Refreshing
28 July 2020 | by stu-tangSee all my reviews

It was refreshing to watch a good documentary on something from the lighter and brighter side of the world. Most good documentaries these days focus on the negative and somewhat dark aspects of life, but this film is the total opposite and will put a smile on everyone's face at some stage of the film. The average person understands the importance of guide dogs in society, but the rigorous training and caring needed by different handlers is unknown to most people. So it was interesting to watch and learn how these animals are raised to help our blind people. I recommend this film to anyone and everyone. If you despise dogs, then maybe don't watch it. But for everyone else, this film is a winner.
