Dog’s Best Friend

Film (Trailer) – 2017

For this feature-length documentary, Kiwi actor Eryn Wilson heads behind the camera to tell the tale of a dog rehabilitation centre. Former soldier Jacob Leezak runs a dog psychology centre in Australia rehabilitating aggressive, troubled or abandoned pooches. He uses a mixture of physical training (swimming, massage, treadmill running), and lots of cuddles and kisses. Leezak makes it clear that dogs aren't to blame for bad behaviour, claiming 90% of their problems are caused by humans. Dog's Best Friend was set to play at the 2018 New Zealand International Film Festival.

My goal is to make a film that's a celebration of a man and his life's work to rehabilitate dogs. Dogs that we humans have arguably failed. I want to make a film that encourages us all to question what we know and what we think we know about dogs, including our own pets.
– Director Eryn Wilson, on his Kickstarter fundraising page for Dog's Best Friend
