I am always interested in good books about dog behavior, and I especially appreciate the ones that recognize that our buddies are domesticated, and are not always following the "rules of the pack", per se. I am currently reading "The Other End of the Leash", and I have "Bones Would Rain from the Sky" on deck. I would also add to the list of pretty good books to check out, "The Dog Who Loved Too Much", Dr. Nicholas Dodman. It presents real cases of animal behavioral problems and the tried techniques and outcomes.
If we really think about it, human society changes so much and our way of living changes so much, that we should not be ignorant to realize that canine behavior changes as well. If our environment changes and our standards of living and acceptance changes, then it changes everything about the beasts environment and living. The rules change at some point, and the leader of the pack may not be the first one out the door.
I'm glad I have my seperation anxiey dog still here with me, she's a good protector.... always first out the door , and last when I tell her to be.
I love the dog books, any other good ones out there??
