Yes and No. I liked the audio version, but because of the subject matter, I will most likely purchase the book as a reference book.
No. But that's not a bad thing. There was just so much information I wouldn't want to try to absorb it all at once.
This book was highly based in science. For people looking for a training manual, this would not be a good choice. The purpose of this book is to review what we know in the science of the domesticated dog and what we still need to learn. I found it very interesting, but I'm also pursuing a PhD in canine cognition. The great thing about Bradshaws writting, however, is that it's written for the general public, so it's not just understandable to academics.
One of the best! Absolutely great to listen to.
Rosalyn Landor did an amazing job. She told the story beautifully, I could hardly stop listening.
I am a novice dog trainer with a background in dolphin training. I love reading books that incorporate stories with lessons learned and tips to integrate into your own work. This book did a great job of explaining the science of neurobiology in a way that was easy to understand and grasp. It makes so much more sense why there's such a miscommunication between humans and dogs, and gives great advice on how to bridge that gap.
