1. To Be Of Service

To Be Of Service is a feature-length documentary film directed about war veterans suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) paired with a service dog to help them regain their lives. Returning home for these vets is often plagued with depression and a wrenching disconnect from the world they once inhabited. Family, old friends, and jobs seem foreign, and newly returned warriors struggle to function and return to a normal civilian life. Service dogs offer a miraculous ray of hope in helping them come back to an independent, feeling life. The viewer learns it is the fragile life of young warriors, changed forever by combat that is the true cost of war. (Netflix, Amazon)

2. Pick Of The Litter

Pick Of The Litter follows a litter of puppies from the moment they’re born and begin their quest to become guide dogs for the blind. Cameras follow these pups through an intense two-year odyssey as they train to become dogs whose ultimate responsibility is to protect their blind partners from harm. Along the way, these remarkable animals rely on a community of dedicated individuals who train them to do amazing, life-changing things in the service of their human. The stakes are high and not every dog can make the cut. Only the best of the best. The pick of the litter. (Netflix, Hulu, Amazon)

3. We Don’t Deserve Dogs

A contemplative odyssey across our planet, looking at the simple and extraordinary ways that dogs influence our daily lives. Former child soldiers in Uganda. The local pub in a Scottish town. A dog walker on the streets of Istanbul. A kaleidoscope of unconventional portraits from fascinating locations. People need dogs, and perhaps they need us, but what do humans do to deserve the unconditional love they provide? (Amazon)

4. Pet Fooled

An investigative expose of the inner workings inside the commercial pet food industry, which has gone largely unchallenged until now. With commentary from two renowned veterinarians, Pet Fooled looks into the pet food industry and its negative impact on our fur family’s health. (Amazon)
