I came across this show for the first time today while channel surfing and could not have been more disappointed! The way the dogs were "trained" and treated while in the care of the daycare staff, and especially their "trainer" and "behaviorist" were terribly upsetting. As someone who has worked with dogs, and done a *lot* of training with dogs from all backgrounds, I was upset to see them using old school methods that have been proven to not be nearly as effective as more humane methods. There is certainly no need for "corrections" and the use of chain and prong collars on dogs that could very easily be trained and work without all the negativity. And on top of that, they let a dog who continuously started fights with other dogs back into daycare. This is not only irresponsible, but dangerous! I will highly discourage people to not watch this show, and hope that it does not get a second season. I only hope better, and more positive shows and treatment of our best friends will become more prominent soon.

Just finished watching the show for the first time and have never been more disgusted with dog owners. You should be embarrased. How can you call yourselves trainers? They went camping at Mt Constitution (2007) and let the dogs run loose all over the campground. I have never seen more irresponsible dog owners in my life. I would never bring my dogs to you for any reason, would you bring your children to a daycare whose owners had kids that were that ill behaved? We camp with our dogs, in Washington state, and have never had a complaint from rangers or other capmers. We currently have Akitas, but have camped with wolves, pitbulls and german sheperds. Most the time they don't even know we have dogs in the campsite.

Please see my web site at www.floaapetdishes.com to promote my eco-friendly pet dishes. These would be great for day care
situations.

Thanks,

I ran across your show for the first time today. I have 2 dogs-an Miniature Australian Shephard(4y/o) who is deaf and a Pomerian/Pekingese mix(1y/o). He looks like a tall Pomerian. Patches(Aussie)enjoyed watching the show today but Quincy(Pom/Pek) went absolutely WILD when I tried to change the channel and I tried more than once. He LOVED, LOVED when everyone went camping. He seems to pay more attention to the show when Sancho is featured. What an awesome show. You definetely have devoted viewers now!

I really enjoyed the show. (Unfortunately, it is a pain to register on WE. They ask too many questions that are none of their
business.)
The groomers/assistants on DDL were great. i would even leave my precious pup with them!

I work at a doggie daycare facility in Scottsdale, AZ called Doggie Domain. I can't even begin to tell you the number of times I have laughed so hard I cried! I adore dogs and getting to see their antics up close and personal is the ideal job for me -- can't wait to see the television show!

Sounds great ! I can't wait to see the show. All dogs should be pampered that way.

I will be watching the new series. I love anything to do with dogs. I use to watch the reality show with dogs on the animal channel. I missed it after it left.
