Which of the “P” litter puppies will become the pick of the litter?
Five adorable puppies are tasked with the important job of becoming future guide dogs - this is the topic of the latest dogumentary from the US.
The film Pick of the Litter follows the story of five Labrador puppies from birth through the different and rigorous stages of training that are required to transform a puppy into a fully trained working guide dog in just two years.
It provides an interesting insight into all the different individuals who contribute towards making it happen – at the breeding centre where the puppies are first born; the puppy raisers who volunteer to take the puppies into their homes and teach them the basics; the dog trainers who put each puppy through their paces to see whether they have what it takes to be a guide dog; and on to the individual recipient.
