Animals at Work, also called Frisky Business, is a British-Canadian children's television series presented by John Barrowman on CBBC.[1][2], Discovery Channel, and Primo TV. Each episode features 3 or 4 animals in different parts of the world that do weird jobs.

Legal conflict[edit]

In 2012, Merrily Weisbord, who originated the show Dogs with Jobs, sued Cineflix and series producer Glen Salzman in Quebec Superior Court for $400,000 over Animals at Work. Weisbord alleged that the program was a knockoff or sequel of Dogs with Jobs, having the same structure and featuring at least 15 of the same dogs.[3]
