This book presents a highly detailed, very documented description of dogs. Although the initial section on genetics and the relationship between modern, domesticated dogs and preceeding generations of wolves becomes redundant, the author is quite clear and precise in his analysis. The chapters on dog's intelligence, emotional attachment and behavior is very interesting. These sections alone are well worth reading!

    Great book!

    Very informational, with solid scientific research to back it up, but written in a way everyone can follow. It should be required reading for every dog trainer and every dog breeder.

    This book is amazing! It is clear that Bradshaw is a scientist but also a dog lover himself. This book offers wonderful insight into the way dogs behave and it is all backed up with science. It actively challenges the concept of training a dog using punishment and offers a more successful and humane approach. If you want to understand how dogs learn and why they behave certain ways this is a great book. A MUST READ!
