Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that while educational quality is scarce in this series -- which spotlights unusual pets and curious creature comforts -- there's equally little worrisome content for older kids and tweens. Some viewers might take issue with the owners' materialistic indulgence of their pets (buying their pups wigs, for instance, or spending thousands on a two-story, multi-room dog house), but overall the show is entertaining for families who enjoy over-the-top animal tales.
Is It Any Good?
If you're looking for substantial content that will make your family see the world and its animal inhabitants in a new light, this probably isn't the show for you. While you won't soon forget the pets -- and their often eccentric owners -- this series' sole aim is to entertain viewers with animal oddities.
Some of the stories have a heartwarming side (the world's ugliest dog stars in a book that reminds kids to look past appearances, for example), but overall you'll be struck by the owners' lavish pampering and our society's infatuation with unique animal tales. That said, there's nothing in the show that makes it worrisome for older kids and tweens, so it's fine for family viewing.
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.
