Dog's Best Friend

An animal lover's documentary that shows the inner workings of an Aussie rehabilitation centre for troubled dogs.

"Run by ex-soldier Jacob Leezak, the Canine Behaviour Expert Dog Psychology Centre is located on a property in outer Sydney that houses no fewer than 30 dogs at a time – all either abandoned, set to be euthanised or brought in by clients unable to handle their pet’s aggressive side. While Jacob will often allude to the media stigmatisation of particular breeds (the film even opens with some sobering euthanisation stats), Wilson wisely never centres the story on that debate. Instead, he focuses on the bond between man and dog, observing Jacob’s tailored process of rehabilitating misunderstood canines and the traumatic backgrounds that brought both him and his fiancée Jennah to this line of work."

Playing exclusively on the big screen at Auckland's Hollywood Cinema (and available simultaneously to stream at home in an innovative model), Dog's Best Friend is an animal lover's documentary that shows the inner workings of an Aussie rehabilitation centre for troubled dogs. This is grittier than your typical dogumentary heartwarmer, critic Aaron Yap writes but is nonetheless a valuable piece about canine company.
