Dogs are a man’s best friend, but did you know that there are so many more of their kind, ranging from fierce beasts to tiny & adorable creatures? Being a part of the Canidae family, these canids all belong to a collective group of 37 species, each having diverse characteristics and habitats. 

Not only do they live in different places, but their appearance also differs tremendously as well, with the Fennec Fox being just 20 cm, while the Maned wolf can grow up to be 3 feet tall. Some live in the intense heat of the Sahara desert, while some make their homes within the frigid areas.

BBC’s newest documentary, Dogs In The Wild, explores these species and provides a deeper look into their everyday lives. The show was first seen on Television on December 28th, 2022, and featured Fennec Fox, Maned Wolf, Artic Wolf, and Talkative Dhole.

We’ll be seeing many more of the 37 species being explored in the upcoming episodes, each offering us a broader insight into how these animals live and thrive in their habitats.

With Chris Packham’s informative voice as the narrator, Dogs In The Wild carries the educational tone well. You might recognize Chris’ voice from shows like Springwatch or The Animal’s Guide To Britain.

This show has been ordered for about three episodes, which will release in January 2023 on Television. The upcoming species we’ll witness are Jackals, Gray foxes, Darwin’s foxes, and many more similar animals.

The creators behind the series recall their encounters with animals that they were searching for but found them trapped or in pain. With hunting and killing of these canids being widespread in some areas, such shows need to exist that utilize their platforms and spread awareness about these endangered animals.

What Happened In Dogs In The Wild Meet The Family Episode 1?

In the episode from December 28th, 2022, we were introduced to the various kinds of canids, but the show mostly focused on the animal’s Artic Wolf, Fennec Fox, and Maned Wolf. 

The Fennec Foxes were one of the cutest canids to be seen in the episode, with their tiny body and large ears. But this wasn’t just for appearance, the tiny body of the Fennec fox helps them radiate the heat easily, while the ears provide ventilation.

What To Expect In Episode 2 of Dogs In The Wild Meet The Family?

In the upcoming episode of this BBC Canid documentary, we’ll see the strategies these species use to co-exist with all sorts of other creatures while protecting their kind from being hunted. Food and shelter may be their main concerns, but they don’t fret away from putting on their best fighting stances when faced with a foe.

One of the species that’ll be focused on is the Leaping Jackal. Also known as Golden Jackals, these canids are abundant in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Thailand, and India. They can jump up and catch their prey mid-flight.

Another species in this episode will be the African Wild Dogs, who use their sneezing as a way of communicating with their packs. Whether it’s deciding to stay and hunt or to move on, the sole form of a reply is the achoos. Gray Foxes will be featured in episode 2 as well. Though they are not endangered, this species of Canid is hard to come by, as they set out to hunt in the darker hours.
