“More importantly, modern dogs simply don’t behave like modern wolves. Popular dog “experts” like Cesar Millan may tell you that a good dog owner needs to play the role of the alpha wolf, the dominant pack leader. But the fact is that dogs don’t live in hierarchically organized packs. Indeed it’s doubtful that most wolves live this way.”
Raymond Coppinger, How Dogs Work

“But without people, the village dog and pampered pet alike would soon disappear—dogs would become extinct.”
Raymond Coppinger, What is a dog?

“Moreover, like eyes and arms, the fundamental structures of the mind (and the informational capacities they support) aren’t acquired through experience: the pioneering ethologists realized that behavior in general must be understood in the light of evolution, and this same conviction is held by the new wave of cognitive ethologists. Whatever else may be said, we expect to find that many (if not all) of the critical properties of animal minds are—like motor patterns—intrinsic traits of an organism that are adaptive consequences of evolution.”
