Martin Rütter – The puppies are coming!
— Our kennel on TV on RTL —
Season 4 episode 4 (Broadcast: April 10, 2022 , 5:30 p.m.)
I had actually applied with Rayla, so that (after all other puppies had moved out) RTL would accompany Rayla and me during her first year of life. However, the network had other plans for me and was very interested in capturing me as a breeder while raising our B & C litter.
After a lot of thinking – and a few discussions with my mother, who didn't want to go through all the stress again – we finally submitted a new application video. It took about two weeks until we knew whether our application was accepted, because not only the network, but also Martin Rütter himself had to give their approval. As soon as the decision was made, we had a good-humoured TV crew of four, including two cameras and lots of equipment, standing in front of our door, ready to shoot.
Overall, it was a great experience (and also very different from 2015 and 2016 with VOX ), but although the team was great, we lacked so much time due to 5 full days of shooting we had within only 3 weeks, that we were completely at the end of our strength and really regretted having taken part in this. I felt like I wasn't really mentally present during the shoot and very stressed out by everything that was happening around me. Afterwards, I'm really annoyed that I wasn't more focused during the shoots. Despite everything, I'm of course very much looking forward to our report and I'm excited to see how everything was cut together and how the audience will like it – I'm sure that all the stress was worth it in the end and that a nice memory will remain! :)
Here are some "behind the scenes" photos and videos.
