Description

For all the love and attention we give dogs, much of what they do remains mysterious. Just think about different behaviors you see at a dog park. We have a good understanding of what it means when dogs wag their tails, but what about when they sniff and roll on a stinky spot? Why do they play tug-of-war with one dog, while showing their bellies to another? Why are some dogs shy, while others are bold? What goes on in dogs' heads and hearts-and how much can we know and understand? 

Canine Confidential has the answers. Written by award-winning scientist and lifelong dog lover Marc Bekoff, it not only brilliantly opens up the world of dog behavior, but also helps us understand how we can make our dogs' lives the best they can possibly be. 

Rooted in the most up-to-date science on cognition and emotion - fields that have exploded in recent years - Canine Confidential is a wonderfully accessible treasure trove of new information and myth-busting. Peeing, we learn, isn't always marking; grass-eating isn't always an attempt to trigger vomiting; it's okay to hug a dog - on their terms; and so much more. There's still much we don't know, but at the core of the book is the certainty that dogs do have deep emotional lives, and that as their companions we must try to make those lives as rich and fulfilling as possible.

A must read!

Awesome book that everyone should read!
We have so much to learn about dogs (and animals in general).
I always said that dogs are God gift to us as they are the best teachers!
Thanks for this great reminder 🙏🏻🐾

The narration was so BAD!

I’m not quite sure if the book was good or not, the narration was so bad I couldn’t get past the first 2 chapters...

For dog parents and hobby scientists

I have listened to plenty of books about dog behavior and science, and this one was really ... eye opening! Why? It is honest, the author simply says we really don't know much, and stresses how important it is to individually assess every dog, as every dog is different. I liked the examples, and the very positive approach towards dog-human relationships.

Absolutely Must Listen!

I urge every dog owner, lover and professional to listen to Canine Confidential. This book expands on so many avenues of our dog's behavior and well-being. Full of referenced studies to discuss why dogs do what they do. It also goes into the truth about dominance, dog parks, well-fare and the laws on dogs.
This book helped open up my mind to the individuality of each dog and how we must mind our dogs and remember how much we ask of them.
