New Leash on Life
Comedian Joel Creasey and dog expert Laura V are on a mission to rescue pound dogs whose lives are on the line, train them up, and pair them with a family in need of a dog in their life.
Across the country, tens of thousands of dogs enter pounds each year for many different reasons. In some places, unclaimed dogs can be euthanised after just 7 days – resulting in thousands of healthy dogs put to sleep each year. Renowned comedian Joel Creasey teams up with leading dog behaviourist Laura V to reduce the number of dogs in pounds. Together they rescue, train and pair them with a family or person in need of a dog.
Over 6 heart-warming episodes, Joel and Laura work towards a mutual rescue, that sees a dog paired with a new family.
But this match can be complex, and it’s a two-way street. Laura must ensure the dog will work well with the family, and the family is the right home for the dog.
Though he’s a big dog lover, Joel has never stepped foot in a pound before and he has much to learn from Laura. A fish out of water, Joel quickly learns from Laura and works with the rescue dogs to prepare them for their new homes.
