FIGHTING LIKE CATS AND DOGS IS ALL TOO REAL ON ANIMAL PLANET'S ALL-NEW SERIES "CAT VS. DOG"
New Series Produced for Animal Planet by Magical Elves Featuring Cat Expert Jackson Galaxy and Dog Expert/Trainer Zoe Sandor Premieres Sat. Nov. 11 at 10PM ET/PT
When cats and dogs live together under the same roof and chaos ensues, lives can be turned upside down and households torn apart. In CAT VS. DOG, cat expert Jackson Galaxy (My Cat from Hell) and dog expert/trainer Zoe Sandor provide support, direction, key insight and much needed help to families seeking to establish peace between dogs and cats in turbulent homes. CAT VS. DOG premieres Sat., Nov. 11 at 10PM ET/PT.
In each episode of CAT VS. DOG, Jackson and Zoe meet pet owners and witness first-hand the dog and cat behaviors negatively impacting their home life. Jackson and Zoe determine the behaviors that need to be addressed by both humans and animals and then they create a long-term plan so cats and dogs can live happily together. Their plans include daily routines and procedures to be carried out over several months with the goal of conflict resolution to create a home where cats and dogs can get along.
"We are inspired by Jackson and Zoe's ability to identify key behaviors between cats and dogs and the skill at which they can also train humans to correct their behaviors in these conflicts. Jackson and Zoe are a delightful team to watch and a welcome addition to our Saturday night lineup," said Patrice Andrews, General Manager of Animal Planet.
Throughout the season, CAT VS. DOG reveals some of the most tumultuous situations both Jackson and Zoe have ever encountered. Some of the cases this season include: a couple unable to move their relationship forward because their dog and cats can't stand each other; best friends whose living situation is threatened if their cat and dog can't get along; a terribly divided family of four, each with a different opinion on who is at fault in the contentious relationship between their beloved dog and family cat; and an owner whose solution to her three dogs terrorizing her cats is to build a rooftop cat sanctuary complete lawn chairs and a library for her own enjoyment.
CAT VS. DOG is produced for Animal Planet by Emmy Award-winning production company Magical Elves Inc. For Magical Elves, Dan Cutforth, Jane Lipsitz are Casey Kriley are the executive producers and Rebecca Hertz and Allison Schermerhorn are the showrunners. For Animal Planet, Dawn Sinsel serves as senior executive producer and Paris Peckerman is production coordinator.
