"PAW Patrol, PAW Patrol, we’ll be there on the double! Whenever there’s a problem, ‘round Adventure Bay, Ryder and his team of pups will come and save the day!"

Nick Jnr's Paw Patrol is the children's TV phenomenon of the moment, entertaining millions of youngsters with its puppy adventures and jokes.

And if you happen to be a parent of a child who can’t get enough of Marshall, Rubble, Chase, Rocky, Zuma and Skye, here are 10 things you'll have noticed since your family turned into PAW Patrol fanatics.

Paw Patrol

1. You've found yourself singing the theme tune in the supermarket.

Whether you're at work, doing the shopping or just pottering around the house, you'll suddenly find yourself bursting into a "Woah-oh-oh!."

2. You ended a meeting at work with some words of Ryder wisdom.

You probably got some funny looks from colleagues when you ended the PowerPoint presentation with the closing statement, "No job is too big, no pup is too small!"

Non-parents probably won't understand it when you "Yelp for help" either.

3. In fact, avoid the catchphrases altogether

Chase is on the case.

These paws uphold the laws.

Ready for a ruff ruff rescue.

This pup's gotta fly.

Rubble on the double!

Green means go.

Kids love the memorable catchphrases all the pups have, but when you start muttering "Green means go" every time you're at a traffic light, you'll start to get some strange looks from strangers.

4. You really want to try out Pup Pup Boogie

The dance computer game that the dogs can’t get enough of looks seriously fun. It might be tricky to do with only two legs rather than four, but we'd love to give it a go. Someone should add it to the PAW Patrol merchandise quickly.

5. You start googling 'Adventure Bay' for a holiday

It looks quiet, the kids would love it and it’s by the sea. If Adventure Bay was real, we’d book a holiday there.

6. You've started questioning Captain Turbot's sea credentials

For a man who works at sea, he doesn’t half have a lot of problems on the water. He can barely last a single episode without heading head first into the ocean.

7. And you wake up in the night worrying about Mayor Goodway and her pet chicken.

Does Chickaletta actually live in the mayor's handbag? Where do you get hold of a pet chicken? Should this woman really be in charge of Adventure Bay? We may have over analysed this a little.

8. You know the Paw Patrol pledge off by heart

"In dark of night, in light of day, we, the PAW Patrol will serve Adventure Bay. From runaway trains to stranded whales, we'll rush to the rescue with wagging tails. If danger is near, just give a yelp! The PAW Patrol is here to help!"
