National Geographic follows a group of four-legged forces to be reckoned with in today’s workplace. They diagnose bladder cancer by the smell of a patient’s urine. They bust drug smugglers hiding massive quantities of marijuana. They locate people trapped in the rubble of collapsed buildings. And they apprehend criminals fleeing the scene of the crime. Their work is challenging, stressful and often dangerous, but for the thousands of highly trained working dogs that clock in for duty each morning, it’s all in a day’s work.


Dogs have forged close work partnerships with humans for thousands of years, and new methods of training dogs to complete complex tasks continue to be pioneered. National Geographic heads to the office with these extraordinary canines and their human partners on jobs that push the limits of their skills.


Episodes include Canine MD, Border Hounds, and New York Police.

How our DVDs and DVD-Rs Differ

Customers who purchase programs in the NG DVD-R Library will receive a non-interactive, play only disc. There is no chaptering information on these DVDs, but there are chapter marks approximately every five minutes, which make it easy to fast forward through a program. The DVD-R format provides the digital video and audio quality you expect from all of our DVDs.

The dog is the ultimate human creation. With 400 breeds and counting, the dog is more varied in size and behavior than any other species on the planet.

From desirable traits like supersensitive hearing and smell to the unintended consequences of genetic diseases, learn how nature and man have partnered to deliberately create new and specialized versions of man's best friend.
