They might look cute and cuddly, but New Zealand’s working dogs have put in the hard yards to become more than just a fluffy face.
Dog Squad Puppy School, a spin-off from TVNZ 1’s long-time favourite Dog Squad, shows the contrasting traits, personalities and skills required from each breed in order to be trained to become a dog with a job.
The series follows the journeys of puppies from the police and biosecurity, along with elite service organisations, mobility dogs and blind and low vision guide dogs. We go back to the beginning and observe some of the jaw-droppingly clever, and yes, adorable puppies you’ll ever see, as they leave their rough and tumble siblings to begin their journey to become working dogs.
