With three kids and eight competing canines, the family will work closely with animal experts to find the right dog for their home and lifestyle. Through a series of challenges, the family must decide whether a dog stays or moves on to another loving home. Although every dog eventually finds a new home, only one can be Leader of the Pack with this family.

Man Land is a series where men get to be men.
