About this book
A uniquely authoritative exploration of what dogs are, what makes them tick and what they would ask us for if only they knew how; the first scientific approach to both dog training and breeding. This was a "Sunday Times" bestseller and so the potential for the paperback edition is huge. 'Every dog lover, dog owner or prospective dog buyer should read this book. It will change how you feel about dogs and, likely enough, how you treat them, too' "Sunday Times"
Overturning the most common myths about dogs' emotions and behaviour, this book shows how we should really treat our pets, and stands up for dogdom: not the wolf in canine clothes, not the small furry child, not the trophy-winner, but the real dog, who wants to be part of the family and enjoy life - mankind's closest friend.
