$17.95 U.S. - The Culture Clash
The most thought provoking book ever written on dog behavior and training! Generations of dogs have been labeled training-lemons for requiring actual motivation when all along they were perfectly normal.

However, all dogs need to be taught how to modify their normal and natural behaviors to adjust to human culture. Sadly, all too often, when the dog's way of life conflicts with human rules and standards, many dogs are discarded and summarily put to death.
That's quite The Culture Clash.
