Dogwatching: The Essential Guide to Dog Behaviour

Dogwatching: The Essential Guide to Dog Behaviour (EPUB ebook)

By Morris, Desmond

What is it about the canine personality which has singled this animal out from all the 4,236 species of non-human mammals to be man's closest companion? Strangely enough, all dogs, from scruffy mongrels to haughty show champs, are members of the same species - that of the wolf. I...n Dogwatching, zoologist Desmond Morris gives answers to fascinating fundamental questions about our canine companions - questions so often overlooked by standard dog books, which concentrate on grooming, feeding and veterinary care. It is a book for dog-lovers everywhere, one which will lead to an even deeper bond of understanding and an insight into such remarkable and delightful creatures.Why do dogs bark? Why does a frightened dog put its tail between its legs? Why do puppies chew slippers? Why does a dog bury a bone? Why does a Pointer point? Why do we cure a hangover with the 'hair of the dog'? Do dogs have a sixth sense? Why do some dogs chase their own tails?
