Unleashing Your Dog: A Field Guide to Giving Your Canine Companion the Best Life Possible Audible Audiolibro – Versión íntegra
No matter how cushy their lives, dogs live on our terms. They compromise their freedom and instinctual pleasure, as well as their innate strategies for coping with stress and anxiety, in exchange for the love, comfort, and care they get from us.
But it is possible to let dogs be dogs without wreaking havoc on our lives, as biologist Marc Bekoff and bioethicist Jessica Pierce show in this fascinating book. They begin by illuminating the true nature of dogs and helping us "walk in their paws". They reveal what smell, taste, touch, sight, and hearing mean to dogs and then guide listeners through everyday ways of enhancing dogs' freedom in safe, mutually happy ways. The rewards, they show, are great for dog and human alike.

It is written in very accessible prose with excellent references and opportunities for further reading without cluttering the text with in-line citations or being overwhelming. Although largely aimed at the North American market (it does cite the PDSA PAW Reports), it should be noted that some details are not pertinent to the UK. It is illegal to crop dogs' ears in the UK and non-clinical tail docking can only occur under limited circumstances in working dogs. I have some minor quibbles too: I think that it could come down on the side of non-aversive training a little more but it is clearly attempting to enter such debates in a commendably non-antagonistic manner. I am especially delighted that the authors mention over-exercise as well as lack of exercise and explain why running with dogs is rarely a good idea.
Best of all, it discusses dogs' need for mental stimulation as well as exercise. It covers basic skills in observing canine body language including common misconceptions (growl=bad, wagging tail=good for instance). It explains why hugging dogs is rarely a good thing and why so many of the behaviours that people dislike need to be accommodated, modified, sublimated or plain old allowed because they are natural canine behaviours. It mentions the imperative for undertaking lifelong training and dips into some of the most recent research to whet the appetite of the inquisitive reader for more.
