Only twenty-five percent of the world’s domesticated dogs live as pets and working dogs. The rest live as feral animals. Yet scientists have found the most widespread bonding between humans and another species, anywhere in the world, or in history, is with dogs.
NSK9 explores the relationship we have with our furry best friends, from their health, to their food, to their lives as working dogs, and to their lives as pets. From more serious subjects, such as how dogs are helping patients cope with PTSD and other mental health conditions, to how people cope with the loss of a pet.
The first season airs in 2019 and includes 13 episodes. Production is underway.
NSK9 is produced by Winter Light Productions Limited and is made in association with Eastlink Community TV. It is produced with the assistance of the Government of Nova Scotia, Nova Scotia Film & Television Production Incentive Fund
