Michigan woman and her dog Chewy to compete on ‘America’s Top Dog’

GRAND RAPIDS, MI – A Michigan woman and her dog Chewy will appear on season two of A&E’s canine competition series “America’s Top Dog.”

Chewy, a Pitbull, and St. John’s native Rachel Clark will appear in the all-new episode premiering at 8 p.m. on Tuesday, July 27.

The series brings together working dogs, K9s, and “underdogs” from across the country to compete for the title of “Top Dog” alongside their handlers on a massive canine obstacle course over two rounds of competition that test their speed, agility, teamwork, and trust.

Award-winning veteran studio and sports broadcaster Curt Menefee and actor and comedian David Koechner serve as hosts and will break down the action, while sideline reporter Rachel Bonnetta will interview teams down on the course.

Clark operates two Mid-Michigan kennels alongside Chewy, who serves as demonstration dog showing other pups how to behave. Their appearance on the show is the next chapter in their long partnership, which was put to the test in the past when Chewy was hit by a car.

“Chewy got hit by a car and went under both tires,” Clark said. “They had no idea what his injuries were, so I was fearing for the worst. I had no idea and was asking is my dog going to die. He fared incredibly well but did have to stay three days in an oxygen tank because he had such severe bruising to his lungs.

“That was just the worst thing that has ever happened to me. I can’t imagine a second without this dog, he’s my family, but he’s also my partner.”

Season two introduces a new format with head-to-head match ups, pitting a pup against another competitor in their class for an epic battle to prove who is best.

The winners of each of the three classes face-off head-to-head to determine who is that week’s top dog. Each week, the winning team will receive a $10,000 cash prize as well as an additional $5,000 to donate to the animal charity of their choice.

In the final week of competition, the winning teams return for the ultimate face off for the title of “America’s Top Dog” and an additional $25,000.
