Man is not ape. Dog is not wolf. From startling facts about its origins, to the fundamental reasons behind dog and man's unbreakable attachment, Clever Dog: The Secrets Your Dog Wants You to Know explores the myths that so many pet owners have been led to believe - and forms conclusions as to how our future relationship with the dog needs to change in order to survive, and thrive.
With her unique understanding of the secret language of dogs and her belief that all dogs are 'clever dogs', Sarah uses amusing anecdote and useful case histories to discover the mysteries of dog behaviour and show us a way of communicating with the four-legged friend who shares our hearts and homes.
Dog lovers can look at their best friends in a new light and create the perfect bond. As a world-leading expert in canine psychology, and often acknowledged as the 'trainer's trainer', Sarah Whitehead shares her unique understanding of dogs in Clever Dog.
With sections on Life, Love, Health and Happiness, this is a book about how we can become a harmonious team with our best friend. Here at last are the secrets your dog wants you to know. With fascinating case studies and expert practical advice, Clever Dog is much more than a guidebook - it is the book your dog would want you to buy.

I am sure that Ms Whitehead knows a lot about dogs but I felt that her self satisfaction and her contempt for the rest of the human race did not make me want to learn anything from her!
Sarah Whitehead had been recommended by our puppy training tutor and she did not disappoint.
Most memorable chapter was when she identified a food allergy was the cause of the problem not a jealous pet.
I doubt it as I'm not a dog lover but maybe if I was with a friend who wanted to listen to it, then I would.
I became quite angry early on in the book when, in the first case study, the dog was misunderstood and mistreated by trainers who didn't have the same skills or aptitude as sarah.
Even though I'm not a dog lover, I was still interested in this book. I really liked the way concepts were presented with real case studies and could reason why sarah came up with her various strategies in trying to help both dog and owner. I thought Jane arnfield read this extremely well indeed.
well researched, written and read. full of case study examples dog owners can relate to supported by theory. a read for (potential) dog friends. a must.
I needed information to help with our 2 new labrador boys. wasn't sure if it was more preaching but I was very pleasantly surprised. informative and entertaining
