Puppies strive to become guide dogs in “Pick of the Litter”

Documentarians Dana Nachman and Don Hardy Jr., who gave us the informative and eye-opening film “The Human Experiment” and the heartfelt documentary “Batkid Begins,” are teaming up again to bring us “Pick of the Litter.”

This delightful and captivating story follows five promising puppies — Patriot, Primrose, Poppet, Phil and Potomac — all vying to become a guide dog for the blind. Will any of these furry, four-legged friends have what it takes to make the cut?

Over the course of two years, watching with bated breath, we get to know these dogs, their families and the individuals who need their services to guide. It’s a thrilling year filled with love, disappointment and even heartbreak while balanced by tears of joy. Yes, this “dynamic duo” of Nachman and Hardy have done it again with “Pick of the Litter.”
