Blame the Owner – ‘Don’t Blame the Dog’?
A new series airs on BBC3 tonight at 9pm entitled ‘Don’t Blame the Dog’. Running for 6 weeks this unique series challenges young dog owners with bad attitudes to spend a week living with people who depend on dogs – some for their survival in extreme environments around the world and others who depend on them for their jobs.
In tonight’s episode Holly, who paints her dogs’ nails and puts diamantes on them, and Mikki, who is bite training his dog for protection, leave their dogs behind and travel to South Africa to spend a week with dogs that are trained to track down rhino poachers. Rhinos are endangered and one is killed by illegal hunters every day.
Sounds like an interesting experiment but will it really make any difference? The aim of the programme is that the experiences they have will help them re-evaluate their own lives and that of their pets and help them become better pet owners.
We at Puddle Pet Care will be watching tonight, will you? Be great to hear what you think of the programme.
