Dog Sense by John Bradshaw is a great book for people who want to understand dogs in more of a scientific way.
Bradshaw not only starts his book with a great discussion on their history and genetics, but he also talks about how dogs differ from wolves. He looks at popular training methods and discusses the science behind them.
I didn’t learn a lot of new information from this book, but Bradshaw was able to provide me with a different perspective on the topic.
For anyone interested in cats, Bradshaw has also written a book called Cat Sense.
