About the author

IMG_6639I am the co-founder and head trainer at OhMyDog! (dog training school in The Hague) and run a behaviour therapy practice at Canis bonus. I graduated in Zoology, certified in dog training, and got a postgrad specialization in applied animal behaviour. When I am not training or rehabilitating dogs, I obsessively review dog books and write about dog behaviour for my own blog and other websites.

How the dog became the dog

Gargantuan survey of the body of knowledge on how dogs evolved, by Mark Derr. I have read it with a mix of pleasure and drudgery. It gets very technical, but offers a masterly critique on the relevant research. It approaches the topic from multiple disciplines like archaeology, molecular biology, history, and sociology. Very ambitious work.
