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.

USA, 2018, 81 minutes, Not Rated, Directed by Dana Nachman & Don Hardy Jr.

  • “By far the most joyous time you'll have at the movies all year.”

    – Scott Marks, SAN DIEGO READER
  • “A complete delight, a much-needed balm for the soul.”

    – Katie Walsh, LOS ANGELES TIMES
  • “PICK OF THE LITTER is made with heart and reverence for man's best friend, especially those special pooches who go on to answer a higher calling.”

    – Adam Graham, DETROIT NEWS
  • “It's the ‘Hoop Dreams’ of dog documentaries.”

    – Jeffrey M. Anderson, SAN FRANCISCO EXAMINER
  • “Outstanding… the uncommon near-perfect documentary: the filmic elements fade, done so well the viewer focuses on the dogs and their journey.”

    – Bradley Gibson, FILM THREAT
  • “PICK OF THE LITTER is much more than a puppy parade, educating viewers about what it takes, practically and psychologically, to train a service animal. The wet noses and wagging tails are just a perk."

    – Marissa Martinelli, SLATE
