Our Beck Valley Books review of Embracing the Wild in Your Dog, an Understanding of the Authors of Our Dog's Behavior-Nature and the Wolf by Bryan Bailey 'Big thanks to the author for using his expertise to help me understand my dogs more and it has taken our relationship to a new and better level.'.......
"Having rescue dogs with behavioral problems, that came with little or no history, I watched several dog trainer television programs, trying to impose their practices without success, I found the reasons why dogs behave the way they do in this book.
The author uses his expertise from his upbringing and experiences in racing dog mushing events to pass on invaluable advice. He does not tell you how to correct the behavior but why the behavior happens in the first place and if you know the root to the problem you can solve it.
The strong message is "nature demands obedience"and your dog, which has evolved from the wolf, needs to follow the rules of being in a pack. Every pack has a leader and all others must follow, therefore you have to be that leader. The author uses excellent examples of pack life, for example; when his pack leading dog was eating a bone, one of the pups tried to take it, the pack leader pinned the pup down to teach him his place. Now if this happened in another home or park a human would have interfered thus upsetting the order of the pack. He also goes on to explain that if the pack leading dog wanted the pup to have the bone he would have given him it, displaying submissive behavior, again the law of nature.
This book has taught me so much more about both dogs and I can now correct their behavior. I am proud to say, so far, it has worked. Big thanks to the author for using his expertise to help me understand my dogs more and it has taken our relationship to a new and better level."
