Dog's Life Film Complete
Zak's completed film teaching young people about dog behaviour has been shown to local young people in his town.
Zak Soan (21), from Peterborough, has been around dogs his whole life, and has learnt to properly handle them by understanding their behaviour.
Taming any dog is difficult, but Zak has to also deal with being partially sighted, meaning he only has 20% of his sight.
Despite this, he has tamed even the most aggressive dogs and has adopted a once ill-treated four-year-old Staffordshire Bull Terrier in the process.
Zak believes that anyone can understand dogs better, and this is why his short film - 'A Dog's Life' - came to be produced.
“The majority of dog attacks today are on children, the reason being that most children cannot read or understand the signs which indicate a dog is likely to attack,” he said.
“I have worked with a lot of dogs, and I believe that even difficult dogs can be tamed with some understanding and compassion.
"This is why I made this simple film - to teach young people about the basics of dog care and dog behaviour, so they can have a brilliant companion."
The film - which is part animation, part live-action - shows Zak caring for his dog and provides handy tips on how to approach and care for dogs.
