Ever suspect that behind your dog or cat’s fluffy face and apparent affection, there’s a world-class jerk just waiting to screw you over? A new YouTube series could help.

Hosted by “canine domination specialist” Tevin “TJ” Butler and “intuitive pet messenger” Ryu, Is My Pet a Jerk? is billed as “The Dog Whisperer meets My Cat From Hell, but with no redeeming educational value.” Sounds exactly like what you want in your Internet media diet.

Below, check out the first episode, in which our experts plumb the psychic depths of a happy-go-lucky Goldendoodle who may have been Amelia Earhart in a past life.

I’d ask Ryu and Butler to examine my own dogs, but they never listen when I ask them nicely not to eat garbage off the sidewalk, so I think I have my answer.
