Dogs: Netflix New Global Series

A new docuseries from co-directors Glen Zipper and Amy Berg, Dogs, premieres globally on Netflix November 16.

The six-episode series tracks six individual stories “celebrating the deep emotional bonds between people and their beloved four-legged friends” from Syria, Japan, Costa Rica, Italy and the U.S.

“Dogs don’t just make us feel loved, dogs make us feel safe,” says Glen Zipper. “In the world we live in today, no matter how divided we are, we should take care to realize how much dogs mean to all of us, and how our bond with them can help bring us together.”

The first episode, directed by Heidi Ewing, follows an 11-year-old girl who suffers from traumatic seizures and her certified therapy dog, Rory.
