Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: Kent Davis, DVM, B.S.(University of Illinois Veterinary Medicine Teaching Hospital)
Description: This is a very in-depth, informational text on dog behavior and training. The author gives good biological, historical, and current techniques in animal training and behavior.
Purpose: The purpose is to bridge the gap between the various professional groups and others working with dog training and behavior counseling. There is a need for these groups to learn more about issues outside their studied discipline. With this book the author helps bridge that gap.
Audience: The intended audience is professional animal behavior groups, trainers, and anyone desiring more knowledge on animal behavior and training.
Features: The author gives a concise, understandable form to a lot of the research and data in the field of dog behavior and training methods. He covers evolution, ontogeny, and conditioning, just to name a few areas.
Assessment: Hopefully, this condensed text of difficult-to-find information will help animal behaviorists. In it the dog trainer will find information that is not readily accessible. Finally, this book can be an adjunct to all those wanting to know more about dog behavior and training methods.
