    Animal Planet Ugliest Dog Contest !
    I was under the impression that animal planet was quiet a good program…..but how on earth can they come up with something like this……?

    Do we really need stuff like this? ….wouldn’t it be better to put out some useful educational stuff about Dogs…
    instead of a freak show?
    I know it is not the poor dog fault he is just being used![​IMG]

    its a bit of fun ffs!

    There are breeds I find ugly others adore, its just human nature to do so.
    The dogs get out and about and win a prize most times, good socialisation for owner and pooch

    Tbh Animal Planet is a channel and has many educational programmes. Dogs 101 is great and my kids love it. Infact over here it is one of our favourite channels and occassionally they have things like this but it is a light hearted show. I don't think it any more exploitation than dog shows IMO, and I like those too :)

    Does a dog care whether it wins that or Crufts?
    As long as the owners love them what does it matter

    I dont like those contests, but its just entertainment its a bit much to have a show entirely educational lol.
