About the Author

Adam Miklosi, Head of Department, Department of Ethology, Eotvos University


This book combines knowledge on dog behavior, cognition, evolution and even covers some societal aspects. As such, it should find an honorable place in the bookshelves of diverse reader audiences, from researchers interested in specific questions in animal cognition to deeply interested pet owners. * Dr. Kristina Noreikiene, Estonian University of Life Sciences, ISBE Newsletter *
A must read for anyone with an interest in the history and recent advances of scientific research into companion animals, from veterinarians and behavioural practitioners to students of animal cognition and behaviour. * Victoria Ratcliffe and David Reby, Animal Behaviour *
This is the first book to collate and synthesize the recent burgeoning primary research literature on dog behaviour, evolution, and cognition. ... I highly recommend it for all people interested in the behavior of dogs and some of their wild relatives. ... Each time I go to it I'm amazed by its breadth and the care with which Dr. Miklosi covers numerous diverse topics. * Marc Bekoff, Psychology Today *
