Product Overview

Dogs have been "man's best friend" for tens of thousands of years. A century ago most dogs worked for their living, and were bred to be healthy and hard-working, as well as companionable. But in the course of a few decades, many of those carefully selected attributes became obsolete, and nowadays we breed dogs more for their looks than for their health or suitability as pets. What's more, we too often treat dogs like wolves or, just as hazardously, like furry humans. The truth is, dogs are neither and our misunderstanding has put them in a state of crisis. In "Dog Sense”, renowned anthrozoologist John Bradshaw seeks to rescue dogs from this crisis by reminding us of their rights, gripes, and specific needs. He uses groundbreaking research into human-animal interactions to show us the world from a dog's perspective, teaching us how to live in harmony with not just dominion over our four-legged friends. Debunking a range of popular, dominance-based training theories and offering extraordinary insight into the question of how we really ought to treat our dogs, "Dog Sense" is a must-read for any dog lover.
