Victoria is excited to announce that she will be filming a new season of It's Me or the Dog later this summer in and around New York City. After shooting 4 UK seasons and with the 3rd US season currently airing on Animal Planet in the US, Victoria is thrilled to be returning to the New York metro area again to help dogs and owners achieve balance through her force-free, positive reinforcement dog training methods.
"I love New York City," says Stilwell. "Having cut my teeth as a trainer in large part while living in Manhattan and Northern New Jersey, it was great to return to the area last season with It's Me or the Dog. I love New Yorkers. While they often have a reputation for being harsh and rude, I've found that they're among the most warm and welcoming people I've ever been around. I loved filming there last year and I'm really happy to be going back again later this year."
"We had some truly crazy situations in the last season we shot in New York, and I can't wait to see what's in store for me this summer," says Victoria. "Hopefully I'll get to meet a few of my future clients this weekend at the NYC Pet show, too!"
Victoria was on hand to kick off the casting search for the upcoming season at the NYC Pet Show on Saturday, May 21st. After giving a presentation about her dog training experiences and answer fans' questions, Victoria stuck around to sign books and merchandise at the show. Joining Victoria at the show were the casting team from It's Me or the Dog as they began the search for the NY-area dogs and families most in need of Victoria's help, as well as three of Victoria's licensed dog trainers from the Victoria Stilwell Positively Dog Training (VSPDT) program. If you have an out-of-control dog, live in Tri-State area and would like to be on the show, come to the NYC Pet Show or one of the other New York-area casting events to audition to be on the show (it is not necessary to bring your dog, though they are welcome at the show provided they are on a leash).
