Just what you were looking forward to! Another reality show... this one with dogs and their owners. Professionally and home-trained dogs will compete against each other for the title of the Greatest American Dog in CBS's summer line-up of new reality shows.
Casting calls for dogs and owners were open to any form of dog talent. Thus, show dogs, agility dogs, talking dogs, hunters, obedience dogs, and musical dogs were all invited to the calls. AKC breeds and mutts were all welcome. With such a wide casting call for the Greatest American Dog (the second working title), no telling what dog talents the first few shows have lined up!
The dogs and owners selected to appear on the Greatest American Dog will live together for the duration of the show (or until eliminated). They will compete against each other in a variety of training challenges, provided by the show, that will focus on the abilities of the trainer to ready the dog for each competition.
The Greatest American Dog, or a similarly named show, will debut on Thursday, July 10, 2008 at 8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT. The winner will get $250,000 to blow on steak, bones, and squeaky toys!
That's the buzz for today!
