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.

I remember this, it is no surprise it only lasted a couple of episodes.

I LOVE dogs, but this was just garbage. The tricks the dogs did were dumb, and did not make sense. It was just boring in general to watch. The hosts were annoying, and there was nothing good about it at ALL. Like I said, no surprise that it only lasted a couple of episodes.

Good Show

This should be like TV-Y instead of TV-PG.

    Hilarious and offbeat, but humor is pretty grownup.
