Movies and TV shows have long portrayed the domestic bond between dogs and humans and now NOVA: Dog Decoded uses science to try and figure out what exactly makes Fido best friend material. This PBS special looks to genetics to explain a dog's ability to read human emotion and how humans establish a bond with their dogs similar to a mother and her child. The relation between dogs and wild wolves is also examined in an effort to discover just how these beloved canines were domesticated.
