The best children's TV shows to watch right now
"No job is too big, no pup is too small," hollers 10-year-old human pack leader Ryder as he gathers his troop of cheerful and resourceful pups to save the day.
This computer animation is probably already a favourite in most houses where an under five lives, but we really couldn’t write a guide about TV for youngsters without including this monster-hit of a show.
Set in Adventure Bay each pup has a special skill set and vehicle including Chase, a German shepherd police dog, accident-prone Marshall, a Dalmatian and fire dog, pilot Skye, a cockapoo, bulldog and construction expert Rubble, Labrador Zuma, a water rescue expert and Rocky a schnauzer/Scottish terrier pup who is a recycling expert and handyman.
Where to watch: Netflix (US and UK) and Channel 5 (UK)
Why watch: The pups are a great team that always work together to solve whatever problem they are faced with. It’s positive and cheerful with fantastic and fun doggy characters for toddlers to connect with.
Our under 5 says: "Rubble is my favourite because he drives a digger… and Marshall because he’s always falling over and he makes me laugh."
