A Tale of Two Dogs: The Bloodhound and the Beardie
Season 25 Episode 12/17

Dogs have been carefully bred for centuries as working animals, but when kept as pets their instincts to hunt, guard and retrieve can often cause behavioural problems. The programme follows a bloodhound and a bearded collie living in a rescue centre, as professional trainers teach them to do the jobs they were bred for, hoping that sniffing out criminals and herding sheep will give them the chance of a more settled life.
