The first book to establish the now wildly popular category of dog psychology, THE INTELLIGENCE OF DOGS made headlines and news with its controversial rankings of smart dogs, lap dogs and watchdogs. Updated with the most recent scientific research, interviews with top breeders and trainers, and his own personal observations as a lifelong dog lover, Stanley Coren's first, and now classic, bestseller reveals some surprising facts about the intelligence of our closest animal companions. Dog lovers gain practical tips on evaluating their dog's intelligence, reading dog body language, understanding the sophisticated 'language' of a dog's bark, and tailoring a training programme to suit each dog's special needs. Here too are Coren's scientifically determined lists that rank more than one hundred breeds for obedience, problem-solving, and working intelligence, as well as for specialized tasks, such as being a guard dog or being safe around children. Whether your dog is pure bred or a mixed breed you can use the dog intelligence test that Coren provides to find out how smart your best friend is. Rich in wit, wisdom, and anecdotes, this new edition of THE INTELLIGENCE OF DOGS brings dog fanciers a greater understanding and enjoyment of the habits, antics and abilities of dogs.
