Jack Osbourne Producing Alpha Dogs for Nat GeoJack Osbourne and Rob Worsoff of Schweet Entertainment, LLC will be executive producing the 16-part series, Alpha Dogs, for Nat Geo WILD. The series will go behind the scenes into the training of dogs who are part of a special elite force helping to protect the U.S. These highly trained canines were used to help capture Osama bin Laden and were instrumental in helping to track down Saddam Hussein. They’re also important members of police departments and the Secret Service, and Alpha Dogs will be providing viewers with an exclusive peek into their training programs.
The episodes will be 30 minutes each and follow trainers at Indiana’s Vohne Liche Kennels, “one of the largest police-dog training facilities in the country.”
Nat Geo WILD Executive Vice President and General Manager Geoff Daniels explained the show’s emphasis in the official press release announcing the series: “Alpha Dogs will focus on these highly trained dog heroes that have muscle and smarts. Our viewers will love to see the incredible drills and exercises the dogs undergo, follow the instruction process with their dedicated trainers who carry top security clearances, see the application in the field for military and police units, and even watch the fun they have playing fetch on their days off.”
Executive producer Osbourne added, “We are excited to partner with Nat Geo WILD on this project and show everything from examining how the dogs are trained to detect drugs, weapons and improvised explosive devices to finding a hidden cell phone in a prison cell, to focusing on other real-world situations in everyday communities.”
