The stakes are high and not every dog can make the cut. Only the best of the best. The pick of the litter.
Took my 7 yr old daughter to see this film at the Boulder Film Festival today and really enjoyed it. The film follows a litter of 5 puppies from their birth at the breeding center at Guide Dogs for the Blind. From there we follow the dogs through their first weeks at the kennel, to the puppy raisers who begin their training, and the people they meet along the way. We were really connected with the dogs and seeing who made it through the initial training, and who was "career changed" for one reason or another. The audience couldn't hold back their applause for the dogs who made it through the more rigorous training program to become working dogs. I was emotional at the end of the film, watching the blind people meeting and training with their new guide dogs. Wonderful film about a great program!
