ALPHA DOGS

(Washington, D.C. – January 11, 2013) They hail from Europe, and respond to commands in their native tongue; they are members of every branch of the military, the Secret Service and law enforcement agencies worldwide; they have helped take down some of the most infamous terrorists in history; and they are suckers for a tennis ball. They are the K-9s of Vohne Liche Kennels (VLK), one of the premiere K-9 training facilities in the world, and together with the team that trains them they are an integral part of the war on terror.

Beginning Friday, Feb. 8, at 9 & 9:30 p.m. ET (and airing weekly Fridays at 9 & 9:30 p.m. ET), Nat Geo WILD’s cameras go behind the scenes with exclusive access to VLK’s elite trainers at their headquarters in rural Indiana, as they work around the clock to train these Alpha Dogs in the art of detection and assault. They do it all with one goal: serving our country.

Dangerous Encounters

(Washington, D.C. – December 22, 2010) From the bizarre to the elusive to the downright deadly, throughout his career herpetologist Dr. Brady Burr has risked life and limb to study some of the fiercest creatures on the planet – but never with technology like this. Armed with new technology, Brady is back with a new season, on a new network, as his Dangerous Encounters take him around the globe in the name of science and conservation.

Moving to Nat Geo WILD beginning Tuesday, January 4 at p p.m. ET/PT, Dangerous Encounters returns with five all-new episodes. Brady gets up close and personal with a monster fish’s lethal snout, puts three of the most aggressive shark species to the test to find out which has the deadliest bite and takes on one of the world’s deadliest snakes using a high-tech robot. And later in the season, Brady captures a massive croc that has terrorized a village in Africa, possibly killing dozens of people, and employs a powerful net gun to capture a two-ton hippo.
