If you are a dog lover, you’ll want to see this. These puppies will keep you rooting for their graduation to Guide Dog status. It’ll give you ‘the feels’Follow 5 puppies on the quest to be guide dogs. Patriot, Potomic, Pil, Primrose and Poppet.
Guide Dogs for the Blind (GDB) receives 1,100 applications a year. Out of so many puppies born each year, only 300 of those make it to become guide dogs. Almost from the moment they are born, their training starts.
Puppies are moved to “puppy raisers” and then back to campus for more guide dog training. It’s a lot of learning for the puppies and a lot of work for their raisers. Watch as these dogs work their way through their training, trying their best not to become a “career changed” dog (cut from the program).
Watching this movie gives you the feels as you follow these charismatic dogs. You will root for these dogs, make you cheer out loud or makes you want to hug your own dog at times.
To prepare yourself for this movie, get popcorn, a box of tissues (we don’t care how big or strong you are, you’ll need it), and keep your dog by your side.
5-Paws all the way!
