A great read about the true capacity of our furry friends

The Genius of Dogs is about how dogs have evolved through their close affiliation with humans, and how far science recently has come in understanding their unique genius.

The authors do this in a fun, engaging and conversational style, while at the same time dispelling some myths and perpetuated “truths” about dogs, and also about what “intelligence” really is.

For anyone who's interested in understanding what makes our furry friends tick, this is a great (e)book!

The genius of dogs

More science than practical advice for new dog owners. Came away with three insights on dog behavior. Hoping for more.

Appreciate

This is not a guide on how to train your dog, this book describes ways in which the wolf evolved with us over time to become the dog. The Dog and Humans are the most successful mammals on the planet, this book helps explain why.
