Alpha Dogs Premieres on Nat Geo Wild February 8th

Pin It

A small screen salute to the heroic Spots who doggedly protect and serve our country, television viewers will sit and stay riveted to their sets when Nat Geo Wild unleashes Alpha Dogs on February 8th.

Executive co-produced by Jack Osbourne, the series offers a behind the scenes look at the one of the most elite police and military dog training facilities in the world– Vohne Liche Kennels (VLK).

Shining a spotlight on the intense training techniques used to create K-9/human tandems for every branch of the military, the Secret Service and law enforcement, viewers follow the fearless Fidos and their handlers as they learn to search buildings and cars for explosives and drugs, leap from helicopters and chase down targets, with the team at VLK going the extra mile to prepare their program’s graduates for any situation which they may face in the future.

Speaking about the series, Jack Osbourne stated “The K-9s you’ll meet in Alpha Dogs are serious animals, a perfect combination of muscle and smarts, trained at the highest level.

“If you met Kenny and team on the street, you’d never expect that this group of beer-drinking, motorcycle-driving, tattoo-covered guys from small-town Indiana would be some of the world’s finest law enforcement trainers. From the moment I met them and saw their operation, they blew me away.”

The first episode of Alpha Dogs, ‘Life and Death,’ premieres on Nat Geo Wild on February 8th at 9 p.m. ET, followed at 9:30 ET by the premiere of the second episode, ‘Bite Me.’ If you miss the episodes on the 8th, you’re not in the dog house, as both will air again on February 11th, starting at 10 p.m. ET.
