A&E Network is celebrating man’s best friend this summer with the return of competition series “America’s Top Dog” and the premiere of a new series, “An Animal Saved My Life.”
The two-hour premiere of “America’s Top Dog” begins Tuesday, June 29 at 8 p.m. ET/PT. “An Animal Saved My Life” premieres with back-to-back episodes on Tuesday, July 6 at 9pm ET/PT.
Bringing together working dogs, K9s and “underdogs,” two new back-to-back seasons of “America’s Top Dog” take the competition to the next level with a new course and more breeds than ever before. In each one-hour episode, “America’s Top Dog” features furry friends alongside their handlers facing off on a massive canine obstacle course designed to test their speed, agility, teamwork and trust as they navigate a series of challenges over two rounds of competition.
The winners of each of the three classes face-off head-to-head to determine who is that week’s Top Dog. Each week, the winning team will receive a $10,000 cash prize as well as an additional $5,000 to donate to the animal charity of their choice. In the final week of competition, the winning teams return for the ultimate face off for the title of “America’s Top Dog” and an additional $25,000.
