Very focused on academic research, interspersed with shots of dogs and their owners for the human interest angle. The narrative flows very smoothly from research project to research project, and the highlighted research is indeed very interesting.
The research projects run the gamut from the evolution of wolves to dogs, to the communication between dogs and humans, to the less tangible bond between dogs and humans. Emphasis is placed on how unique the dog-human relationship is, and fundamental differences between dogs and other animals which may be a result of this relationship.
Given the short time available, the research was not always presented thoroughly enough to dissuade methodology criticism. Leaves the scientifically curious with more questions than answers, but not for lack for trying.
