    Really excellent, portrays social anxiety disorder from the standpoint of a middle schooler in a remarkably accurate, if dramatized, way, and the support he receives from his family and friends is truly refreshing and important to show. The emotional support dog really sees him, gets him really well, although there are some inaccuracies in his portrayal -- namely, that because there is already a misconception about "emotional support animals" and the abuse of that designation as opposed to the official, certified, and medically-necessary therapy dogs, the fact that this dog seems to have been a service-dog-school drop-out lends itself to some such suspicion. However, I also recognize that this is for comedic effect via opportunity for dog-tomfoolery. Overall it is a remarkable, wholesome, and important show, and I would highly recommend it.

    My kids and I love watching this together. It's a perfect show to watch as a family. It's clean, fun, and relatable. We can't wait for season 2!

    This show is about a boy and his "ESA". ESA's do NOT have public access and aren't allowed in a school, or any public setting. The dog failed SD training and was given to him to go in public? Yikes. Terrible show and bad representation of the community.

    Awesome! Emotional rollercoaster.

    Nothing really groundbreaking but refreshingly decent and deals with anxiety in a way that kids will grasp and understand .

    Anybody with kids that suffer from anxiety, must watch this!

    This show reminds me of another dog show called Wishbone which focuses on a classic story-loving dog who can let the viewers understand him while other people in real life can't. In contrast to this show, there were other dogs besides Dude can talk to him and not many other dogs in Wishbone. There was this one time in an episode where another dog can briefly talk to Wishbone at the very end. I find that easy to remember.

    I have a 7 year old with mild anxiety. We used this show to educate her about what her body was saying.... and fell in love with the cast (and writers). Well done, let's see more!!

    This is an awesome show and I really hope there's gonna be a season 2 soon! I literally watched all of season 1 in one day! I'm even gonna rewatch it again and again until there's a season 2! 😁

    Miseducating on emotional support animals, service animals and the law. Emotional support animals are not allowed in public, like school. In the movie he is doing illegal things by bringing the dog to school with him. It gives people the wrong idea and encourages people to break the law and put other people's lives in danger.
