Just because they're animal lovers doesn't mean they're not fighters!
In the new Animal Planet web series Dog Park
, viewers follow the lives of five New Yorkers working to keep their local dog park in shape while simultaneously getting to know each other better. And as with most reality programs, the quintet is no stranger to their share of drama.
"Dude, don't call me that," gripes cast member Lucia Stoller in a clip from the show after being called "sweetheart" by costar Seiko Machin. "It just really pisses me off."
Things take an even trickier turn when Katie Sweeney and Nathan Flores begin dating, with the show's trailer teasing trouble in their relationship as Sweeney's ex re-enters the picture.
But despite their differences, the group remains committed to improving their animal hangout.
"If we don't take care of the park, the park won't take care of us," says Machin.
