The domesticated dog (Canis lupus familiaris) was the most common canine species found on the planet Earth. A juvenile dog was known as a puppy. Dogs were capable of being trained to do certain tasks, such as "fetching", and were also capable of forming very close bonds to their master, almost symbiotic in nature. Obedience training commands included "heel", an admonition to slow down and remain at the side of the one giving the commands. (ENT: "Doctor's Orders")
Several well-known Starfleet captains owned dogs, including Jonathan Archer, his mirror universe counterpart, James T. Kirk, and Kathryn Janeway. (ENT: "Broken Bow", "In a Mirror, Darkly"; Star Trek Generations; VOY: "Caretaker"; et al.) Both Archers had a dog named Porthos. The prime universe version of Porthos was a Beagle, whereas Porthos in the mirror universe was a Rottweiler. (ENT: "Broken Bow", "In a Mirror, Darkly")
Canine was considered a delicacy to the Tellarites. (ENT: "Babel One") Vulcan females were particularly sensitive to the smell of a dog, which they found to be particularly repugnant. (ENT: "Broken Bow")
The Trois owned a little dog when Deanna Troi was a baby. Her sister, Kestra Troi, ran after the dog when it got away. Because she was out of their sight, the Trois noticed too late that Kestra had fallen into Lake El'nar, a nearby lake, and had drowned. (TNG: "Dark Page")
While living on Earth, Amanda Rogers owned three dogs, which her parents referred to as "The Zoo". After seeing the size of her quarters aboard the USS Enterprise-D in 2369, she told Commander Riker that she had enough room for her zoo. She then told him she would have a dozen dogs if she could, but her mother had said, "Enough is enough." Amanda accidentally created a litter of puppies in her quarters, using the powers of the Q, but was able to make them disappear. Later, Q transformed Doctor Beverly Crusher into a dog, apparently without her knowledge, in order to prevent her from interfering with Amanda. Amanda was able to restore her to Human form. (TNG: "True Q")
Ensign Sito Jaxa told Lieutenant Worf, in Ten Forward in 2370, that among her duties at ops was to use the internal sensors to find a lost puppy. Worf told Sito that the ops duties were a different challenge than the tactical duties. (TNG: "Lower Decks")
In 2373, while attempting to persuade Captain Kathryn Janeway to mate with him, Q made an Irish Setter puppy appear in her quarters, as a gift. The female Q later referred to Janeway as "the dog." (VOY: "The Q and the Grey")
Dog-like beings Edit
When he accidentally traveled back in time with Quark, Rom and Nog to 1947, Constable Odo disguised himself by turning into a German Shepherd dog, popular among Earth militaries at the time. (DS9: "Little Green Men")
The Organians' imitation of a simple humanoid culture included dogs, one of which was heard barking while Captain Kirk and his first officer, Spock, prepared to blow up a Klingon munitions dump. (TOS: "Errand of Mercy")
The Banea domesticated a creature very much like dogs, whether or not they were native to their homeworld. In 2371, Tolen and Lidell Ren's dog, Neeka, was instrumental in proving the innocence of Tom Paris. (VOY: "Ex Post Facto")
When Porthos was sickened due to a pathogen on the Kreetassan homeworld of Kreetassa, Captain Archer had a dream about Porthos' burial. It was at a "dog cemetery" with several tombstones, including ones for Duffy and Goldie. (ENT: "A Night in Sickbay")
