I'll admit, when a friend gifted me this dvd and I read on the case that it was written, filmed, starred in, and produced all by one small, independent, husband-wife company, my expectations were rather low.

OH MY DOG...was I ever surprised!!! Nothing small-time, unpolished, or unprofessional about this precious gem. It is by far the most engaging, authentically heart-touching film about the human-animal bond I have ever seen.

I laughed, I cried, I moved my body to the music. I delighted in the scenery, cinematography, and seeing other pet parents willing to not only go to any lengths for their animals, but rejoicing in and celebrating those lengths.

Like a really good dream, the emotionalism and beauty of the film stayed with me for more than 7 days! I enthusiastically encourage you to order a copy for yourself, friends and family, and its focus on holistic pet care makes it the perfect companion gift for The Healing Art of Pet Parenthood!

"Seven rescued dogs. Mostly elderly and most with health problems. You want to take them on the trip of a doggie lifetime, but where do you go and what do you do?

In "Seven Days with Seven Dogs", filmmaker and animal psychic Billie Dean and her filmmaker husband Andrew Einspruch bundle their seven rescued dogs from the Ballyoncree Animal Sanctuary and hit the road on a journey of discovery.

Filmed in some of Australia's most beautiful places, and shot by AFI Award winning cinematograhper Anthony Jennings, the documentary follows Suki, Louie, Tala, Twylah, Cedar, Willow and Raffi as they do everything from stay in five-star resort accommodation to taking a horse-drawn gypsy caravan ride.

A short of "Seven Days with Seven Dogs" has already screened at a number of film festivals and on the ABC’s Stateline (ACT). It’s heart warming and fun, and indeed, is getting quite a following.

The full dog-umentary is now available. It's an hour of uplifting entertainment about seven rescued dogs as they journey through some of Australia’s most picturesque country and having the healing holiday of a doggie lifetime."

Nadine, this is great! Some parents were telling me about this "dog-umentary" that was an amazing piece but they couldn't tell me its title. But thanks to you now I can look for it and share it with our friends! How come these "real" art examples go unnoticed by the masses? Thanks again!

I believe in the same methods, cured myself of cancer. I know of a friends dog -they said the same thing, chemo, drugs, surgery...& gave the doberman 1 yr., if she did all that.
My friend said no way. Went holistic and the dog is still alive today, 5 years later.
Natural medicine works and I totally work with my body, not against it.
Great articles here.
