Stop What You’re Doing And Watch This: Pick of the Litter

Everyone loves puppies (or they should). So stop what you’re doing and watch this cuddly and cute documentary available on Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Prime, which follows a litter of labrador retriever puppies and their training for becoming service dogs who guide the blind.

Is the competition to be a guide dog as cutthroat as the documentary? Some experts say no, but that’s not the reason this documentary is a must-watch. The lesson is in watching them encounter situations where, for the safety of their future masters, they must disobey their verbal commands (such as crossing a street if there’s traffic).

Intelligent disobedience, as so brilliantly illustrated in this film, is about breaking the rules, or at least ignoring the rules, for the greater good. Do you encounter situations at work or in life where you should be following their lead? Tell us your stories (or at least send us a pic of your doggo).
