Universal Pictures

It's impossible to look at a dog and not have a huge grin spread across your face. They're lovable, furry creatures who want nothing more than to make your life better. (And considering the current political climate right now, we need all the help we can get on that front.) Netflix knows this, which is why they're releasing an original documentary series titled Dogs, which further highlights just how pivotal our canine companions are to our lives. The project is set to premiere on Nov. 16, however, there are already a ton of TV shows and movies on Netflix about dogs that you can enjoy in the meantime. Because, honestly, is there really such a thing as too much dog content?

Whether it's in the form of animation or real life, this streaming service provides a wide range of content that proves exactly why dogs have always been human's best friend. When the chips are down and you've had a particularly rough (ruff?) day, your furry friend is always there with a few loving licks and endless cuddles on the couch. So if you're in the mood for something adorable, pull up some of these options on Netflix and let these animals leave a few extra paw prints on your heart.
