Pit Bulls & Parolees

Pit Bulls & Parolees has no shortage of bingeable content, producing 18 seasons since its debut in 2009. This heartwarming show aims to break down misconceptions about Bully breeds and parolees.

The show follows the work of Tia Torres and the Villalobos Rescue Center (VRC), which was based in California before moving to Louisiana. The center is the largest Pit Bull rescue in the country, with many parolees working to help these misunderstood doggos. Pit Bulls & Parolees is educational, adorable, and easy viewing, so cuddle up with your pup and settle in for some wholesome content!

America's Top Dog

A&E is known for making binge-worthy TV, and it's on to another winner with America's Top Dog. America's Top Dog pits pro pups against each other in a series of competitions, including innovative obstacle courses and scent challenges to see who's the pick of the pack. 

The fastest fur-baby to complete all the challenges wins the title of "America's Top Dog," and their handler gets a sizable cash prize. America's Top Dog is super exciting, and you're sure to be amazed by some of the tricks these clever canines complete. The "pawfect" bingeable show for any pet parents that love shows like American Ninja Warrior.


Looking for a show that'll tug on your heartstrings? Netflix's Dogs is sure to have you reaching for the tissues on several occasions. Dogs explores the unbreakable bonds between humans and dogs worldwide and how our four-legged friends change our lives. 

Each 50-minute episode focuses on a different story, from a priest helping strays on the streets of Brazil to a Syrian refugee trying to smuggle his dog out of war-torn Damascus. Pet parents searching for a sobering series to binge will love Dogs.

Vanderpump Dogs

Vanderpump Rules and The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills rank as two of the most binged shows in recent years. Now, Lisa Vanderpump is stepping into the woofing world with Vanderpump Dogs. 

The show premiered in June 2021 and focuses on the Vanderpump Dog Foundation, a global organization that helps dogs in need and educates people about pet care practices. The foundation is famous for helping raise awareness about the Yulin Dog Meat Festival. Vanderpump Dogs focuses on the foundation's LA rescue center, its staff, and the latest adoptions.

Puppy Bowl

"Furget" the Super Bowl and binge the Puppy Bowl this February. Since 2005, the Puppy Bowl has invited dozens of shelter dogs from across the US to compete in their very own furry game of football. 

This year, Team Ruff will take on Team Fluff for the right to take home the Lombarky Trophy! The game itself is pretty loose and involves dogs moving toys between end zones. Adorably, pups can be penalized for violations like napping on the field and howling. The main aim of the Puppy Bowl is to help raise awareness about dog adoptions.

Scooby-Doo, Where Are You!

Come rain or shine, there are few dog-themed TV shows more comforting than Scooby-Doo, Where Are You!. The original run from the 70s consists of over 40 classic creature capers, which helped inspire over 50 years of Mystery Machine magic.

If you've watched all the old episodes hundreds of times, check out some of the more recent iterations of the gang, including Be Cool, Scooby-Doo and Scooby-Doo and Guess Who?.
