    Thumbs up Alpha Dogs...

    ...anyone else enjoy this show on Nat Geo Wild? A couple of interesting characters on that show along with some well-trained dogs.

    Very neat show! I see similar characters at most of the local hunt tests.

    I was looking forward to the show, but after a couple of episodes, I'm very disappointed. A bunch of unprofessional knuckleheads making millions off government contracts. I realize it's reality TV and the producers encourage a certain level of "drama", but these guys look like complete jackasses. A friend of mine works at a military working dog kennel and told me that at one point they had quite a few dogs from that place and none were very good. They have since gotten rid of all but a couple of those dogs.

    It takes as long as it takes. Sometimes longer.

    I have been to Kenny's kennels and we have purchased several dogs from him. I have nothing bad to say about him or his business. My kids like the show, I have watched it a couple times and it seems pretty hollywooded up to me. Kenny is a hell of a trainer and definately knows what he is doing...

    If a show like that can make it, it makes me wonder if a show about HT's/FT's could make it. Show clips about training, trials, tests, nationals, etc. Behind the scene looks, etc.
    Somehow you'd have to work drama into the scenes because that sells!!
    This site could provide a good cast of characters!!
