Puppy progress tracked in BBC Two series

12 Puppies And Us: The Next Chapter will follow a dozen families across Britain who have just become puppy owners, as they navigate their first difficult, but also joyful, few months together.

The series will look at both adopted rescue and responsibly-bought puppies, that face a range of behavioural challenges a new puppy can present, from the first ever walkies to toilet training fails.

From flavour-of-the-month breeds such as Whippets and Daschunds, to dogs who provide specialist services and care, this series will explore how to raise a puppy from cradle to adolescence and on to adulthood.

“The recent lockdown has seen a surge in interest from people wanting to take on a puppy and from a really diverse range of families and backgrounds. From tiny dogs like the Chinese Crested Powderpuff to Great Danes, people are looking into some very different breeds, so it will be intriguing to see how each family deals with the challenges of their particular pup. And they’ll be growing up in dramatically different environments – from city flats to open farmland.

“It will also be fascinating to be able follow up on the pups from previous series to see how they have developed over two years. There will be some recurring bad habits, but also some surprising transformations to marvel at.” – Dan Barraclough, Executive Producer, RDF

12 Puppies And Us: The Next Chapter will air across six-parts, produced by RDF Television.

The series will also re-visit some of the dogs who featured in 10 Puppies And Us that aired on BBC Two in 2018.
