“Canine Intervention,” a new unscripted series debuting this week on Netflix and starring Oakland dog trainer Jas Leverette, isn’t the only TV show pegged to pooches and other adorable pets. Here are five of our favorites (and one more on the way):
1. “Dogs” (Netflix): This six-part, emotionally powerful documentary series features stories from around the globe about the remarkable bonds that develop between people and their pet pooches. You might want to keep a box of tissues handy.
2. “Pit Bulls and Parolees” (Animal Planet): With the help of former inmates, Tia Torres — founder and owner of the Villalobos Rescue Center in New Orleans — rescues and rehabilitates abandoned pit bulls and other dogs. Along the way, she seeks to dismiss the perception that pit bulls are the pariahs of the pet world.
3. “The Incredible Dr. Pol (Nat Geo Wild): At the center of this long-running reality series is Dr. Jan Pol, who has practiced veterinary medicine since the 1970s. The show follows him and his Michigan-based team as they tend to a wide variety of animals, including livestock. (Can also be streamed on Hulu).
4. “It’s Me or the Dog” (Discovery+): It’s the “Supernanny” for canines. With plenty of positive reinforcement, British dog trainer Victoria Stillwell helps to restore order in homes where pets are creating havoc. (Can also be streamed on Amazon Prime).
5. “Haute Dog” (HBO Max): Some of the nation’s top pet stylists complete in this offbeat dog-grooming show. Host Matt Rogers and a duo of judges provide hilarious commentary. (One episode includes San Leandro’s Andrea Delguidice).
Coming Soon: “Pooch Perfect” (ABC): Hosted by Rebel Wilson, this eight-episode series sounds a lot like “Haute Dog.” Dog groomers compete in a series of paw-some themed challenges. (Premieres March 30).
