We've shared our lives with dogs for thousands of years, but they still

act in ways that baffle us. To help us understand them better, Dr.

Stanley Coren, the undisputed expert on dog behavior, intelligence, and

training, tells the story of how dogs evolved over time into the myriad

forms and breeds we love today. Not simply domesticated wolves, dogs are

actually much more complex than wild canines; their ability to adapt to a

man-made world is far more flexible, their personalities far more diverse.

Fascinating findings reveal which breeds were bred to become more dominant,

affectionate, cooperative, or even dangerous. This practical, surprising

book also presents -- for the first time -- the "Dog Behavior Inventory,"

a simple, fun test based on the personality-profiling questionnaires used

in human psychological studies that you can administer to your own dog to

get a detailed picture of his personality and how he compares to other

members of his breed. Then, using the findings of the U.S. Army's once-

classified studies of "Superdogs," you can train your pet to become a

real-life equivalent of Lassie and Rin Tin Tin -- a dog who is not

disturbed, angered, or frightened by anything.

Filled with the entertaining anecdotes and scientific data that Dr.

Coren's avid followers have come to expect and enjoy, this uniquely

complete guide to dog psychology can help you to select a new companion

and to understand and communicate better with your old friend.
