ways he helps rehabilitate animals who are rescued from very difficult situations so they can go on to live happy and healthy lives in loving homes. Techniques used to train and handle the dogs for high-level performances also are shown.
It gets a little crazy, and you have to wonder how these folks don't lose their minds to the noisy chaos that constantly surrounds them. But Berloni's talent, along with the love and respect he has for creatures big and small, is evident as he works with and cares for them. It's difficult not to find this show, and its star, appealing.
