In Brief: Prison Dogs (2016) Tribeca 2016

PRISON DOGS is about the group of men at the prison in Fishkill New York who train dogs to help returning soldiers with PTSD. The idea is that the dogs will help the soldiers gain control of their lives.

A very good look at the program which has been the subject of several TV news segments. The film scores over them by showing the men, dogs and vets over the course of three or so years as the dogs go into the program, are trained and and given over to the vets. What is important here is that we truly see the effects that the dogs have on everyone. This is a program that is truly for the betterement of everyone involved.

This was the final film I saw at Tribeca at a physical screening and it was a nice way to end the festival.
