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!
