Zak George (who was, almost interestingly, credited as "Presenter & Producer" in series one, making him the latterday William G. Stewart) presides over a canine tricks competition. Each episode starts with an "auditions" section from which three children and their dogs are chosen to learn a trick. Whichever kid/canine pair does it best at the end wins, somewhat inevitably, a "golden bone" trophy.
A very similar idea was used for later series, though these were structured as longer tournaments, with heats, semi-finals, and a grand final crowning an overall winner.
The show had a roadshow spin-off, with the somewhat unwieldy title Who Let the Dogs Out and About. Kate Edmondson presented the show, which came from a different location each week. She was joined by Scott Miller (vet), Claire Gillies (dog expert and the show's producer), and Ashleigh Butler and Pudsey (Britain's Got Talent winners). Ashleigh and Pudsey went on to present the next series of the main programme.
