5 Best Things About the Annual Puppy Bowl

Mark your calendars! Puppy Bowl XVIII is on Sunday, February 13th at 2PM ET on Animal Planet and Discovery+.

Cheer on Team Ruff and Team Fluff as they compete for the Lombarky Trophy.

We heard there’s another big game on after the Puppy Bowl, but it can’t be as cute as this!

Here’s the 5 Best Things About the Annual Puppy Bowl:

  1. Every dog is adoptable

This year features over 100 adoptable puppies from 67 shelters and 33 states!

  1. The Puppy Bowl celebrates puppies of all abilities

As well as the puppies’ coaches. Snoop Dogg will coach Team Fluff while Martha will coach Team Ruff. Um, can you say “dream job?”

  1. It’s a great way to decide on the breed of your next dog

You’ll be able to observe the nature of many different breeds of dogs - from Pit Bulls to Labs and Corgis to French Bulldogs. Heck, you could even choose to adopt your favorite pup on either team!

Everybody wins!
