Backseat Barkers

Our hilarious road trip comedy series, Backseat Barkers, follows a blended family of two twenty-somethings and their dogs. Watch as Sophie and Hugh, and their two dogs Fishstick, an unruly rescue pug and athlete trick dog Nana the Border Collie move in together and embark on a trip around Ontario. We were inspired by the ups and downs of dating with dogs and starting a family and the number of friends travelling with pets.

A road trip with a new partner can be challenging enough, but throw in a couple dogs who are opposites and comedic tension will ensue. Think the canine version of the Odd Couple or Friends on the Road.

The series shows the different breed characteristics and how important it is to do your research when choosing a pet. It also promotes adoption and tips on travelling with pets.
