Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Relying on the expertise of veterinarians, animal behaviorists, and zoologists, these two titles explore the connection of domestic dogs and cats to their counterparts in the wild to help owners better understand their pets. Clearly explained are the similarities between big cats and domestic cats (for example, hunting, the senses, and territoriality) and the common traits of wolves and domestic dogs (e.g., pack mentality, canine teeth, and ears). Chapters on behavior discuss body language, vocal language, learning, and intelligence. The advice on nutrition, health problems, pregnancy, aging pets, and emergency care is straightforward and easy to understand. Dispersed throughout, informational boxes give concise advice and checklists on topics such as alternative vet care, defending territory, and bathing. Each volume has 300 wonderful full-color illustrations and photographs. More informative than The Tiger on Your Couch: What the Big Cats Can Teach You About Your House Cat (LJ 3/1/92), these volumes are entertaining as well as educational and would be useful in public and school libraries.AEva Lautemann, Georgia Perimeter Coll.

Review

"Dogs possess many of the qualities to which we also aspire, attributes such as intelligence,

A very comprehensive book; everything from dog behavior in the wild, to your pet's behavior, to how to take care and train your pet. I own 2 dogs and have obedience trained them and this book was correct on so many points that are so important to a successful pet/owner relationship. Wonderful photos and captions emphasize all the learning points. I especially liked the Dog Care section that showed basic health care for your dog. Overall a wonderful and broad range of topics that helped me understand my dogs even more.
