Description:Eleven-year-old Daniel has been struggling with feelings of abandonment since his mother recently passed away and his father, Mark, has little time to devote to his son. With the help of his friends Colin and William, Daniel trains a dog for the next Superdogs competition. The competition will not be easy to win however: one of his competitors is a girl named April, whose mother owns the best kennel in town. Danny's enthusiasm and good humour is eventually rekindled and he is able to win April's friendship and resolve the difficulties in his relationship with his father.
