The 13th Animal Planet Puppy Bowl, on February 5, will undoubtedly be stealing the the glory of another bowl game (we hear will be on television) with the cutest pups ever battling it out to be champions. But let’s be honest… when there’s cute puppies involved, we’re all winners. The training regimen for the Puppy Bowl is intense… with being adorable and spoiled rotten topping the list of what it takes to be a pup-lete.

Pedigree and Animal Planet joined forces to take you behind-the-scenes – these two videos get down and dirty to show you what it takes for a puppy to be a champion. The sneak peak will have you cheering for the pup-letes of Team Ruff and Team Fluff even before they hit the playing field.

Joining in on the Puptastic Training are NFL Hall of Fame wide receiver Jerry Rice and NFL quarterback Aaron Murray, two guys who know a little bit of what it takes to make it on the field. They know the importance of pup-lete training and are sharing how they help keep their dogs in tip-top shape as they gear up for Puppy Bowl Sunday!

The Animal Planet Puppy Bowl will be airing on Animal Planet on Sunday, February 5 from 3-5 p.m. EST (just in case you actually do want to watch that other bowl game!) but in the meantime, enjoy watching these tough pups get ready to rumble (and tumble…in adorable puppy play fashion!)
