Pick of the Litter

Spanning two years, this documentary follows five Labrador puppies as they train to become guide dogs for the blind.

"At eight weeks old, a litter of puppies is distributed to volunteer ‘puppy raisers’ responsible for training and socialising the dogs. Some handlers are experienced and others nervous first-timers. The pups are an equally mixed bag – two girls, three boys, black and golden, rowdy and shy. They are evaluated throughout their growing years, before starting an intensive training course." (Sydney Film Festival)

Bans on talking in movie theaters should be briefly lifted for anyone who can't resist shouting "Go, Poppet!" on test days. Which should be almost everyone.
