I actually like the look of this show, however if I feel that animals were treated cruelly then the matter will change.

With you there Bert1, apart from some News items 99% of TV is crap as far as i am concerned as it is only there for the Couch Potato's

I watched it and while I did see a dog laying down and the wagging tails of a couple of others, I also saw a very upset Shepherd barking and snapping at the cage. How much 'winding up' was done to provoke the dogs into a reaction? That's something we didn't really see apart from the pathetic squeals of some of the contestants.
and with the General Public's opinion on dogs these days, it won't have done dogs, especially big dogs like GSD's, any good at all. This was all done for tacky and distasteful entertainment purposes.
I also found the use of rats unnecessary. Keith Duffy's description of them was ignorant and predictable.
I'd rather look at a rats face over his any day.
The programme is awful,

A completely pointless show in my opinion.

Lets not forget that Police Dogs are left locked in cages in vans etc at times. My daughter was lucky enough to win a Police visit to the mounted section and we had to walk past the dog section to get in. The dogs where in a van with cages on top of one another (I presume they had a ledge between them) and the dogs where going mad as they could see there training field. The cages where a lot smaller than the cages used in the tv programme and I dont believe the the police could miss treat animals .

Tilly you say that some dogs were fine but point out ONE that was upset and say how much winding up was done to the DOGS ???

Fair enough if you think the show was pointless but lets not get in the animal cruelty brigade thing.

of course it was cruel and utterly irresponsible of ITV to be using any breed of dog in this fashion.

errrm have you forgotten about the policeman that let his 2 dogs fry in the heat of last summer.

Never watched it, had a feeling it would be a crap show anyway, but everyone to their own. These days the use of animals in film and TV production has to follow a strict code of practice, whatever the dogs got up to in the making of this programme would have been under the guidance of their trainers, at the end of the day, the dogs were acting and probably making a better job of it than their human counterparts.


You don't think Lassie really had 3 arrow's sticking in her while crawling back to the wagon train do you. wink

Tilly, I still dont see how you can say of course it was cruel ?

Also I mentioned about police dogs and again you use 1 example where 1 police officer was totally out of order, I am guessing you are a dog owner and I guess if I suggested that all dog owners are disgusting due to the amount of dog mess on our pavements you would point out that we should not tar all dog owners the same. The same also applies to police oficers.
