Streaming giant Netflix will launch the six-part docuseries Dogs globally on Nov. 16.

The series follows six different stories from Syria, Japan, Costa Rica, Italy and the U.S., each exploring the bonds between dogs and their owners.

Episodes include a portrait of Corinne, a young girl who suffers traumatic seizures, and her bond with her service dog Rory; the story of Ayham a boy escaping war in Syria and his efforts to bring his dog Zeus with him to Germany, where a new life awaits; a look at two world-renowned dog groomers from Japan as they head to California to compete in the ultimate dog grooming competition; and more.

The series was developed by Glen Zipper, with critically-acclaimed documentary filmmakers helming each episode. Directors include Academy Award-nominated Amy Berg (Deliver Us From Evil), Academy Award-winning Roger Ross Williams (Life Animated), Academy Award-nominated Heidi Ewing (Jesus Camp), Emmy Award-winning Richard Hankin (The Jinx) and Academy Award-winners T.J. Martin and Daniel Lindsay (Undefeated, LA 92).
