Here at Stylist HQ we love nothing better than a bit of canine-related cuteness, which is why news of ITV's upcoming documentary Secret Life of Dogs was like music to our ears.

The one-off documentary, narrated by Martin Clunes, celebrates everything that is great about our four-legged companions, from the mundane to the extraordinary.

Take Jess the Springer Spaniel, who's able to muck in with chores on the farm by feeding baby lambs with a bottle held in her mouth. Or Max, the wilderness air-scenting dog, who saved a 79-year-old woman stranded for two nights in freezing conditions.

Then there's heart-warming footage of Labrador puppies asleep, dreaming about Andrex or whatever it is they dream of. And some beautiful slow motion shots of a Basset Hound shaking off water and an Afghan Hound leaping up lovingly at its owner.

Grab a taster for the film with our adorable clips below and don't miss the full feature tonight (31 January) at 9pm on ITV.
