Canine behavior - a photo illustrated handbook
Publisher: Dogwise Publishing
Dogs have deliberate, subtle, and often humorous ways of expressing themselves. Canine Behavior - A Photo Illustrated Handbook includes 1,000 images of dogs, wolves, coyotes, and foxes. It was created for everyone interested in dogs—pet owners, trainers, veterinarians, ethologists, and behaviorists. Using the interdisciplinary language of photography, Barbara Handelman illustrates and explains canine behavior and communication. Her book establishes a common understanding and vocabulary for people interested in, and working with, dogs.
Canine Behavior is structured in many user-friendly ways, including alphabetical organization of the terminology, cross referencing, and, both a detailed table of contents, and an index. Those interested in both wild and domestic dog behavior will spend hours, if not years, studying and learning from this book.
