  • In Defence of Dogs

    John Bradshaw

     The dog has been mankind's faithful friend for tens of thousands of years, yet today finds itself in crisis throughout the western world.  Until just over a hundred years ago, most dogs worked for their living, and each of the many breeds had become well suited, over countless generations, to the task for which they were bred.  Now, in their purely domestic roles, we fail to understand their needs. 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.
    Biologists 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.  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.  This book is here to set the record straight! - Paper Back Book
