Show 16: I'll Ruff & I'll Ruff & I'll Blow Your House Down

Watch this episode

Chet was supposed to be Ruff's assistant but he was having a few problems. First of all, he needed training to learn how to be a good assistant. Second, he needed a place to live outside of the FETCH 3000.

To learn how to train animals, DJ took his dog Onyx to a dog agility training course. Onyx didn't know too many tricks so they started with the basics. They practiced obstacles like the tunnel, ramp, and hurdle, and DJ trained him using hot dogs and a clicker. At the end of the day they competed with trained dogs in an agility competition!

To take care of Chet's living quarters, Ruff gave Jay, Noël and Sammy a building project. First they met Ruff's friend Gunther — a real live white mouse! He needed a new home too and since there was plenty of straw lying around, Ruff said they should use that to build a mouse house that could sustain winds of up to 75 miles per hour. They figured out the best way to construct the house and tested it in a wind tunnel.

While they were doing all that, Harsha and Sam were getting their 45 bonus points in the halftime quiz show.

Afterwards, they all met up back at Studio G where it was time for the Triumph Tally:

Noël, Jay, and Sammy scored:

  • 80 points: For building an actual house out of straw

DJ scored:

  • 80 points: For earning most improved dog

BUT: "Is that all the points a dog can give?"

DJ earned himself 5 bonus points for keeping cool and staying focused when his dog didn't. Onyx chose the prize which turned out to be matching leather jackets for DJ and Onyx. Man, they looked cool!
