5.0 out of 5 stars A great base for the professional working with canine aggression, 1 Jun. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
What an amazing book. Without being naive or overly optimistic, the approaches cover a wide range of aggression issues in simple, clear, well-explained steps. For any professional working with canine aggression, this is a great base. One of the most detailed books out there and so much crammed into every page.

Everyone should read this who works with dogs. For those who have any interest at all in patterns of aggression or who believe the hype about our apparent increases in dog aggression, this book puts it all perfectly in perspective.

The Truth About Dogs: The Ancestry, Social Conventions, Mental Habits and Moral Fibre of Canis familiaris
The Truth About Dogs: The Ancestry, Social Conventions, Mental Habits and Moral Fibre of Canis familiaris
by Stephen Budiansky
Edition: Paperback

1.0 out of 5 stars A series of more and more ridiculous assertions dressed up as "science" writing, 12 Mar. 2017
Oh dear. Is Stephen Budiansky supposed to be a scientist? I know there's such a thing as stifling a book with references, but some references for those enormous sweeping statements would be nice. He paints a picture of dogs as "connivers" and "master manipulators" with zero reference at all, glosses over some of the most crucial findings of his betters (Mech, Scott & Fuller etc - It would have been nice if he'd read their stuff in entirety instead of cherry picking to suit his point) and the bit where he says that bladders probably developed to hold urine instead of letting it go continuously, suggesting some kind of bladder-brain intent on some developmental goal is just outright laughable. I stopped reading at the bladder bit as it got just rather ridiculous. I'm unable to read further as I need to submit to my dogs' master purpose and go and feed them before they take over the universe, kill me and have a Napoleonic party instead of a wake.

Just a thought... If dogs' bladders had a higher developmental goal, surely dogs' paws need to get in on the game? They could develop opposable thumbs and cut out the middleman altogether. The future of humanity is clear: forget Planet of the Apes and think Planet of the Dogs.

How Dogs Love Us: a neuroscientist and his dog decode the canine brain
Price: £4.31

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful narrative account of the science behind how dogs see us, 20 Nov. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I loved the narrative format which was easy to read and non-sciencey, with an appropriately sciencey list of books and articles at the end if you want the science. I found myself absolutely weeping at the end for this species who give us so much, who demand so little and are our constant companions. I look forward to more neuroscientists choosing to consider the brains of our closest companions and finding out more about the dogs we have in our lives.
