Dogs’ first episode is titled The Kid with a Dog. It tells the story of Corrine, an epileptic 11-year-old, and her therapy dog. The second episode is called Bravo, Zeus. 

Bravo Zeus is arguably the most heart-tugging episode from the Dogs series. It recounts the story of a Syrian refugee in Berlin named Ayham, and his canine friend, Zeus, whom he had to leave behind after fleeing his war-torn home, Damascus. This story lets viewers realize all of the atrocities of war and its most innocent of victims.

The third episode, called Ice on Water, is about an Italian fisherman and his loyal canine companion, Ice. It’s a drama that touches on complex issues ranging from climate change to generational, cultural upheavals. It’s a little heavy but nonetheless cute.

Other episodes in the series include Scissors Down, Territorio de Zeguates, and Second Chances. Each of these hour-long segments has something to offer viewers, whether self-professed dog lovers or not. Yes, Netflix’s Dogs is for everyone.

So next time you have a break from whatever it is that’s keeping you busy, go to Netflix, find Dogs, and chill.
