Publisher's Summary

Some time ago, dogs became as interwoven in the American culture as baseball, apple pie, and the Fourth of July. In fact, in most households, dogs have even trumped evolution itself and jumped straight to being four-legged “humans”, adorned with human names, designer outfits, and a place at the family dinner table. They’re no longer dogs to us. They're family! 

Yet, as nationally recognized, award-winning animal behaviorist and master trainer Bryan Bailey explains in his book Embracing the Wild in Your Dog, for all that man has done to carve the wolf from the wild to create a surrogate human, today's dog is still a wolf at heart and the accompanying instincts borne from such ancestry defines how the dog approaches its world. 

Reflective of his extensive background - studying wolf and other predatory behaviors worldwide, working alongside law enforcement and special service dogs, training in US Navy dolphin and sea lion projects, etc. - Bailey emphasizes the damaging and paralytic problem of attaching our human traits to our pets. Believing in a fairy tale world where dogs possess the same moral consciousness and sense of altruism as attributed to humans has led to a drastic increase in leash laws, dogs being outlawed in a rising number of city and national parks, some breeds being banned in several states, an alarming escalation of aggression to humans, a rising cost in homeowner and business insurance, and a record number of clinically maladaptive dogs. 

Through Embracing the Wild in Your Dog, listeners will gain the knowledge and tools to activate and deactivate natural impulses and mechanisms in their dog, leading to the harmonious existence and control they’ve always dreamed of.
