On May 30, CBS will premiere “Dogs in the City,” starring a New York City comic who has been a dog walker, dog trainer and dog sitter for more than a decade. Each Wednesday at 8, Justin Silver will resolve issues between canines and their owners – yes, sounds a lot like NatGeo’s “Dog Whisperer.”

Here’s where “Dogs in the City” exec producer Carol Mendelsohn — the same Carol Mendelsohn whos behind CBS’s “CSI” franchise — delivers the standard dog-series disclaimer: “Dogs are often a lightning rod for their owners’ emotions and dysfunction at home.”
