Dog Sense

How the New Science of Dog Behavior Can Make You a Better Friend to Your Pet
Borrow

From renowned anthrozoologist Dr. John Bradshaw comes a clear-headed examination of how the latest scientific research on dog behavior can improve our relationships with our canine companions.

Dogs have been mankind's faithful companions for tens of thousands of years, yet today they are regularly treated as either pack-following wolves or furry humans. The truth is, dogs are neither—-and our misunderstanding has put them in serious crisis.

What dogs really need is a spokesperson, someone who will assert their specific needs. Renowned anthrozoologist Dr. John Bradshaw has made a career of studying human-animal interactions, and in Dog Sense he uses the latest scientific research to show how humans can live in harmony with—-not just dominion over—-their four-legged friends. From explaining why positive reinforcement is a more effective (and less damaging) way to control dogs' behavior than punishment to demonstrating the importance of weighing a dog's unique personality against stereotypes about its breed, Bradshaw offers extraordinary insight into the question of how we really ought to treat our dogs.

Reviews-
  • AudioFile Magazine It seems there are two schools of thought about dog training, and Bradshaw front-loads his book to promote his views with DNA studies, findings from archaeological digs, and what he surmises about how domestication came about. Narrator Michael Page has a steady, mellifluous delivery with excellent pacing; however, his lack of modulation or emotion makes the material sound like the nightly news. By Chapter Four, we start to glimpse Bradshaw's passionate affection for man's best friend and some of his good ideas about how to make their lives better through behavior modification. This listener just wishes he hadn't spent so much time bashing people he disagrees with. D.G. (c) AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine
