Episode featured segments:
The K9s of Orange County - During this segment, Joel will go to the homes of his clients, just as he did in his popular Animal Planet series “GOOD DOG U.” By helping real people in his former towns of Rancho Santa Margarita and Coto de Caza with their various training issues, viewers will gain valuable training tips to help them solve similar problems they might be having with their own dog.
Working Dogs - This segment will introduce the viewers to “prey drive,” a dog’s natural instinct to focus on and pursue prey. Viewers will learn how this inherent behavior can be used in a positive way to train their own pets to exhibit the agility, obedience and repeatable behavior found in working animals such as police dogs, drug dogs, service animals and others.
Animal Actors - In this segment the animals are the stars. Joel takes viewers behind the scenes to meet actual Hollywood animal trainers and their famous animal actor as they demonstrate training techniques that are used for work on TV and the big screen.
Cat Training – There are a number of people who believe that cats simply cannot be trained. This segment will offer valuable information on the training of cats. The viewers will learn to teach their cat an array of behaviors like sit, stay, and come. All of the cat training sessions will be shot from the Nevada Humane Society in their catteries with cats with no training that Joel has selected as pupils.
