About a Dog was Debbie Barham's last comedy proposal before she died in 2003.[1] The programme stars Alan Davies, playing a dog, Jack, with his owner, Sarah, played by Kate Ashfield in the first series and Claire Goose in the second, in a sitcom told through the eyes of a canine.

Developed by Above the Title Productions and subsequently scripted by Graeme Garden from Barham's notes, this comedy explores the unique relationship between dogs and their owners and asks if your 'best friend' has some essential 'doggy wisdom' to offer you.

The programmes were produced by Jon Naismith. Graeme Garden wrote a second series of the show that was broadcast in 2007.
