Begins Friday, April 14 at 8PM ET/PT on Nat Geo WILD

          “BarkFest” weekend is a celebration of our furever friends. The network turns up the cuteness factor with new specials “Puppies vs. The World,” “Boss Dog,” along with serving up fun dog-focused episodes of “Cesar Millan’s Dog Nation,” “Pet Talk” and “The Incredible Dr. Pol.”

         “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.”


Highlights include:
Puppies vs. The World
Premieres Friday, April 14 at 8/7c

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!

Boss Dog
Premieres Saturday, April 15 at 9/8c

As one of Los Angeles’ top dog trainers, Stevo Henderson is on a mission to help dog owners achieve their perfect dog through his innovative training methods and uncanny understanding of canine behavior. Stevo doesn't just train dogs — he saves relationships through his coaching and assured leadership. Watch Stevo work through struggles with owners, help dogs that others have given up on and ultimately celebrate small and large victories together.
