by Lisa

A new book titled “Breed Differences in Dog Behavior: Why Tails Wag Differently” published by CABI is set to intrigue animal and veterinary science researchers, students, practitioners, and behaviorists. Authored by Renee L Ha, Tracy L Brad, and James C Ha, the book delves into the fascinating realm of breed-specific behavior in dogs, offering valuable insights for professionals and enthusiasts alike.

Over millennia, humans have selectively bred dogs for both physical and behavioral traits, resulting in a diverse array of breeds with distinct characteristics. While these breeding efforts have yielded many advantages, they have also led to unintended consequences, including predispositions to certain medical conditions and behavioral issues.
