Show Dogs

SHOW DOGS is a behind-the-scenes look at the competitive, quirky world of show dogs in the new, original docu-series SHOWDOGS MOMS & DADS, a follow-up to last year’s engrossing hit series SHOWBIZ MOMS & DADS.


Five unique families from around America feature in the series and each family has the human parents revolving around their canine children.

For millions of dog owners nationwide, competing in dog shows is a labour of love… love of a particular dog, love of building a better breed and love of beating the competition.

SHOWDOGS MOMS & DADS reveals the struggles, the sacrifices, the thrills of victory and the disappointment of defeat the owners and their dogs face each weekend as they compete in shows across the country. With dogged determination, owners juggle careers, family and bank accounts to see their pooch crowned top dog.

“SHOWBIZ MOMS & DADS hit such a nerve with viewers when it premiered last year that we wanted to explore a similar idea with a new subject,” says Lauren Zalaznick, President of Bravo. “SHOWDOGS MOMS & DADS seemed like the perfect avenue to take given the way many people obsess over and often equate their pets as children. We also thought it would be fun to present a real behind-the-scenes look at the world of dog competitions where the claws often come out and the fur flies.”

And that’s just among the owners…
