Ethics and Ethology
This book will help you to achieve the best possible relationship with your dog. It explains the best way to motivate, lead and interact with dogs and how to simply enjoy the time together. Based on common-sense and empathy, the advice given to you in this book is also give from a purely ethnic point of view that is based on the so-called Preventions of Cruelty to Animals Act, official rules and recommendations. Moreover, modern ethology, which has shown us how dogs live naturally and what needs they have, plays a big role. Furthermore, findings from teaching psychology concerning the best training methods for dogs are considered –whether the dog learns something new or if the dog’s behaviour has to be corrected. The result is a clear plea for a gentle and positive approach.
