Paul O’Grady is set to present a third series of his programme For The Love Of Dogs.

The ITV series, also known as Pog Dogs, has been a hit with viewers since it launched in 2012, following the trials and tribulations of the canine residents at Battersea Dogs And Cats Home.

In the third series, dog lover Paul will be travelling to some of the organisation’s other animal shelters at Brands Hatch in Kent and Old Windsor in Berkshire.

As before, the programme will see Paul helping out with the treatment and training of the rescue dogs and trying to find them loving new homes.

Fans will also see some familiar faces back on screen – vets Shaun and Phil are set to return, as well as behaviour experts Ali and Brian.

Series two of For The Love Of Dogs averaged almost six million viewers per episode and won a National Television Award, as well as a TRIC Award.

ITV’s commissioning editor of factual Priya Singh said: “We’re thrilled to see the return of this much-loved series. Paul O’Grady, heartwarming stories, humour, emotion and of course, dogs – a magical combination.”

Paul O’Grady: For The Love Of Dogs series three will screen in the autumn.
