The Secret World of Posh Pets
 
In the first episode of the series, we meet millionaires Debi and Bob, who share their luxurious four-acre Kent estate with 13 of the most spoilt dogs in Britain. But Debi is taking it to the next level. She’s arranging for Honey, her Teacup Chihuahua to marry long time partner, Chihuahua cross, Joey, in an extravagant £4,000 wedding.
 
Over in Hampshire, we meet Louise and her daughter Sophie who have over 30 spiky, small and sociable African pygmy hedgehogs. These little hoglets are increasing in popularity as great house pets, but Louise is fearsomely protective of who she sells them to. Anyone who wants one must go through a strict vetting process. Jan has wanted one for ages and can barely contain her excitement whenever she gets near a hoglet, but will she be allowed one?
 
Robert Clarke is a one of the most successful dog portrait artists in the world, with a client list that incudes celebrities and discerning art lovers. Robert must paint yet another portrait of Norfolk terrier Tommy for loyal client Rachel. But will she be impressed enough to pay his £5,000 fee?
