precious puppies 1 x 60' 


PRECIOUS PUPPIES is the definitive documentary on puppies, showing the diversity of breeds, behaviours and antics that makes them such adorable creatures.

This one-hour special starts with the birth of nine delightful golden retriever puppies and follows them as they grow into endearing young dogs.

The seven dramatically different breeds of dogs are shown, from the non-sporting Poodles and Great Danes and British Bulldogs, to the working dogs like Welsh Corgies and Australian cattle dogs.  There are Chihuahuas, Bull Terriers and Dachshunds, to    Greyhounds, Siberian Huskies and Shar-Peis, Dalmations, Welsh Corgis and Shetland Sheepdogs to English Cocker Spaniels, Afghan Hounds and Pekinese.  Also starring are Dobermanns, German Shepherds, Collies and Jack Russells.

The programme shows bakeries that cater specifically for dogs, dog fashion shops, and puppies used as club mascots.  There are dogs trained to help the blind and search for drugs and suspicious mail, as well as sled racing dogs, Frisbee Dogs, Tricky Dogs and Dancing Dogs.

The programme will look at how smart puppies can be, as we follow the process of training dogs that go on to perform amazing tricks. There are amazing public performances in Russia and the USA.

PRECIOUS PUPPIES also follows the process of training and auditioning for TV commercials, magazine ads and movies, leading to their starring roles on screen.
The programme climaxes with a huge parade, led by Hollywood legend Bo Derek, where thousand of dogs are dressed up and led to celebrations, where dogs like the Pavarotti-singing puppy, breaks into melodic barks with its operatic owner.
