I bought this book 2 years ago as i have an interest in animal behaviour and studied for a degree in the subject. This is a very useful book for someone who is studying animal behaviour at university or college or has a general interest in the subject.

The front cover is appealing to look at and the contents laid out friendly to read. There is important chapters included in the book from how to do puppy classes to behavioural problems in ageing dogs.
It is very complex in some areas and touches on the physiological and biochemistry a lot, although, the animal psychology is very informative and to the point.

There has been a lot of research put in to the book from a variety of animal behaviourists nationwide in the U.K belonging to Animal Pet Behaviorist Counsellor Association (APBC) and put together and authored by David Appleby (a well recognised animal behaviourist).

Specialist areas of animal behaviour like problems with rabbits and cats are covered extensively, for example, rabbit aggression to dealing with cat aggression in a multi cat household.

There is also case reports from animal behavioural consultants on dogs and cats to read and gain knowledge on how each case is treated and diagnosed.
Canine Domestication and puppy development is also covered extensively explaining how a puppy matures and develops in to human society and the human pack. Thus, giving an understanding how to influence the dogs development.

Overall this is a very informative book for some with a general interest to a student studying Animal Behaviour. The price i paid was £15 but worth it as its very informative and up to date.
