I found this book on a Best Bets shelf at the library. It's an interesting approach to understanding your dog based on characteristics of the breed groups it's in. Mixed breeds could be assumed to have both groups traits in varying degrees. Since I've had scent hounds most of my life, I eagerly scanned the breed and it was laugh-out-loud funny and true. Kim Brophey, the author, does a great job in describing the psychological focus of each breed. This book would really be helpful for people look ...more

I won this book through Good Reads. I was very excited because I have a crazy Australian Shepherd . We wanted some ideas for ways to deal with some of her odd behaviors. This book divides breeds into different groups based on what they have originally been bred for over the years. It really gets you thinking about why your dog acts like it does due to history and its original job. Very informative and easy to read and understand though I still have many questions concerning my dog. There are som ...more

Interesting book about your dogs behavior based on information from over twenty scientific disciplines into four comprehensive elements: learning, environment, genetics, and self. If you've got a mix like me you can take a test here https://www.thedogkey.com/app-main.html to find out or confirm your guess (like my scent hound fur baby) of what the dominant type might be.

Not a training guide.

“Game-changing” is a bit overstating the point...

I was reasonably satisfied with this book. I have a crazy pooch who is a handful. We've done all sorts of training, and I've read all manner of books. Brophey's book is user-friendly in comparison to other more training directed books, which seem steeped in the vernacular meant for professional trainers. This book is better suited to those of us outside of the profession seeking help and knowledge about our dogs. This Book is not going to solve every problem, but instead is going to help you wit ...more
