A heartwarming and inspirational film expertly produced and directed
28 June 2011 | by superdanadadSee all my reviews

Bob Weatherwax is an American Institution. What he learned about dog training from his father, coupled with his own natural talent and uncanny affinity for man's best friend made him the most sought after dog trainer in Hollywood for many years. Beyond his incredible work with Lassie (which will never be equaled by anyone) he trained the top performing dogs in TV and movies and even worked other trainer's dogs when they came up short. To hear him talk about his roots, about his love for dogs, and about his ambitions for the future is fully inspirational. He has a legacy that is unique in Hollywood. He has an ability for storytelling that is both touching and motivational. His affiliation with Temple Grandin seems a natural progression from just training dogs to being inspired by them to do more. I won't spoil it for the reader, but this is a valuable and very touching nine minutes. I feel in viewing it that I have been let in on something very poignant and very special. I can only give it the highest possible rating, but somehow it deserves more.
