FILM THREAT/ Bradley Gibson

“…the uncommon near-perfect documentary: the filmic elements fade, done so well the viewer focuses on the dogs and their journey.”


Nachman and Hardy have produced another winning and relatable doc combining emotive storytelling with concisely focused filmmaking that’s sure to charm viewers well beyond a sizable audience of dog lovers.


Nachman and Hardy tell a beautiful, educational, and heartfelt story that lifts you up, reminding you of the importance of helping one another and how dogs can be an integral part of our lives.”
