CBS is hoping that dog lovers will want to tune in to see "Dogs in the City" (Wed., 8 p.m. ET on CBS). The new series follows Justin Silver, who is a dog trainer and behavioralist. He's also a stand-up comic, which means he has the dog know-how to make this show about dogs in New York informative and interesting, but he's also clever and engaging enough to be fun to watch every week.
The show is a clear homage to New York City and the pets who live there, according to The New York Daily News, but it's also about Silver showing how to manage those pesky canines in certain situations.
Most owners are on board and concerned about their pets' misbehavior, which made one of his cases in this premiere stand out. Elli's dog Charlotte has a tendency to try and attack her clients -- she runs a modelling agency. Dogs biting models, whose livelihood is based on their appearance, would seem to be a serious problem, but Elli seemed to take it in stride. She was barely concerned that her dog had this behavior, much to Silver's surprise.
The episode also spotlighted Beefy, who rode his skateboard to YouTube fame, and apparently let some of that fame get to his head. And while the solutions aren't as detailed as one might find, this show is more about atmosphere, the love of animals and the charm of Silver.
"Dogs in the City" continues Wednesdays at 8 p.m. ET on CBS.
