I'm always on the hunt for a book that will increase my knowledge of dogs. Almost always, I am disappointed.
Usually, books are too anthropomorphic, or dogs are underestimated. Some books are so far into feel-good attitudes that they completely ignore the truth about dogs.
At their very worst, these book are written about the author's own sometimes first dog, with sweeping generalizations about the res If you only read one dog book this year, let this book be the one. At their very worst, these book are written about the author's own sometimes first dog, with sweeping generalizations about the rest of the dog population I'm looking at you, "A Wolf In the Parlor"!
This book does none of these things. The authors do talk about their dogs, a little, but all of the offered theories are based on scientific experiments with other dogs.
They explain what dogs can, and cannot do. They backs up what they are saying with real science, but it is written in a tone accessible to lay-people. There is a particularly spectacular chapter on current training methods that really explains the truth about clicker-methods and Skinner, explained dominance theory; and why neither one of these methods is appropriate for our furry friends.
I won't give away the game, but I will say I can see what I'm doing right, and what I'm doing wrong, when I train my own dog.. I also loved what they said we DON'T know because it hasn't been scientifically proven: basic characteristics of each breed are so divergent that we can't use a broad brush to define behavior in any of them.
Dog owners would say we can, but the truth is there isn't any science to back that up. So when you read behavior blurbs, just remember: these aren't scientifically verified.
Ultimately, this book is fantastic because it points out why our canine friends are so remarkable: they can read us in ways that are comparable to how other people read us my words here, not the authors'. So, some parts that I would have liked a lot more detail about were a bit sparse and unsatisfying.
But it's still an interesting book. Skip to main navigation Skip to main navigation Skip to search Skip to search Skip to content. Use current location.

Summer Reading for All begins June 1! Average Rating: Rate this: The author, a dog researcher, evolutionary anthropologist, and founder of the Duke Canine Cognition Center, along with his co-author offer revolutionary new insights into dog intelligence and the interior lives of our smartest pets.
In the past decade, we have learned more about how dogs think than in the last century. Breakthroughs in cognitive science, pioneered by the author have proven dogs have a kind of genius for getting along with people that is unique in the animal kingdom.
The essence of his discovery is that when dogs domesticated themselves around 40, years ago they became far more like human infants than their wolf ancestors. Domestication gave dogs a whole new kind of social intelligence.
Pocket Genius: Dogs
This finding changes the way we think about dogs and dog training. Does your dog feel guilt? Is she pretending she can't hear you?As a professional dog trainer, I have been waiting for this book for over 10 years. Easy to read, entertaining, and provocative.
The first section is the most substantial and for me the most interesting. These sections still had some interesting tidbits like the fact that besides appearance, the difference between breeds of dogs is minimal.
The Genius of Dogs: How Dogs Are Smarter than You Think
Anyway, there is some interesting i I can't help comparing this to the much, much better book on dogs by Alexandra Horowitz that I read last year. He defines the term "canard" for example The entire tone of the book is really unattractive to me Domestication gave dogs a whole new kind of social intelligence.
Update: in a curious side note, my mother, her chi, and I and my bc tried the pointing experiment.
