Looks who’s coming to the Puppy Bowl party – and not just attending but HOSTING the party! The O.G. dynamic duo, Martha Stewart and Snoop Dogg, are joining in on the other ‘big game’ this year, as hosts of PUPPY BOWL XVII, streaming on discovery+ Feb. 7 and airing on Animal Planet Sunday, February 7 at 2PM ET/11AM PT. Join in with Martha and Snoop as they host the ultimate tailgate party, root for the adoptable puppy players, and see who will end up top D.O. DOUBLE G in this epic Puppy Bowl matchup!

Martha Stewart and Snoop Dogg kick off PUPPY BOWL XVII in style, donned in their own Puppy Bowl gear including custom orange and blue team jerseys representing each of the puppy teams – Martha backing Team Ruff and Snoop rooting for Team Fluff – with a game-day set up that is sure to inspire all other Puppy Bowl tailgate parties with custom snacks, games, and of course a little bit of team smack talk! Joined by a posse of puppy players from Annenberg Pet Space, Paw Works and SPCA LA, Martha and Snoop will provide play by play updates throughout the game, cheer on their teams while giving each other a few challenges along the way…including breaking out their culinary skills to create a mouth-watering snack for the party (wings and cupcakes anyone?!) and a friendly Puppy Bowl-themed cocktail competition.

Audiences will also get a shout out from Martha’s own pups, French Bulldogs Crème Brûlée and Bête Noire, and Chow Chows Empress Qin and Emperor Han, in addition to Snoop’s French Bulldogs, Juelz Broadus and Choc, all of which are ready to cheer on the Puppy Bowl players. Get ready for a PUPPY BOWL XVII tailgate with a duo so fly, it’s next level!
