“Super Pooches” Premieres on July 21 at 8 p.m. ET/PT
On Wednesday, July 21, TLC invites viewers to explore the fast paced, quirky, and often times stressful world of show competitions with the new special, “Super Pooches,” premiering at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
“Super Pooches” reveals what it takes to raise and train show dogs and takes an in-depth look at their dedicated and obsessive handlers. Cameras follow four handler teams as they pull out all the stops to ensure their dog ends up on top.
Some of these top handlers show dogs at a whopping 180 different shows a year, and tend to be on the road constantly. Keeping their dogs happy, healthy and perfectly groomed is their number one priority. “Super Pooches” captures all the behind-the-scenes dynamics of the business and the entertaining life on the road that each handler leads. While each of the teams intersect at the competitions, the pressure is on and drama ensues backstage as each of the handlers fight for the coveted prize.
SUPER POOCHES is produced by Departure Films for TLC.
