LANCASTER, S.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Premiering September 30th, the fifth season of the award-winning series Lucky Dog will continue as part of the Saturday morning CBS DREAM TEAM, IT’S EPIC! Line-up. The weekly half-hour series, which will air on the CBS Network over a 52-week broadcast schedule, continues to be hosted by animal trainer, Brandon McMillan. Since its premiere in 2013, Lucky Dog has won two Daytime Emmys, two Parent’s Choice Awards, and five Telly Awards.
Emmy Award-winning host and animal trainer Brandon McMillan works with animal shelters across the U.S. to save one dog at a time, as he rescues lonely, unwanted dogs living without hope. Then, back at Brandon's training facility known as the Lucky Dog Ranch, he goes to work on the seemingly impossible task of turning the frightened pooches into perfect pets. Shows include visits to veterinary clinics, emphasizing the veterinarian as an integral partner in the life-long human animal bond. In the end, a lucky family will adopt an even luckier dog, making each episode an adoption story that warms the heart.
“We are very blessed and excited for the opportunity to support Brandon in finding loving homes for these dogs, in addition to highlighting the importance of veterinary care,” said Todd Henderson, DVM, President and CEO of Nutramax Laboratories Veterinary Sciences, Inc., the maker of COSEQUIN®. “For our company, it’s about more than just manufacturing quality products. We are dedicated to helping animals and committed to veterinarians caring for these animals all around the world.”
