Allan Glanfield and Loyal Canine Allan Glanfield is the man behind the Loyal Canine Company, creator of a range of balms and treatment creams for dogs. In this short film, Allan and Frankie the French bulldog get ready for the day ahead; breakfast, work and of course, a walk.
A Balming Influence We love the balms that Canadian menswear designer Allan Glanfield has come up with. After seeing his bulldog Frankie suffer from dry nose issues in the chilly Toronto weather, Glanfield created a line of quality healing ointments aimed solely at dogs, featuring a nose moisturiser, a paw protector, and a general first-aid ointment, all of which use pure natural ingredients. This promo video, featuring Allan and Frankie in full flow, gets his message across nicely
Okpiks Dream - 1 During the Dog Slaughter in the early 1960s, 11-year-old Harry thought his dream of becoming a dog musher was destroyed. Twelve years he suffered a shooting accident which was followed by three years of intense hospitalisation and estrangement from his community. He made the life changing decision to amputate his leg – one he believed would forever rob him of his hopes of becoming a true Inuk. We follow Harry as he recounts the momentous events of his life and prepares with his husky dogs for the Ivakkak – a gruelling 600 km Inuit dog sled race across the Canadian Arctic.
Pull “Dogsledding lives at the intersection of skill and chaos...” PULL is a short documentary film that delves into reflections on journeying the cold Northern Canadian landscape by dog sled. In climates where the winters stretch on and piling snow is not the exception, but the rule of the day, embracing the cold is the only way of coping. For his latest short film “PULL,” Toronto-based director and photographer Goh Iromoto captures one unique personality in the wilds of Northern Ontario—Burton Penner, a dogsledding guide who lives and breathes winter. Highlighting Penner’s unique relationship with the roughhewn yet pristine landscape and his trusty 43 dogs (yes, he remembers all of their names), “PULL” is a quietly beautiful portrayal of a rich, close-to-nature lifestyle.
