John Bradshaw - In Defence of Dogs (2nd Hand Paperback)
An authoritative exploration of what dogs are, what makes them tick and what they would ask us for if only they knew how.
What would dogs ask for, if they knew how?
In the Sunday Times bestseller In Defence of Dogs John Bradshaw, an anthropologist at Bristol University who has been at the centre of the latest research into what makes dogs tick, gives us the answers.
Overturning the most common myths about dogs' emotions and behaviour, this book shows how we should really treat our pets, and stands up for dogdom: not the wolf in canine clothes, not the small furry child, not the trophy-winner, but the real dog, who wants to be part of the family and enjoy life - mankind's closest friend.
This is the real science that every dog lover needs to know.
