Understanding dog behavior by reading the hidden life of dogs by elizabeth thomas

Nonmating drugs did not prevent the unwanted pregnancy; spaying her dog definitely would have. Illustrations in this book would have little use as there is no way of really describing every action made by the dogs. Another interesting topic covered is how dogs behave with each other. Misha was clearly able to navigate himself but when with another dog, he would become lost.

Clearly there was much more effort involved. In general, the book was at an excellent standard, very easy to read, not too long and no major confusions. After careful observation it was seen that the other dog could easily lose track of where she was and mislead Misha.

Later in the book she describes how a roaming spaniel leaped over her fence and forceably mated with another one of her dogs. It was explained how a dog defended a bird and mouse in a cage from another excited dog in the same house.

It is evident that her success is due to her intense research as she has travelled the world while writing her books. There is no doubt in my mind that her little car-dodging husky made numerous attempts to populate all of Cambridge with his offspring.

How did the dog know how to cross a highway on its own? The interest is maintained throughout the book purely because of the fascinating information given about this species, information that had not been studied before. She obviously does not see the irony in this statement -- Misha undoubtably fathered numerous unwanted pups, many of which may well have would up in the same animal shelter as the doomed St.

She mentions a St. Each single chapter of this book brings up a new issue and investigates it. This book tried to get the idea across that humans knew only very little about dogs and their patterns. Also, I must agree that quite a lot of her conculsions involved a large amount of common sense.

Beginning with an introductory character, Misha who was a Husky, began the book well. After intense observations on Misha, some ideas were brought up. Clearly many tiring and endless hours have been put in to make this book a success and how it was done is really amazing.

This is a book that is unlike any book ever written as it takes the perspective from a different angle. Elizabeth looked after more than twenty dogs, spent all her spare time observing them, walking with them until she saw why they did what they did.

These small details made the book enjoyable to read as well as being useful information. The book goes on to explaining what occurs between the dogs when they mate, why some dogs kill their litter and many other topics.Sep 10,  · Read The Hidden Life of Dogs by Elizabeth Marshall Thomas by Elizabeth Marshall Thomas by Elizabeth Marshall Thomas for free with a 30 day free trial.
