Saving The British Bulldog

BBC One

Britain’s most iconic dog is in crisis. Comedian, actress and dog lover Catherine Tate investigates the serious health problems affecting the British bulldog and what we can do to save it.


At the start of this year vets launched a national campaign urging prospective dog owners to think twice about buying flat-faced breeds like bulldogs.


Meeting breeders, dog owners and vets Catherine asks what’s causing the bulldog’s problems and explores whether science and genetics can offer a life line to the breed. And she asks the Kennel Club, the leading authority in charge of pedigree dogs, whether they’re doing enough.
