Infotainment broadcaster Nat Geo Wild executive VP, GM Geoff
Daniels announced that the network has greenlit the 16-part
series Alpha Dogs, which follows the training behind a special
elite force of K-9s dedicated to serving our country.
produced by Jack Osbourne and Rob Worsoff of Schweet Entertainment,
LLC, each 30-minute episode gains exclusive access to the
kennels and trainers at Indianas Vohne Liche Kennels,
one of the largest police-dog training facilities in the US.
Alpha Dogs have jumped out of helicopters to capture Osama
Bin Laden and have tracked Saddam Hussein. Theyre in
police departments, the Secret Service and every branch of
the military. Now Nat Geo Wild follows their stories
from first bite to finding the bomb.
said, Alpha Dogs will focus on these highly trained
dog heroes that have muscle and smarts. Our viewers will love
to see the incredible drills and exercises the dogs undergo,
follow the instruction process with their dedicated trainers
who carry top security clearances, see the application in
the field for military and police units, and even watch the
fun they have playing fetch on their days off.
said, We are excited to partner with Nat Geo WILD on
this project and show everything from examining how the dogs
are trained to detect drugs, weapons and improvised explosive
devices to finding a hidden cell phone in a prison cell, to
focusing on other real-world situations in everyday communities."
