Covering a handful of different dog breeds in each episode, this series is both educational and enjoyable for fans of canines. Dogs 101 delves into touching anecdotes while packing in as many historical and scientific facts as time allows. In the first episode, for example, viewers will be amazed to learn that French bulldogs are physically incapable of mating. They'll also get to see special relationships between dogs and owners, including dogs who have helped the elderly, people dealing with serious medical conditions, and more. As you learn more, it's fun to discuss as a family how the description of each breed matches up to the dogs owned by friends, family, and neighbors. And, of course, to speculate what type of dog might make the best addition to your family -- be prepared for the kids to ask after watching! In fact, the summary of facts for each breed, and emphasis on what each type of dog needs to stay happy and healthy, pretty much guarantees it will happen.
