This book is like a toy poodle: it packs a lot of energy in a little package. Throughout his long career as a researcher, professor, writer, and dog trainer, Coren (psychology, emeritus, Univ. of British Columbia; Born To Bark: My Adventures with an Irrepressible and Unforgettable Dog) has been asked the same questions many times. Here, he answers them in 72 short chapters. Queries range from dogs' anatomy and physiology (e.g., "Why do dogs' eyes glow in the dark?") to their emotions (e.g., "Do dogs feel jealousy and envy?") to unusual habits (e.g., "Why do dogs roll in garbage?"). Coren also includes chapters on the principles and methods of positive dog training. He writes in a conversational style, basing his answers on the latest scientific research while avoiding jargon, which makes this book informative for veteran and novice dog owners alike. VERDICT Dog lovers, students of animal behavior, and those who enjoyed Coren's many other books or Alexandra Horowitz's Inside of a Dog: What Dogs See, Smell, and Know will demand this title.
