Turning the tables on humans who always pick their pets, the show has the dogs deciding where and with whom they live (with a little help from a panel of pet experts!). The dog will spend 24 hours in each of 3 homes, playing and participating in various activities, ultimately deciding which family to call its own.

Character Bio


As the Emmy award-winning head writer for Late Night with David Letterman, Merrill Markoe created "Stupid Pet Tricks". But before her life as a humorist, Markoe worked as an assistant professor of Art at the University of Southern California where, while teaching Freshman Life Drawing, she tried as hard as she could to talk sorority girls in to taking time out of their busy tanning schedules to attempt a couple of charcoal sketches of nude models. When this turned out to be futile, Merrill herself began auditing all kinds of classes at the USC Film School, just to insure that, under her watch, someone was learning something. A year later she abandoned her art-teaching career and, much to the surprise of everyone she knew, began writing for television. She would go on to write for Newhart, Moonlighting and Sex in the City. Besides television writing she can count among her many accomplishments: on-air reporter, radio show host, guest-starring actress, and author. Markoe has penned six books including "What the Dogs Have Taught Me (and other amazing things I've learned)" and "The Day My Dogs Turned into Guys."
