image of the book dogs by Ray Coppinger, a book abour canine behaviour, canine origin, and how to train your dog

Definitely the best book I've ever read on dog origins and behaviour by Ray Coppinger. Ray has a unique view on his subject matter gained from many years of research with a wide range of dog breeds.

Well worth the read!

My name is Yoni (a short for Jonathan), I am 21 years old and I live in Israel. My family which consists of my parents, my brother and my sister (which lives with her husband and their female dog just next door where our gardens are attached), now Gnocchi.

Gnocchi is doing really well. She is very sociable and a really good dog.

She does like to lie on the floor (sometimes she reminds me of a white bear carpet as seen in the movies...)

She is still only very young and small.

  Gnocchi does like to play with Nana's fur and Nana doesn't like it real much, but they are really great. She is a wonderful dog.
