“Laure-Anne, you are the BOOK LADY ! You provide that function BRILLIANTLY for us all. As long as you can manage the books and tell us what’s worth reading, you are worth your weight in GOLD!,” Eric Brad (author, dog trainer, Canine Nation podcast host).
“Laure-Anne, I received my holiday gift to myself of the stack of books I ordered based on your reviews! Your reviews are a great gift to the Do No Harm animal behavior community. I’m currently listening to Bad Science in my car…Great find! Thank you for all your amazing work!” Linda Michaels (MA Psychology, Dog Psychologist On-Call, Victoria Stilwell Positively Dog Training)
Dog book reviews
I climb a mountain of books to keep up with dog behaviour: on training, genetics, ethology, psychiatry, client coaching, you name it. The higher I climb, the farther up the top seems to get. No matter, each book consolidates my understanding and enriches my perspective.
I collect the notes I keep on each book in this review page. As the years flew by, the collection of reviews grew and authors and publishers started to send me their work for more reviews. I had to learn speed-reading just to keep up, and there are always at least five half-read books within a meter of me. Maybe one day I’ll reach the top of the mountain and will have no more books to read. I doubt it.
Here is the list of books I am dying to review right now. If you’re feeling particularly generous and want to help this modest reviewer out, you can donate one of these books. In that case, write me a mail with the name of the book you’d like to donate. See ‘Want your book reviewed’ if you are an author or publisher and would like one of your books reviewed here.

Want your dog book reviewed?
Please mail me on info at canisbonus dot com, so I can send you my postal address (I only review hard copies).
Reviews are free to avoid a conflict of interest, so there is no guarantee of a raving review. If it’s good, I share it on Amazon. If it’s not, I try to keep my comments kind and fair.
I want to read each book with the attention it deserves. As there are a few in the pipeline already, we could be talking months before your review appears.
