About this book

There are billions of dogs in the world, each with its own character and breed traits. Is it possible that all of these dogs have dominant personalities? Apply that concept to people: are all humans trying to dominate one another? The answer, of course, is no. Like us, dogs fit into many categories and not all of them want to be boss. Similarly, all people and dogs will boundary push; that's part of life and learning. This unique, myth-busting book encourages the reader to challenge old traditions and misconceptions about their canine companion, and question the advice given by out of touch dog trainers. It explains that the dominance method of training was in use long before any wolf pack hierarchy studies were carried out, and will help owners throw out old ideas and begin working with their dogs in an atmosphere of trust, love and mutual respect. Although there are numerous dog training books available, "The Truth about Wolves and Dogs" is a critique of traditional dog training and all the myths surrounding it, that will take the reader on a journey of discovery. Your dog will thank you for reading this book.

Biography

Toni Shelbourne is a successful Tellington TTouch Companion Animal Practitioner, and has worked professionally with dogs since 1989. In 2001 her work took her to the UK Wolf Conservation Trust, where she was introduced to a pack of socialised wolves. She went on to work with the pack for ten years as a Senior Wolf Handler and Education Officer. Through her time with these animals, Toni developed a unique insight into their behaviour, leading to her questioning ingrained ideas about alpha theory. Toni has written for several national dog magazines. This is her first book.
