Nat Geo WILD's "Barkfest" Kicks Off on Friday #Giveaway #BarkFest




Looking for something to watch this Friday?  How about the inaugural BARKFEST, which kicks off on Nat Geo WILD, starting at 8PM?  You don't have to be a dog lover to enjoy a weekend (48 hours - May 15-17) of Pawsome Pooches, showing of their smarts.

To kick off the weekend long BARKFEST, Nat Geo WILD will premiere a three-part series, "Is Your Dog a Genius?," premiering at 10 PM ET/PT.  Viewers will be introduced to dog scientist Dr. Brian Hare, who will use his groundbreaking research to help dog owners better understand their canine companions. He'll introduce at-home games that assess both dog and human, as well as present extraordinary dogs with remarkable problem solving abilities. This interactive series will help dog owners everywhere unlock their dog’s true potential. I, for one, can't wait for this show, as I have always been curious about how smart my dog is.  Now, with the help of Dr. Brian, I will be able to find out. :-)

Here is more about this 3-part series, as well as other must see shows set to air during the upcoming BARKFEST kicking off this Friday on Nat Geo WILD -- so, be sure your DVR is set or you tune in for a wooftastic time. :-)  Sorry had to say that!
