Canine Confidential: Why Dogs Do What They Do
Marc Bekoff is both a renowned ethologist and a lifelong observer of and advocate for non-human animals (as he likes to call everyone but us). In his new book, Canine Confidential, he displays his depth of knowledge and involvement on both those fronts, gathering up the latest research from canine cognitive/behavioral fields (as well as his own) and presenting it to us would-be citizen scientists.
Bekoff uses an inviting conversational mode that makes complicated topics much easier to grasp. It is as if we had run into him at the local dog park and could ask those questions that pop up as we watch our dogs cavort with others of their species.
