From the back:

Canine Behavior: A Photo Illustrated Handbook is a must read for learning about what our best friends are saying to their dog and human companions. It’s said that a picture is worth a thousand words and Barbara Handelman shows how true this is. Dogs around the world will surely benefit from this easy to read book.”

Marc Bekoff is Professor Emeritus of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at the University of Colorado, Boulder; a Fellow of the Animal Behavior Society; and a former Guggenheim Fellow.

“This book has the best array of illustrations of canid behavior that we’ve ever seen. Each one is of professional quality, even when showing those brief, subtle motions that make up a sequence of motor patterns so critical for canid communication or performance. The inclusion of Monty Sloan’s photographs of wolves at Wolf Park give a persepective to ‘Canine Behavior’ that is varied, in-depth, and unusual in canid behavior literature.”

Raymond and Lorna Coppinger, Co-authors of DOGS. Raymond is Professor Emeritus of Biology at Hampshire College and on the Graduate Faculty, University of Massachusetts. Lorna is the award-winning author of The World of Sled Dogs.

Canine Behavior: A Photo Illustrated Handbook is an invaluable reference tool for dog enthusiasts of all levels. The photographs are spectacular; the book is worth buying for the pictures alone! The text provides insight into the intent of and the meaning behind our dogs’ actions. Understanding what they are telling us (via their body language) is the first step in preventing and resolving behavior problems. Barbara Handelman graciously shares her knowledge and experience in this wonderful book, which will certainly help readers increase their knowledge and understanding of their canine companion.”
