Expanded Description:

Is it heredity or environment that shapes the dog? Researchers J.P. Scott and John L. Fuller, authors of Genetics and Social Behavior of the Dog, bred and cross-bred dogs in their quest to understand human heredity and behavior. Their research yielded a gold mine of data that Pfaffenberger turned into practical information for dog breeders and trainers. Learn about the critical stages of puppy development, how breed differences make dogs suitable for specialized work, and how to breed and socialize temperamentally sound dogs. Reprint of a 1963 classic.

Today’s experts recommend The New Knowledge of Dog Behavior
Every time I hear someone talking about dogs as being ‘hard wired’ for behavior; or self-centered, food-seeking gluttons, eager to be manipulated with a tidbit or click, I get out my copy of this book and my faith in dog and man is rejuvenated.
William E. Campbell is the author of Behavior Problems in Dogs & Dog Behavior Problems: The Counselor’s Handbook.

The description of developmental stages in New Knowledge was, and is, quite unique, forming the basis of all subsequent puppy training and husbandry tests, including my own. Most importantly it emphasizes that puppies must be socialized towards people and dogs BEFORE they are three month’s old!!!
Ian Dunbar, DVM, is the author of How to Teach a New Dog Old Tricks & Sirius Puppy Training, among others.

Classic Timeless Must Read, December 28, 2010
Reviewer: Barbara Lefever
Classic for all dog lovers, dog trainers, dog breeders, dog show enthusiasts, pet owners, veterinarians, scholars, and anyone in any dog business. Timeless. Despite the date of 1963, I began reading this book and cannot put it down.



Wisdom and common sense leaps from the pages! Ian Dunbar gives this book a good review, which gave me reason to purchase it.



This book is a MUST READ to any aspiring dog trainer, APDT, CPDT or anyone who would love to hear sound advice and wonderful stories of a man who shaped history in his most humble approach.



Strongly recommend to any Biology Major student enrolled in college, the scientific research proves invaluable.
Must Read for any dog breeder. If I could wave a magic wand and make anyone read before breeding puppies, use Clarence Pfaffenberger's insight and years of experience, please. Health testing should be a pre-requisite before puppies are created- see Chapter XVI pages 203 to 206.



Thank you to MaryJo in Texas, for putting this book in my hands.



Grateful reader and lifelong student
