Editorial Reviews

Set against the colorful backdrop of the Los Angeles dog walking scene, The Dogwalker follows the moving, transformational journey of Ellie Moore (Diane Gaidry), on the run from her latest abusive boyfriend. Down and out on the mean streets of L.A, rescue comes in the unlikely form of Betsy Wright (Pamela Gordon), a misanthropic Dogwalker in need of help with her business and struggling with her own dark past. The unusual relationship between the cranky dogwalker and her unstable apprentice sets the stage for the emotional transformation Ellie must undertake.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dogwalker is a charmer September 3, 2007
Verified Purchase
I saw this movie a couple of years ago at a LA indy festival, and was expecting to see a ho-hum so-so little film that didn't have the clout to go to Sundance. Boy, was I wrong! This film captivated me from the first scene to the last, and not just because my dog was friends with one of the four-legged stars. The performances evoked by director Thelemaque were very substantial, heart-felt and often multi-dimensional. And kudos, too, the the animal wrangler who had to deal with all the four-legged stars and their owners. The dogs, most of whom were rank amateurs, did splendidly. Given that I had never seen any of the performers before (except Zoe, the dog who runs away), I came away wanting to see most of these people in other works, and definitely wanting to see something else directed by Thelemaque. The story, while a little predictive, was beautifully unveiled rather than the slap-in-the-face that a poorer production would have evoked. Scene editing and continuity were well done with no visible flaws.
I left the viewing actually feeling for the characters and knowing that I had seen something special. And it is one of those stories that sticks with you and has you telling your friends around the water cooler, "I saw something special at the cinema this weekend. You should try to see it, too."
Now, I can finally get the DVD and actually share it with my friends.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dogwalker Movie is Outstanding July 29, 2007
I highly recommend this movie. It is a realistic portrayal of a victim of abuse who escapes, and with difficulty and help from another older victim of abuse makes a new life for herself as a dogwalker.

The acting, directing, and photography are all very good. Support independent film makers and buy a copy of this movie now!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Dogwalker July 13, 2007
By Gizell
You really have to enjoy independent film/movie makers. "The Dogwalker" was outstanding. Jacques Thelemaque did a fantastic job with the story and directing. The acting was great and on-time. I found the movie to be moving and funny. A treasure to own. The shorts on the DVD are an expression on their own. Got to admire "Transaction".

5.0 out of 5 stars the dogwalker May 12, 2008
i just love this movie. It looks into the life of a dogwalker in Los Angeles, CA. and what it takes to be one and have a relationship with fellow dogwalker's. The actress Diane Gaidry who played Ellie was excellent.

I must say that first of all I ordered this movie due to watching Diane Gaidry in "Loving Annabelle." Once again Diane shows how very talented she is & I immensely enjoyed the movie. Ms. Gordon also was great in this movie. It was so sad to hear that she passed away soon after being in this movie.

Diane Gaidry is a great actress & I will seek out future movies for sure. I did enjoy some of her the short stories she was in - can see them on the DVD of "The Dogwalker." There's quite a difference you see in Diane! I was shocked to hear her say the "f" word!

I never would have thought I would enjoy watching a movie about dogwatching! I now believe I would enjoy anything Diane is in. I do hope to see her in many more movies.
