If you're looking for a Disney Plus animal documentary, you've come to the right place. This list is filled with docuseries that are centered around the animal kingdom, from dogs to kangaroos to flying foxes. Animals make excellent documentary subjects. They're endlessly fascinating, and unlike humans, they always act naturally in front of the camera. After all, these animals don't even know what a camera is! On top of that, many of the animals in the shows below are really cute in their close-ups. 

Dog lovers will be interested in Dog Whisperer, Dog: Impossible, and Pick of the Litter. Most Disney Plus animal shows come from National Geographic, but Pick of the Litter is in fact a Disney Plus original series. If you'd rather take a walk on the wild side, shows like Wild Russia and Kingdom of the White Wolf offer an exciting glimpse into the lives of bears, tigers, and wolves. Whether you're looking for your daily dose of cuteness or wanting to learn more about different creatures, Disney Plus has something that will fit the bill.

    Cesar Millan has been working with complicated canines since 2004. Acting as a mediator between owners and their dogs, Millan uses his fine-tuned instincts to solve these pets' problematic behaviors. More importantly, he teaches the owners skills to help them form a healthy, balanced relationship with their dogs. Millan senses what a dog is feeling, and tries to see the world through their eyes. With the proper training, these dogs become much easier to wrangle as their biting, barking, and chewing is eliminated. For dog owners, it's a great way to brush up on your obedience training knowledge.

    In 1981, Dr. Jan Pol and his wife Diane opened up a veterinary practice in the heart of Michigan. Since then, he's amassed a roster of over 19,000 animal clients! Dr. Pol's specialty? Large farm animals. Horses, pigs, cows, sheep, alpacas, goats, and even a reindeer or two have all been helped by Dr. Pol and Dr. Brenda Gettenberger, who has worked alongside Dr. Pol since 1992. Taking care of a cow is much different than working with cats and dogs. This show reveals the inner workings of what goes into caring for farm animals, and how they differ from domestic pets. If barnyard critters are your jam, you'll find plenty on The Incredible Dr. Pol
