NATURE takes a close look at a familiar friend with an amazing capacity for love and learning in Extraordinary Dogs.
Dogs are anything but common animals. They develop lifelong bonds with the people that take care of them. Sometimes, they instinctively know when a human or animal companion is in trouble and in need of help. Whether it’s assisting the disabled or finding a person trapped underneath snow, dogs can be counted on to get the job done.
Loveable and dependable, canines have been assisting their human pals for hundreds of years — from pulling dogsleds to helping the blind get through the day safely. Dogs’ desire to please and willingness to follow commands make them good working partners as well as loving companions.
Through heartwarming and intimate personal stories about individual dogs and their owners, NATURE explores the world of dogs that go beyond “man’s best friend”.
