Editorial Reviews

How did the fierce wolf become a playful puppy? Why are there so many varieties of dogs? And how did they earn their place as "man's best friend"? This PBS Explorer Collection seeks to answer these questions--and more!

How Smart Are Animals? - New discoveries are revealing that "man's best friend" is smarter than we ever thought, with a brain that resembles our own in ways we never imagined. Travel to Wolf Park, where scientists are tracing the evolutionary path that turned wild animals into our cuddly companions...and meet a superdog with a vocabulary of over 1,000 words! Also features How Smart Are Dolphins?, How Smart Is an Octopus?, and Profile: Irene Pepperberg & Alex. (Descriptive Video for the Visually Impaired, and Subtitles in English (SDH).)

Dogs Decoded - Science is revealing what dog lovers have suspected all along: dogs have an uncanny ability to read and respond to human emotions. Humans, in turn, respond to dogs with the same hormone responsible for bonding mothers to their babies. Genetic discoveries are illuminating the origin of dogs--with big implications for the evolution of human culture--but how did this incredible relationship between humans and dogs come to be? (Subtitles in English (SDH).)

Through a Dog's Eyes - Follow the inspiring stories of people with disabilities as they experience the heartwarming and sometimes challenging process of being matched with and receiving a service dog. Featuring Jennifer Arnold, founder of one on the country's leading service dog organizations, Through a Dog's Eyes provides new insight into one of life's most extraordinary relationships. (Closed Captioning.)

Dogs and More Dogs - Did you know the Saluki can beat any other mammal on earth in a three-mile race? We feed them, breed them, pet them, and dress them, but how well do we really know dogs? John Lithgow narrates this insightful look at how dogs evolved from fierce wolves to playful pets--and why there are so many types of dogs today. (Descriptive Video for the Visually Impaired, and Closed Captioning.)

this was several fun evenings of TV for both my wife and I. I held back one star because there were so many repitions (overlaps) of footage.

I bought this for my mother, but we both absolutely love watching it. Dogs are so much more than simple furry friends.

Video is most interesting, informative and a joy to watch. If a consumer likes animals (and especially dogs) getting a video like this is a good buy.

This set contains four equally fascinating documentaries and is well worth watching. It is great value and you learn an enormous amount about the latest scientific research findings. If you are interested in dogs or own a dog and want to understand them better you will love it!

I rescue throw away dogs... one time I had 44 dogs at once. Over the last thirty years over 250 have found a loving home here..I'm down to 12 but all found a good home with me. The cd's are special to me.
