On Location Filming for Who Let the Dogs Out

We just wrapped major filming for season one of the Animal Planet TV show 'Who Let the Dogs Out'. The season finale was shot at Universal Studios in Hollywood, California. Universal's City Walk always has a great crowd, but it was especially busy that day while we were shooting. As judges Ron Davis, Karen Cobb, Lexi Beerman, Eric Presnall and Jimmy Van Patten  assembled on set, excitement grew in anticipation of what the judges would see from the dog auditions that day.
One of my favorites was Jasmine of the blog 'My Favorite Pup Jasmine'. You may have seen some of her awesome videos on YouTube. She is a an internet sensation, thanks to her mom CJ who I had time to briefly meet while at the taping that day!
It was so nice to finally meet CJ in person. I'd only ever chatted with her online through Twitter, where she is known as @MyFavPupJasmine and has a great following there too. I'm so psyched that Jasmine was featured on one of the early episodes of Who Let the Dogs Out. All she did was submit a video online and in no time at all the show producers contacted her to compete in the season one finale competition.
If you have never been on a hot set of a TV show taping it is always interesting to observe what goes on behind the camera- literally. There are all kinds of people running around handling all the details from lights, cameras, and props to the canine and human talent. The live audience members need to be hushed, and coached on how and when to respond with applause, etc. Having a live audience also makes the taping interesting because in many way the dogs auditioning pick up the vibe and respond to the audiences cheers. I'm enjoying being a part of the production team for the Who Let the Dogs Out TV show. If you have not seen it yet, set your DVR to record it, Saturday mornings on Animal Planet. If you love animals I think you'll really enjoy it.
