A Washington, D.C.-area rescue dog named Lucky and his owner, Kris Kiser, will appear this season on the Emmy Award-winning “Lucky Dog” television show that airs Saturday mornings on CBS as a part of the ‘CBS Dream Team, It’s Epic’ block of programming. They will make their show debut November 7.
The “Lucky Dog” show follows animal trainer Brandon McMillan, who rescues hard-to-love, out-of-control, untrained and unadoptable dogs. McMillan turns these pooches into perfect pets. In the end, a lucky family will adopt an even luckier dog, making each episode an adoption story that warms the heart.
Kiser, president and CEO of the Outdoor Power Equipment Institute (OPEI), and his adopted dog Lucky, the “TurfMutt,” are on a mission to educate viewers on ways to create environmentally responsible living landscapes that families and pets can enjoy.
Lucky the “TurfMutt” is a real live superhero who serves as the “spokesdog” for the OPEI Education & Research Foundation’s TurfMutt environmental stewardship and educational program by Scholastic, for children in grades K-5. The national program has reached more than 62 million children, educators and families, since 2009, showing them how they can “save the planet, one yard at a time.”
“Lucky and I are very excited to participate in the ‘Lucky Dog’ television show,” said Kiser. “I met many families living in California as part of taping the show, and was able to visit their yards and provide tips on how to make a living landscape a home for their new pups.”
Kiser continued, “It’s not just about having a lawn for your dog and your kids at all costs. It’s about having the right kind of yard, including a lawn, for the environment you are living in today.”
