Description

The behaviour of domesticated animals is a subject of great interest to pet owners as well as to students of animal behaviour and veterinary medicine. Indeed, it is now attracting increasing attention among academic research workers and being taught to students of zoology and veterinary science. This book aims to present a readable but scientific overview of the behaviour of the species, adopting both a mechanistic and functional approach. The first half of the book is concerned mainly with physiological and psychological aspects of individuals, while the second half looks at social behaviour, relationships with humans and welfare. The final chapter considers problem behaviours and is written by a well-known behaviour therapist who runs clinics for such problems. The book should therefore appeal both to students and research workers as well as to members of the general public seeking a scientific but jargon-free approach to this fascinating subject.show more
