Story change

In a town called Adventure Bay, a 10-year-old boy named Ryder leads a team of 6 dogs who call themselves the PAW Patrol. Their names are "Chase", "Marshall", "Rocky", "Skye", "Rubble", and "Zuma". They work together to protect their town. Each dog has a set of skills based on emergency service jobs, such as a firefighter, a police officer, and an aviation pilot. They all reside in doghouses that transform into customized vehicles for their missions. They are also equipped with backpacks called "pup packs" that contain tools that relate to the pups' jobs.

Spin Master has developed the show into a media franchise and released an ongoing line of toys based on it. PAW Patrol toy sales have generated millions of dollars in revenue for the corporation and increased Spin Master's presence in the preschool toy market.[1] The show, and its associated products, have received a variety of awards and nominations from associations such as the Academy of Canadian Cinema & Television and the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences.

Renewal change

On February 19, 2020, the series was renewed for an eighth season of 26 half-hour episodes.[2] On February 18, 2021, the series was renewed for a ninth season.[3] A theatrical feature film, titled PAW Patrol: The Movie, was released on August 20, 2021.
