Culture Clash By Jean Donaldson

Generations of dogs have been labeled as training-lemons for requiring actual motivation when all along they were perfectly... More > normal. Numerous other completely and utterly normal dogs have been branded as canine misfits simply because they grew up to act like dogs.

However, all dogs need to be taught how to modify their normal and natural behaviors to adjust to human culture. Sadly, all too often, when the dog's way of life conflicts with human rules and standards, many dogs are discarded and summarily put to death. That's quite the Culture Clash. “Simply, the best dog book I have ever read!” -Dr Ian Dunbar, Founder of the Association of Pet Dog Trainers (APDT)< Less
