This video segment from Nature provides information about the social and cultural perspectives of humans’ relationships with dogs. Our ability to communicate and socialize with dogs has changed our lives. Not only can we teach dogs fun tricks to do, but we can teach them to do tasks we cannot do. Herding dogs, for example, help people manage sheep. The dogs can follow the shepherd’s command to herd in sheep from over a half mile away. Because they spend so much time together, shepherds and dogs form a close social bond.
