K9 Behaviour Basics book review
I have finally gotten the time to read Gerritsen, Haak and Prins’ “K9 Behavior Basics”. I had been wanting to get a few hours of concentration to read through this one for the longest of time.
What got me interested was the fact that Simon Prins was involved. Simon Prins is a somewhat of a R+ figure head, a pioneer in the training of police dogs who tirelessly campaigns for humane and rational methods for the training of police dogs in The Netherlands.
So I put everything else aside and did a marathon-read it this week-end. It was worth it: it turned out to be an interesting book with much food for thought.
This is the review I’ve written for it.
