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

2002, ISBN: 075381322X

[SR: 142851], Paperback, [EAN: 9780753813225], Phoenix, Phoenix, Book, [PU: Phoenix], 2002-02-07, Phoenix, Prepare to have any illusions about your canine companion totally shattered. In writing The Truth About Dogs, author Stephen Budiansky (The Nature of Horses) is determined to uncover the true nature of our beloved beasts, and it's not always a pretty picture. The introduction presents a basic question: why on earth have we allowed these disease-carrying, biting, destructive and expensive animals into our lives? We know why--it's because we love them, warts and all. So does Budiansky, and once you read past his inflammatory introduction, you will find a book that presents a new way of looking at old behaviours.His insistence on the recent evolution of separate breeds, even those generally considered to have originated centuries ago like the Mexican hairless, is sure to be controversial. His interpretation of recent behavioural research may raise some hackles as well and begins with an examination of pack behaviour in wolves. While wild packs have only one dominant male and female, we often expect our dogs to behave submissively to an extended family of dominants--not only can that be difficult, but some of their natural "submissive" behaviour can be extremely frustrating. Face licking is an easy example of this poor conduct; Rover thinks he's showing submission, but Grandma's not thrilled with having an 80-pound shepherd jumping on her. In discussions of more general behaviours, Budiansky's examinations of the motivation levels present in different breeds seems to explain much about the success or failure of obedience training. While you may raise your eyebrows and frown through a few of his assertions, this fresh look at old assumptions makes a fascinating read for anyone who's ever loved a dog. --Jill Lightner, 271658, Dogs, 271652, Animal Care & Pets, 64, Home & Garden, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 277976, Behaviour, 277972, Animal Sciences, 277912, Biological Sciences, 57, Science & Nature, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 277996, Dogs & Wolves, 277993, Mammals, 277972, Animal Sciences, 277912, Biological Sciences, 57, Science & Nature, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 922502, Dogs, 277865, Animal Husbandry, 277859, Food & Farming, 57, Science & Nature, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 922432, Mammals, 278399, Wild Animals, 278392, Nature, 57, Science & Nature, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 570626, Animal Sciences, 564340, Biology, 564334, Scientific, Technical & Medical, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books
