Dr. Hare discovered some interesting things that dogs could do awhile back. Then many years later he wrote this book with Vanessa Woods. While taking his course on Coursera I read this book and found it to be rather enlightening.
I recently attended a lecture from a veterinary behaviourist and she recommended that those of us attending give this book a try. It’s new, it’s shiny and it’s written by people who know science.
I’m going to put it right here: I love this book.
Stefan Bechtel writes about the dogs that were rescued and rehabilitated by the DogTown team while also focusing on relaying the human component of dog rescue/rehabilitation as well.
This book appears to be written to compliment the show as most, if not all, of the dogs were commented on as having a fan base from airing on an episode.
Janet Elder writes the story of her sons’ lost dog teaching a town about “hope and happy endings”. Based on the true story of a small dog and the kindness of strangers, “Huck” promises to be unforgettable. Continue reading
Kyra Sundance has created a book that is intended to give you 101 ways to do more with your dog. The focus is said to be on things such as sports, games, exercise, bonding and such.

Exploring the co-evolution of humans and dogs, Stanley Coren uses his scientific knowledge to deliver a readable account of various theories on humans and dogs over the years.
This is a book built for giving more knowledge on the human-dog bond as it’s formed throughout history. This is not for people who choose to subscribe to religious beliefs that say that evolution is a lie, he talks about knowledge based on theories such as evolution, and uses his knowledge on archaeology to help further the book.
Focusing on a balanced training approach, “Good Owners, Great Dogs” works to help owners solve their “bad dog” problems by understanding the body language of the pup. Corrections are not shunned but care is made to ensure that people know what is a “correction” and what is “useless/abusive”.
Takashi Murakami writes a story about a dog and his unlucky owner. As they move through life the reader gets to see the perspective of the pup – who speaks in full sentences that relay his emotions and thoughts. Continue reading
