5.0 out of 5 stars Dog Behaviourist's Bible, 20 Aug. 2010
By 
J.F (London, UK) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Handbook of Applied Dog Behavior and Training: Volume II (Hardcover)
I have used all three volumes of this book several times on my animal behavioural science degree (borrwed from university library), if you are doing a degree in animal behaviour or a related subject i would highly recommend this book, i haven't found anything else that really compares or is at the same standard while being as easy to use. Its scientific enough for use on a degree but it is still easy to understand (for me - this book would be a too heavy for a casual dog owner looking to sort out a small behaviour problem as this has all the science behind it as well, and you probably will need a scientific background to understand some of it)

So these books are not for everyone as it isnt a 'light read' but if you are looking for something scientific without it being a load of jargon that you can't understand then these are the books to get. They are expensive, but are an investment if you want to go into dog behaviour for a career, as i do. They are so good that i have bought all three volumes so i have copies at home to save me from taking them out the library all the time! Volume 1 is about how dogs learn (which casual owners would not really need to buy or use) but volumes 2 and 3 are about the cause and solution for solving behaviour problems, so you could get away with just getting volumes 2 and 3 if you are worried about buying all three them being too expensive if you are just looking into problem dog behaviour.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good for someone serious about dog behaviour, 5 July 2007
This review is from: Handbook of Applied Dog Behavior and Training: Volume II (Hardcover)
The Lindsay series are essential for anyone serious about understanding dog behaviour and training. However he does have a rather academic style of writing, and this is not an accessible or light read - more a reference book for courses.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Book that I shall read., 2 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Handbook of Applied Dog Behavior and Training: Volume II (Hardcover)
This book has a pretty cover too, although it is a blue cover unlike the previous book I purchased which had a green cover. This book also has several pages with lots of writing on them.
