A comprehensive introduction to the basic applied and scientific literature underlying effective treatment and training programs. Material is organized in a technical and scholarly manner that will appeal to the animal behavior specialist, while remaining relevant and accessible to the nonbehaviorist veterinarian, professional dog trainer, breeder, and serious hobbyist. Describes theoretical issues that impact learning and training in dogs, including the influence of evolution and artificial selection, development and the biological basis of canine behavior, learning and sensory abilities. Clear readable style, but technical.
