Canine Behavior: A Photo Illustrated Handbook
The pictures are fantastic!

I wrote a book review for The Bark about the book "Canine Behavior: A Photo Illustrated Handbook" by Barbara Handelman. I liked the book very much but my main criticism of it was that the quality of the reproduction of the photos was poor. I thought it was just a result of color photos being printed in black and white leading to low contrast. Apparently, the issue was that the first printing didn't go right. However, the problem has been fixed so that the second printing is gorgeous with the photos showed off to full glory.

The author arranged to send me a second printing copy from Dogwise. This book is really lovely now that the photo issue has been fixed. It has the largest collection of photos I know of illustrating aspects of dog behavior and merits a place on the bookshelf of everyone interested in dogs.
