CBS Shows Lucky Dog films an episode at the Helen Woodward Animal Center

The Emmy-winning CBS show Lucky Dog filmed an upcoming episode at the Helen Woodward Animal Center in Rancho Santa Fe on Dec. 13.

Hosted by professional dog trainer Eric Wiese and his wife, social worker Rashi Khanna Wiese, Lucky Dog takes viewers on a journey to rescue previously hard-to-love, out-of-control and untrained dogs and make their futures bright. At Eric’s training center, with the help of Rashi, he embarks on the seemingly impossible task of turning rescues into loving pets with solid training methods that viewers can use at home to train. their own dogs. In the end, one lucky family will adopt an even luckier dog.

On December 13, Eric joined the center’s volunteers as they welcomed dozens of adoptable shelter animals arriving from overcrowded shelters across the country. Eric and the volunteers gave the dogs baths, veterinary exams and assessed their temperament for potential adoptions in Southern California. The show’s sponsor, Blue Buffalo, was also on hand to donate all the food needed to care for the animals that come through the center’s gates.

The “Lady” episode filmed at the Helen Woodward Animal Center will air February 12, 2022 on CBS.
