Guide Dogs for the Blind was the subject of an award-winning 2018 feature-length documentary called "Pick of the Litter." We are thrilled to report that the documentary has been developed into a television docu-series by the same name, now airing on the new subscription streaming service Disney+.

The series documents the ups and downs of an adorable group of six dogs on their fascinating and surprisingly suspenseful quest to become guides for Guide Dogs for the Blind, the ultimate canine career. We are delighted that the series captures both sides of the harness by showcasing the people who love, train, and are paired with GDB dogs.

The six episode series is audio described. 

Stay tuned for more info!

"Pick of the Litter" Documentary Film

Lights, Camera, Action!

GDB is the subject of an award-winning, feature-length documentary, titled "Pick of the Litter." The film had its world premiere in January, 2018 at the Slamdance Film Festival in Park City, Utah. Directed by Dana Nachman and Don Hardy, it follows a litter of GDB puppies from the moment they are born. The filmmakers received unprecedented access to raisers, staff, and clients in order to capture the puppies’ journeys. The movie—which features audio description—was purchased by IFC Films/Sundance Selects and received distribution in theaters and beyond. The movie can be found on Netflix and Hulu, as well as on Amazon Prime rentals, YouTube, Vudu, and other platforms.


August 2020 Update: While the film is audio described for everyone's enjoyment, some streaming services may not have that feature activated at this time. To access the audio track for iPhones and iPads, please download the Spectrum Access App.
