The life and legacy of a Louisiana dog trainer, and the global footprint he left after training an estimated 30,000 dogs.

"'Dog Man' is undeniably a handsomely shot documentary, highlighted by pitch-perfect musical selections. But more importantly than all that, director Richie Adams seems aware of the one key ingredient to documentary filmmaking: You've got to find the sort of subject that will grab an audience's attention from the get-go and keep a firm grip on them through to the closing credits.
