A California border collie-cross that searches for survivors when disaster strikes. A chocolate lab in Britain that helps school children to read. An Australian cattle dog that helps scientists sniff out why orca populations are declining. Across the globe, dogs of all breeds are hard at work improving lives, increasing safety, and maintaining the health of our planet. This five-part series examines extraordinary jobs held by dogs, and how their unique natural abilities allow them to tackle challenges we cannot.
Dogs are born with an incredible sense of smell, and sometimes, we call upon these superpowers to help prevent ecological disasters, prevent the decline of endangered animals, and even sniff out a rare culinary delicacy. Join us as we follow canine detectives on the Canadian frontier working to the stop the advance of invasive zebra mussels, on the Western Cape to rescue geometric tortoises, and into the private woods of Washington to track down an aromatic fruiting fungus that's more expensive than gold: truffles.
