Pick of the Litter follows a litter of puppies from the first moment they are born and immediately begin their quest to become Guide Dogs for the Blind—the ultimate canine career. Cameras follow these pups through a two-year odyssey with their trainers (and multiple caregivers) as they train to become dogs whose ultimate responsibility is to protect their blind partners from harm by performing life-changing acts.


Discussion to follow with Patrick Downes, Jessica Kensky, Rescue (the dog!), and Curry College student Bella Scott with her guide dog O'Hara
