A New York Times bestseller, Dog Sense is a must-read for any dog owner or dog-lover who wants to better understand man’s best friend
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. In Dog Sense, renowned anthrozoologist Dr. John Bradshaw uses groundbreaking research into human-animal interactions to show us 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.
