Usually, each episode shows the dogs enjoying a normal day, playing on the neighborhood playground or engaging in fun activities with their toys. In between, Ryder gets a call about an issue that needs his attention. Sometimes, he witnesses an incident himself. He receives calls for help quite often from an accident-prone marine biologist named Cap’n Turbot, who is engaged with Adventure Bay’s wildlife.
Ryder then summons his team through the dogs’ blinking pet tags. Everyone reports at their base, the Lookout, and enter its elevator. Marshall usually gets into some mishap or the other, often causing chaos and a good dose of laughter. Once they arrive at the top floor, they form a line.
