Pick of the Litter is a heart-warming and outrageously cute documentary which starts with the birth of five puppies at the Guide Dogs for the Blind headquarters in California.

These boisterous and hopeful Labrador puppies — Patriot, Phil, Potomac, Poppet and Primrose — are placed with ‘puppy raisers’ who will care for them and provide them with socialisation and training for up to 16 months. Not all is smooth sailing, though, as the student pooches must learn to deal with novice trainers, rowdy high school environments, and all the hard work that goes into becoming a guide dog. Their final weeks of assessment become a claw-biting test of whether these very good boys and girls can summon their discipline and resilience in order to make the grade as an official guide dog.
