The Show will take viewers on an emotional journey where vulnerable dogs go from abandoned… to adopted… to adored.

Network 10 head of programming Daniel Monaghan said: “We really are thrilled to be making our very own production of The Dog House. There is nothing more wonderful than watching a team of devoted matchmakers pairing homeless dogs with hopeful companions.
“The Dog House Australia is destined to be the most joyous and feel-good series of 2021.”
The show was announced at the Network 10 Upfronts 2021 along with new franchise Making It Australia.
Beverley McGarvey, chief content officer and executive vice president of ViacomCBS Australia and New Zealand said: “In 2021, our biggest franchises are returning along with premiere series Making It Australia, The Dog House Australia and The First Inventors. We promise a strong, consistent line-up of premium content for all audiences, across all channels and platforms.”
The new show will be a Network 10 production made internally.
