And it is time someone stood up for dogdom - for the real dog, the pet that wants to be one of the family and enjoy life.<br />\nBiologists now know far more about what really makes dogs tick than they did twenty years ago - and John Bradshaw has been at the centre of that research. &nbsp;However, this new scientific understanding has been slow to percolate through to owners and has not yet made enough of a difference to the lives of dogs themselves. &nbsp;This book is here to set the record straight! - Paper Back Book<br />\nPrice includes UK P&amp;P.
