Here you will find our mini-documentary films that share just a few of the ways animals help people, and in some cases, how people are helping animals too. It is truly a human-animal bond.

Welcome to the second in a series of mini-documentary films about the Human-Animal Bond and the ways animals help people. 

 

Filming the Canine Commandos was great because the kids were having such a great time working with the dogs that they didn’t even realize they were learning. Isn’t that the way it’s supposed to be? And how awesome that the dogs get trained so that they become more adoptable.

Welcome to the first in Animal Magic Films series of mini-documentary films about the Human-Animal Bond. Travelers at LAX sure do appreciate the therapy dogs.

Why Is This Important?

Why Now?

1.
Thousands of people are experiencing physical, emotional or cognitive challenges that are not helped by traditional medical therapies. Yet many of these challenges can be supported by a service animal or a therapy animal interaction.
2.
Many people are either unaware that support is available to them, services aren’t available in their community, or it’s simply cost-prohibitive.
3.
Most people know some of the stories and applications, but we believe that the more people that know about the variety of human-animal interactions, the more people that can be served by various therapies.
