Superpower Dogstakes you on an adventure to witness the life-saving talents of some remarkable dogs who define what it means to be a four-legged superhero.

Superpower Dogs tells the real-life stories of six dogs whose superpowers and extraordinary bravery stretch across the globe. You'll meet Halo, a Dutch Shepherd puppy, and watch her three-year journey to becoming a trained member of Florida Task Force 1, one of the most elite disaster response teams in America.

As Halo grows from runt of the litter to action hero, the film takes you to Africa, where Bloodhounds Tony and Tipper team up to save endangered species from poachers. As expert trackers, the brothers have spent their lives protecting the animal residents of the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy in Kenya.

You'll get to know Ricochet, the surfing Golden Retriever in San Diego who works as a therapy dog for children with special needs and veterans with PTSD. Journey to Italy to meet Reef, a 4-year-old Newfoundland lifeguard who executes the bravest of water-rescues with the Italian Coast Guard.

And prepare to fall in love with the handsome goggle-wearing Border Collie, Henry as he braves the harsh conditions of the Canadian Rockies to rescue avalanche victims - while wearing his Whistle!

‍“Henry's kind of the James Bond of dogs, dropping in from a helicopter to save people trapped in the snow,” said Director, Daniel Ferguson.

From fighting crime to saving and protecting lives, these canines are making the world a better place. “These dogs are real superheroes with epic powers we can only dream of and that we might take for granted,” explains Ferguson.

After watching these heroic canines plow through avalanches and drop from helicopters, you'll never look at your best bud the same way again. To learn more about the film and find an IMAX theater near you, visit
