Our experience with IPO/Schutzhund during the filming in 2018 sparked off another idea. We wanted to create Dogs of Sport featuring the German Shepherd in the world famous IPO Championships. This, of course, included herding and other elements the Shepherds have to master, but we wanted a documentary that gave more attention and time to this subject.
Dogs of Sport will follow representatives such as WGSDCA IPO National Champion 2018 Sanne Pederson who represented Australia in Denmark to show what commitments, perseverance and challenges competitors face in this sport. The documentary will feature IPO on a world stage, it’s origins, it’s the current state of the sport in Europe and Australia and will follow this journey into the 2019 Championships in Italy.
Dogs of Sport will also cover the German Shepherd competing in Agility and Flyball showing its diversity and competitive edge as an all-round athletic dog.
Road to Raw Documentary
Road to Raw is a documentary that will set out to discover how people feed their dogs and the results of those pet food choices. Road to Raw will not only focus on a raw diet but the option available in this current day and age of technologies that have advanced our knowledge from kitchen table scraps to customised meal prep and delivery to our door.
Road to Raw will investigate the food-related diseases that have resulted from commercial feeding and how companies have strategised to modify/add to their products to offer alternatives to a more savvy buyer and pet owner. The information age has given consumers a much wider choice and the ability to educate themselves about the benefits and pitfalls of more traditional foods which has put the buyer in a much more powerful position. We seek to find out how this has influenced the feeding changes that have occurred in the last decade worldwide.
Road to Raw will look into the scientific research behind all feeding styles but with a focus on Raw and Fresh, the two new industries that have popped up in the marketplace and are getting adopted at a phenomenal rate. Road to Raw looks at the trend from social media influencers and seeks to explore how the big pet food companies will respond.
Road to Raw will be shot over a 12-18 month period and follow five dogs with diets ranging from dry, canned, fresh, raw and dogs that have switched over and track their progress. We will speak to industry experts, holistic and natural vets, owners, regulators and specialists.
