By further pulling back the curtain on dogs' inner lives, the new school of canine science has the potential to provide everyday dog owners with new ways of thinking about--and relating to--their pets. Some of this research has revealed startling differences between dogs and people, suggesting that it is both desirable and possible for dog owners to "think dog" rather than simply assuming that whatever they themselves are sensing and feeling, their dog must be sensing and feeling too.
I love my dog--but I must admit that I didn't have a clue as to what might be going on in his fascinating little dog brain until I got Dog Sense. John Bradshaw shares the latest animal behavior science to reveal how dogs evolved, what their emotional and intellectual capabilities are, the underlying principles of canine genetics and breeding, and how we can help dogs adapt to our rapidly changing world. Be kind to your furry four-legged best friend by absorbing this enlightening guide to the world from a dog's perspective.
