Netflix docuseries: Dogs - trailer

There's a new documentary series coming to Netflix that is going to please dog lovers.

Titled Dogs, the series will track six individual stories across six episodes that will “celebrate the deep emotional bonds between people and their beloved four-legged friends” from countries including Syria, Japan, Italy and the United States.

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

Episode one follows therapy dog, Rory who helps an 11-year-old girl who suffers from traumatic seizures.

Other episodes will follow an Italian fisherman who relies on his dog to be his business partner, two of the world's most renowned dog groomers in Japan, and a refugee who risked everything to bring his dog Zeus from Syria to Lebanon.

The series is co-produced by Amy Berg who directed West of Memphis, the true-crime documentary charting the wrongful convictions of the West Memphis Three who were imprisoned for the murders of three eight-year-old children in 1993.

Dogs is released on Netflix on 16 November.
