PICK OF THE LITTER follows a litter of pups from the moment they’re born and begin their quest to become guide dogs for the blind. Through an intense two-year odyssey they train to become dogs whose responsibility is to protect their blind partners. Along the way, these remarkable animals rely on a community of dedicated individuals who train them to do amazing, life-changing things. Not every dog can make the cut, only the pick of the litter!
