Shot in the middle of nature at Mathieu Lavallée’s canine training centre in St-Jean-de-Matha, this magazine-style show helps viewers to discover the true character of dogs in order to better understand our relationship with them. In each episode, we follow daily life in the centre and the dogs in training there. Over the course of the various seasonal activities that take place, Mathieu passes on his knowledge and experience. Accompanied by animal experts, he explores various topics that are often brought up in questions from dog owners, including aggressiveness, obedience, health, training, and nutrition. During the process, and thanks to his extensive hands-on experience with animals, Mathieu dispels some myths and tackles some popular beliefs.
