The Puppy Bowl players are untrained dogs, given their age, and that means that there's unavoidably a great deal of pooping on the field. Puppy Bowl exec producer Melinda Toporoff said the pups defecate as much as every 20 seconds at times, but it's easy to fix it all in post with careful editing. And she has no interest in working with camera-ready canines. “The less trained, the better,” she said. “That's what makes for adorable television in this case — if puppies are falling asleep on the field, we love it.”
Kittens are a big part of Puppy Bowl X. Internet sensation Keyboard Cat will o a cover of Bruno Mars' "Locked Out of Heaven" during halftime at Animal Planet's Puppy Bowl X.
Puppy Bowl X's devoted tailgaters camped out to enjoy the show.
Puppy Bowl referee Dan Schachner said there are never a set number of toys on the field, but revealed that the ones that get the most action are those that are the loudest or the closest to resembling sausages. As a point of habit, the Animal Planet team rotates toys just as frequently, if not more, than they rotate the puppies to keep the players stimulated.
A five-penguin cheerleading squad will keep the audience entertained during puppy breaks.
FLOTUS Michelle Obama and first dogs Bo and Sunny hosted a Puppy Bowl training camp Tuesday in D.C. to prep the athletes for the big game.
This year's telecast will feature 66 puppies, 30 untrained kittens, five penguins, three trained cats, eight tailgate party dogs, four service dogs and six hamsters.
Puppy Bowl stars to watch, from left to right: Cici, Aurora, Pong and Suri. As it has from the start, the show also incorporates an explicit message of promoting pet adoptions for rescue orgs. As of Jan. 20, all but two puppies have been adopted. All other animals have found homes, according to execs, and usually do by the time Puppy Bowl airs.
