Pick of the Litter Disney+ preview: Only the really good boys will make the cut
Watch adorable puppies embark on a quest to thrive in the ultimate canine career and become guide dogs.
The streaming service is scheduled to release a touching docuseries that focuses on dogs this December, right before the holidays. Here’s the complete schedule of upcoming Disney+ titles.
Don’t be fooled, though, this isn’t your average, cutesy dog-centric show. In fact, Pick of the Litter comes with high stakes, for both the puppies involved and their human companions. Here’s everything you need to know to tune in.
When is Pick of the Litter coming out?
Pick of the Litter will come out December 20. Disney+ releases episodes on a weekly basis, so you’ll need to tune in week after week to see how the puppies fare on their mission.
What is Pick of the Litter?
Pick of the Litter is inspired by the 2018 documentary of the same name. This time, we follow a new set of puppies as they train to become Guide Dogs for the Blind.
As the voice-over in the trailer announces, “It’s really hard to become a guide dog. It takes a very special, confident dog to be able to do this job.” Consequently, it’s very likely that not all of the doggos featured will get to actually work as a guide dog once their training is complete.
Save your tears for the show, okay? It’s a dog eat dog world out there.
Who stars in Pick of the Litter?
The new Disney+ series stars six adorable puppies, three male and three female. Their names are Paco, Pacino, Tulane, Raffi, Amara, and Tartan.
Human companions will also be featured, as the show follows these good boys over a two-year period as they train to fulfill their career goals.
Will Pick of the Litter be any good?
Yes. Have you read the premise? It’s a show about puppies training to become guide dogs.
If you need an additional reason to tune in, we should mention that the original documentary this show is based on was received with critical acclaim. It currently has a 97% Rotten Tomatoes score, with critics praising it as heartfelt, beautiful and full of joy.
There’s no reason why the series shouldn’t follow into the movie’s footsteps.
Furthermore, we need more uplifting content during these cynical times. Disney+ offers a vast selection of family-oriented content, including memorable family movies and excellent kids’ programming. We’re sure Pick of the Litter will fit right in.
Finally, the story is really engaging and inspiring. There’s plenty of fluffiness involved, but these dogs are basically competing to potentially make someone’s life better.
Only the best of the litter will go on to work as Guide Dogs for the Blind and the dedicated individuals who train them will give everything it takes to help the doggos reach their full potential.
We can already anticipate that this series will be an emotional rollercoaster.
