Is it heredity or environment that shapes the dog? A happy accident on the way to understanding human behavior led to information that is still important for the modern dog breeder and trainer. After WWII researchers J.P. Scott and John L. Fuller, authors of Genetics and Social Behavior of the Dog, bred and cross-bred dogs in their quest to understand human heredity and behavior. Their research yielded a gold mine of data that Pfaffenberger turned into practical information for dog people.Today's dog breeder and trainer will learn: * How to help puppies achieve their maximum behavioral potential * How to utilize research on the critical stages of puppy development * About breed differences that make certain dogs suitable for specialized work * How to use this information to breed and socialize temperamentally sound dogs.
