No animal reflects human social change as much as the dog. While dogs have been mankind’s hunting buddies for millennia, in the modern world they also serve as companions, help the disabled, diagnose cancer, or sniff for drugs.

Buddies: How Dogs Discovered Man reflects upon this shared cultural history, exploring the origins of a number of breeds and investigating the ways in which our relationship with dogs has changed. This informative and entertaining documentary takes a closer look at the intersection of nature and culture — a cinematic crossover sure to appeal to history buffs and dog lovers alike.
