All aboard, shipmates! When Benji discovers the secret headquarters of the Action Dogs, he jumps at the chance to join the team. But the crime-busting canines are up against their arch-enemy Katmanchew, who's sabotaged an ocean liner. They're out of their doggy depth on this mission. Will they sink or swim?

It's time to call Action Dogs! The world is in danger and only one team of heroes can save it... Six daredevil dogs who fight crime with their bare paws - and their hi-tech gadgets.

An action-packed new series you'd be barking mad to miss!
