Last night, I read through the chapters in section 1. I have to say that I think that each chapter is going to be hit or miss with me.
For example, the chapter called “Chemistry and Constraints: How We Choose Our Dogs” wasn’t that enlightening. Jean even admits that there isn’t a lot of research about how we choose our dogs, and she confesses, “So, using a wholly rigorous approach — mulling it over in the shower and chatting with some dog friends — I have generated the following list of dog choice factors.” At least she’s honest, but in a book that throws Pavlov, Premack, and Pinker in the title, I figured the conclusions would be based more in research than mulling it over.
On the other hand, I really enjoyed the chapter called “Observation vs Interpretation.” She contrasts the behaviorism school of thought versus other interpreters, and I’m pretty sure she’s implying folks like Caesar Millan in the later case. It’s pretty clear from the subtext that she doesn’t like the whole “the dog is displaying his dominance” school of thought.
In the end, I think I’ll end up marking the chapters that are worth reading, and then taking the bibliography in the back and doing some further reading. This book is almost like a series of blog posts strung together, and although that’s not really what I look for in a book, it’s probably a good starting point for learning more about what we really know about animal behavior science.
