Second Chance Dogs Documentary

We are excited to finally announce that our documentary, Second Chance Dogs, is now live on Netflix!

Dog Files would like to give a big shout out to our ASPCA partners in this collaboration. It’s been a journey of many years and Dog Files couldn’t be more proud to showcase the great work the ASPCA does for animals.

“Our mission at Dog Files has always been to show the world that dogs deserve our love, care and respect,” said Kenn Bell, creator of Dog Files and director of Second Chance Dogs. “After creating the Hero Dogs Of 9/11 Documentary for Animal Planet, our latest doc, Second Chance Dogs, really hits that message home again and having it on Netflix opens the world to a day when all pets are safe and loved.”

The documentary takes viewers behind the scenes of the ASPCA Behavioral Rehabilitation Center and follows six dogs rescued from cruel conditions and given new hope for happy lives. Through innovative therapies and dedication to recovery, behavior experts at the ASPCA’s Behavioral Rehabilitation Center help these vulnerable and victimized dogs become suitable for adoption.

“Animals traumatized and betrayed by abuse and neglect are still at risk when adoption is not yet appropriate, but programs like the Behavioral Rehabilitation Center help rebuild their trust so they can be placed in safe and loving homes,” said Matthew Bershadker, President and CEO of the ASPCA. “Watching this process unfold in ‘Second Chance Dogs’ helps people understand that we can change the fate of these animals when we understand the possibilities and commit ourselves to that goal.”

Launched in March 2013, the ASPCA Behavioral Rehabilitation Center at St. Hubert’s Animal Welfare Center in Madison, N.J., is the first-ever facility dedicated to providing behavioral rehabilitation to canine victims of neglect and cruelty, such as those confiscated from puppy mills and hoarding cases. To date, the center has worked with more than 300 homeless dogs from various backgrounds, many of whom have already been adopted.

“Dogs who come through our Rehab Center have experienced so much pain and suffering at the hands of humans, and they’ve never had a chance to live their lives as pets,” said Kristen Collins, senior director of ASPCA Anti-Cruelty Behavior Rehabilitation. “By implementing behavior treatments based on sound scientific principles, we’re able to help the vast majority of these dogs overcome their fears and become comfortable with normal pet activities like walking on a leash, enjoy petting, and playing with toys.”

“We hope animal lovers across the country enjoy the film and feel inspired to open their hearts and homes to abused and neglected dogs,” added Collins. “They deserve a second chance.”

Second Chance Dogs is executive produced by the ASPCA and Dog Files. “Second Chance Dogs” was directed, shot, and edited by Kenn Bell, a freelance filmmaker and animal welfare advocate. In 2011, Kenn developed the critically-acclaimed documentary “Hero Dogs of 9/11,” which aired on Animal Planet in both the U.S. and Canada.

Dog Restraint Fail

Don’t worry, that’s a Crash Test Dog Dummy.

While not always doing it, I think most responsible dog owners agree that it’s a good idea to use dog restraints to protect your pet in case of a car accident.

Well, according to the  Center for Pet Safety, a non-profit watchdog group, 25 of 29 products failed during crash tests.

“Pet owners should be screaming about this,” said Center for Pet Safety CEO Lindsey Wolko. “If you get into an accident and one of these products fails, it puts you, your family members and it puts other drivers on the road at risk.”

Walk added, “Pet products are not defined as consumer products by the Consumer Products Safety Commission, so they bypass any kind of any oversight or regulation.”

The Center for Pet Safety found the following five dog restraints to be the best of the bunch:

  • Sleepypod Mobile Pet Bed with PPRS Handilock.
  • Gunner Kennel G1 Intermediate with Strength Rated Anchor Straps
  • PetEgo Jet Set Forma Frame Carrier with ISOFIX-Latch Connection
  • Sleepypod Clickit Utility
