Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this series about "extreme" dog training is a fun choice for the whole family. Professional trainer Zak George takes on each new challenge with excitement and shows respect and affection for every animal he works with -- and his success proves his claim that any dog of any age can learn new tricks. The show includes a host of useful training tips that viewers can use in training their own dogs -- and virtually no iffy content to worry about.
Is It Any Good?
A self-taught dog expert whose training videos on YouTube unwittingly launched his career, George has a natural affinity for canines that's obvious in all of his animal encounters. His respect for them translates into a positive training method that gets results for owners while keeping the dogs happy, which George makes clear is his top priority. This lighthearted show celebrates the bond between dogs and their humans and reminds us that amazing potential exists in every animal.
Families -- especially those with pups of their own -- will like SuperFetch's amusing take on the often-tedious training process. George doesn't shy away when his students just aren't up to the task at hand (or paw), but he's always ready with another idea for encouraging them to master their new skill. And his basic techniques are easily transferred to viewers' own needs, so families that watch just might be able to inspire their pets to greater usefulness (or at least obedience) at home.
