"I double dog dare you not to turn to mush watching Puppies vs. The World," said Geoff Daniels, executive vice president and general manager, Nat Geo WILD. BarkFest is always the highlight of our year because it's such a fun and inspiring celebration of man's best friend. Sometimes it's adorable, sometimes a tearjerker, always warm and fuzzy. I paw-mise."
Puppies vs. The World
For puppies, it's a brand-new world out there, full of obstacles, setbacks and amazing new experiences. We challenge puppies to do the simplest tasks like drink water, climb stairs and escape the clutches of a toddler, and the outcome is uproarious misadventure. Along the way, we include quick and fascinating facts about puppy development and peek in on The Puppy House, which is just what is sounds like: a house full of puppies!
