Product Description

From the Back Cover

This book highlights the state of the field in the new, provocative line of research into the cognition and behavior of the domestic dog. Eleven chapters from leading researchers describe innovative methods from comparative psychology, ethology, and behavioral biology, which are combined to create a more comprehensive picture of the behavior of Canis familiaris than ever before.

Each of the book’s three parts highlights one of the perspectives relevant to providing a full understanding of the dog. Part I covers the perceptual abilities of dogs and the effect of interbreeding. Part II includes observational and experimental results from studies of social cognition – such as learning and social referencing – and physical cognition in canids, while Part III summarizes the work in the field to date, reviewing various conceptual and methodological approaches, and testing anthropomorphisms with regard to dogs. The final chapter discusses the practical application of behavioral and cognitive results to promote animal welfare.

This volume reflects a modern shift in science toward considering and studying domestic dogs for their own sake, not only insofar as they reflect back on human beings.

A excellent book 4 April 2014
By Marc Bekoff - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
This is an excellent book - yes it is pricey and I hope people will consider buying a copy and sharing it and I hope the publisher will consider a much less expensive volume so that it can get the wide readership it deserves ...

please see a long review at my site for Psychology Today - [...] and here:

No justification for price 14 Mar 2014
By Nodger's Bottle - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I have no idea why academics - who are funded by public taxes - can think it's acceptable to use a publisher which charges such a stupidly high price.

The irony here is that lots of people actually would like to read this book, unlike most research.
