Fascinating insight into the challenges facing dogs in the 21st century and how we as dog owners can make our dogs lives better by learning to understand them betterBradshaw starts off exploring how dogs are likely to be descended not from modern wolves but from an ancestor of both wolf and dog and explores how they came to be domesticated while wolves didn t and on the way debunking much of the popular dominance myths that have been popular in dog training for a long time He talks about how many traits that were desirable in the working dog of 50 100 years ago are very much the opposite of desirable in the modern pet such as a tendency to herd or guard The sections on dog body language and how they communicate with both humans and other dogs were particularly fascinatingRead alongside Temple Grandin s Making Animals Happy A couple of points that reflect my own particular bias when it comes to dogs Bradshaw talks about the horrific genetic conditions that many pedigree dogs suffer from the overbreeding of dogs that has led to shelters struggling to cope and the fact that the modern pet dog is his words Reuired to be inactive almost 34 of their livesSo if you want to rescue a dog and free up space in a shelter rather than buying one if you want a dog that has been bred purely for health and speed and has no genetic problems like hip displaysa or heart conditions and if you want a dog that sleeps about 18 hours a day adopt a greyhound Making Animals Happy How to Create the Best Life for Pets and Other Animals

Let s get this out of the way this is not a book about how to have the perfect dog or anything along those lines This is science Specifically the over looked science of what we know about dogs their origins perception and their role in society And I loved itThe first third or so of the book looks at the history of wolf to dog pointing out that all the dominance theories of dog behaviour are based on faulty understanding of wolves especially the false belief that the study of captive wolves has a useful contribution to understanding modern dogsBeyond that the text feels like a call for use of science and education and less celebrity and fads to make dogs a rewarding part of our society I ll single out pedigree breeding as one area that is just insane but along the way there s a lot of science input to how we live with dogsPlenty of references and foot notes to follow up on
