Think of it as “The Odd Couple”, but with pets. Reality TV goes to the dogs (and cats) on Animal Planet’s Cat Meets Dog, debuting this fall!

Animal Planet’s new fall lineup has been revealed and has three programming themes: Fun, Heart and Wild. Entering this fall’s television lineup in the Heart division will be Cat Meets Dog, an intervention reality show that will show what happens when well-known frenemies, cats and dogs, are forced to live together and (gasp!) get along! (Sounds like this could fall in the fun category, too!)

Cat behaviorist Jackson Galaxy and dog trainer Zoe Stathis-Sandor will work together to ensure peace in homes here the resident cats and dogs just don’t get along. As both Jackson and Zoe have very different species they are specialized in, they will educate each other on their pet of choice, and perhaps even try to bring the other to his or her team. (Cat parents are cringing everywhere at the thought, we know!)

Galaxy will continue with his current Animal Planet show, My Cat From Hell, and he and Stathis-Sandor will combine their superpowers and experience to bring help to desperate families who need help with their fighting pets. The term ‘fighting like cats and dogs,’ will be lived out and tended to throughout the season, while the behaviorist and trainers try to keep the fur from flying.

Considering both Galaxy and Stathis-Sandor are heavily committed to their respective species, we imagine there may be some human claws coming out as well. All in good, fun, of course!

The day and times for Cat Meets Dog have not yet been announced but have been confirmed as part of the 2017-2018 fall lineup, so stay tuned for show details!
