The amazing and heartwarming relationship that we have with dogs is quite inexplicable! Recently these canines have stirred up a lot of interest amongst scientists; they are fast being turned to for understanding ourselves better, just as chimps and apes were experimented upon earlier, by looking into their genome sequences, undertaking cognitive experiments on them, studying their fossils, etc.

A one of its kind breeding experiment in Siberia reveals the astounding secret of dogs evolving from wolves. This distinctive relation has also been supported by Swedish scientists who demonstrated and established that the bond between humans and dogs exists because of a very powerful hormone which is similar to the one that solidifies the bond between a mother and her child.

The reasons for dogs being so good at reading human emotions are still beyond the understanding of the realm of human mind. Horizon starts on this very quest and meets Betsy, which is famously known as the world’s most intelligent dog, and compares her astonishing abilities to those of children. Moreover, these wondrous creatures, apart from serving as our best friends also also help us to identify the root causes of human diseases!
