Doc­u­men­tary / 9.00pm / Sky 1

Dogs have been trusted and loyal com­pan­ions to hu­mans for thou­sands of years and there are now around 500 mil­lion on the planet that are kept as pets. But our beloved pooches are part of a big­ger and wilder an­i­mal fam­ily called the ca­nines, which also in­cludes foxes and wolves, as well as strange and rare breeds only found in South Amer­ica, such as the Bush Dog. This three-part doc­u­men­tary, pre­sented by bi­ol­o­gist Pa­trick Aryee, traces the his­tory of the ca­nine, and be­gins by re­veal­ing how the 400 breeds of do­mes­tic dogs all de­scend from the grey wolf and how they evolved into man’s best friend.
