The concept of Paw patrol came from a prototype for transforming a truck toy, which was designed in 2010 by Ronnen Harary, who is the co-founder of Spin master toy company. Later in the same year, the company requested for a TV show based on transforming a toy.
Spinmaster toy company asked Keith Chapmon ( who is the creator of famous Bob the Builder animated show for children) to create the TV show based on the transforming truck toy and he agreed to create that show.
He designed the Paw Patrol team with the title of Rafi & Rescue Dogs, then the company hired toy designers to develop the toys based on the concept.

Children are also interested in watching silly cartoons and Paw Patrol also comes in the same category.
