Reviews - What do customers think about The New Knowledge of Dog Behavior?

Worth its weight in gold  Dec 26, 2003
Without a doubt one of the most valuable books written, not only to the average dog owner but a MUST for the dog breeder and trainer. Pfaffenberger's work combined with Dr. Scotts and Fullers produced Guide Dogs for the Blind with a success rate of up to 98%.Any dog breeder or trainer who hasn't got this collection of incredible research in their library is really missing out. LOVE IT....LOVE IT....LOVE IT.
Lots of Practical Information  May 9, 2002
This book tells the story of Pfaffenberger's search to develop test for puppies to determine which would ultimately become good guide dogs. There are pearls of wisdom throughout this book. I have not seen info on issues he brings up before. Understand this is a story of what he went through but he discusses the science of dog behavior at that time and where his work went wrong and where it went right. Did you know it is best that hunting breeds be allowed to hunt even if they will do work where , if they hunt, it would be a detriment to the work. Allowing the hunting dogs to hunt for a season increased their success rate in these breeds. One might think this was counter-intuitive, but Pfaffenberger provides info to the contrary. I recommend this book for people who want even more detailed info on puppy tests and producing great working dogs.
New Knowedge of Dog Behavior  Jan 8, 2000
This is an excellent foundation book for anyone interested in dog behavior and/or training. This book explains how dog training/testing/methods came about as a result of the war dog effort, and how criteria was established for selecting dogs, inheritability factors, etc. It truly is a must for any serious dog trainer.
