Review EMBRACING THE WILD IN YOUR DOG by Bryan BaileyWow Never your ordinary dog book here Bryan Bailey comes barreling out of nowhere actually out of Nature and evolution with an entirely new standpoint That dog you think you own in my case they own me is not just some domesticated human trained creature here Narcissus in Chains (Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter, for its owner s delectation Sorry that dog is a domestic wolf product of millions of years of evolution and as Wolf is so is Dog Author Bailey advises look at Nature Examine Wolf behavior Here is where you willind the template Cinderella for a Night (36 Hours, for your Dog not by studying human behavior and interactions It s definitely an education in which I intend to engage This book recounts the author s experience of growing up in the Alaskan wild under the tutelage of his mentor a Special Forces survival instructor who taught him to understand how nature and the wolf contribute to the behavior of dogs The author s upbringing had a direct impact on his philosophy on dog training which is based on the tenet that dogs are really wolves and behave as wild animals This belief is reinforced by the author s personal accounts of tragic events caused by dog owners who treat their pets as humans and expect them to behave like humansIound this book very interesting because it supports my husband s approach to training our dog and he was the best behaved dog I have ever seen I also enjoyed the great photos and uotes at the beginning of each chapter However I have one suggestion Friend Foe for the author hyperlink theootnotes I also would like to have learned about the author s training techniues but I can understand that each case is individual Interested readers can visit the author s ProTrain Memphis website to The Longevity Diet find out about his training programs One thing is certain After reading this book you will never look at your dog the same again You will come to know the wolf in your dogI received this book in returnor an honest reviewFull blog post Embracing the Wild in Your Dog An Understanding Of The Authors Of Our Dog s Behavior Nature And The Wolf considers the relationship between domestic dogs wolves and humans and is a recommendation Grassroots Innovation for any dog owner who seeks a discussion of the differences and similarities between dogs and their wolf brethren This isn t to say that Bailey claims that the wolf and the dog share the same characteristics he s careful to point out where their heritage links and where it diverges and also analyzes human influences on a dog s personality traits and development Comingrom a canine trainer with than enough experience in obedience this means that Embracing the Wild in Your Dog isn t so much about control techniues as it is about understanding the wild nature of the domestic dog and how to redirect these natural tendencies to tailor aggression and change undesirable habitsThat said the wolf in a domestic dog isn t something to be dominated so much as something to be embraced it s this process of acceptance and ine tuning that leads a canine trainer to the type of control that syncs with a dog s nature resulting in harmonious interactions or all involvedThis is not a dog training book however readers who approach it as such may be disappointed It s about understanding a dog s underlying psyche its sources and how to interact with the animal with this knowledge in mind and the approaches use the author s experience growing up in the Alaskan wild and his encounters with wolves as the starting point Architecture and Utopia for such an understandingUniue in its approachilled with the author s insights I changed how I ha.
