Clever Dog Book (Paperback)
Man is not ape. Dog is not wolf. With her unique understanding of the secret language of dogs, Sarah Whitehead, one of the leading experts in the new science and psychology of dog behaviour, uses amusing anecdote and numerous case histories to discover the mysteries of dog behaviour and show us a new way of communicating with our pets.
From startling facts about its origins, to the fundamental reasons behind dog and man’s unbreakable attachment, Clever Dog: The Secrets Your Dog Wants You to Know explores the myths that so many pet owners have been led to believe – and forms conclusions as to how our future relationship with the dog needs to change in order to survive, and thrive.
As a world-leading expert in canine psychology, Sarah Whitehead has met thousands of dogs and owners across the UK and internationally and has relished the chance to ‘talk dog’ with so many of them. She has seen dogs that would leap into the flames of an open fire just to get attention, dogs that have licked themselves raw to gain relief from anxiety, and dogs that have jumped through upstairs windows rather than be left alone at home. All these dogs have had one thing in common – they have been utterly misunderstood. These dogs – and yours – deserve better after an existence by man’s right hand.
In her role as canine behaviour specialist, Sarah shares her unique understanding of dogs. With sections on Life, Love, Health and Happiness, this is a book about how we can become a harmonious team with our best friend. Here at last are the secrets your dog wants you to know.
With fascinating case studies and expert practical advice, Clever Dog is much more than a guide book – it is the book your dog would want you to buy.
