The Dog Bone challenge was called "Mud Dog." The dogs were challenged to cross a beam over mud.
This episode is the first one to not have a dog house. Instead of the Dog Bone winner sending another to the dog house, they now have a "leg up" on the Best in Show challenge.
Laurie and Andrew won Best in Show.
Teresa and Leroy won the Dog Bone challenge, but gave the suite and their reward to Bill and Star.
This week's Best in Show challenge was called "Dancing with the Dogs." Each owner and dog had to perform a one-minute dance routine to a specific theme.
Beth Joy: (after JD and Galaxy failed the Dog Bone challenge) You know those cartoons where steam comes out of the ears - that's how JD looked.
Laurie: (after Andrew fell in the mud) I'm sure it's fun for everyone to see the little white dog get muddy. His hair is too beautiful to fall in the mud; poor Andrew.
Bill: (after the Dog Bone challenge) When Star slipped on that beam, I was lookin' right dead in her eyes. She wouldn't have fallen off. When she got over to me I said "wow, look at what my orange dog did." I was so proud of her.
Laurie: (to Brandy about Beacon) Stop making them like humans. She's tired; you've been training her. Let her be a dog. We provide for them; they love us for providing. They're not vindictive; they don't hold grudges. They're pure creatures.
Travis: You're their idol all of the time. That's why they're glad to see you every time. They live moment to moment.
