Only when an owner understands how a dog perceives his environment, can the dog's behaviour be fully appreciated. With this knowledge, aspects of a dog's personality that were previously a mystery, for example, some unpleasant behaviourism, become clear and may simply turn out to be a reaction to a very strong sensory impression. This book enables the reader to recognise these signs and avoid any future behavioural problems.
