I run Canis bonus, a behaviour therapy  practice for dogs with behaviour problems. I am also the co-founder and head trainer at OhMyDog! (dog training school in The Hague). I graduated in Zoology, and am a licensed dog trainer and certified applied animal behaviourist. After my day job, I review dog books and write about behaviour for my blog and other specialist websites.

If you are near The Hague and have dog behaviour issues, drop me a line to make an appointment. I work in English, French, or Dutch and only use animal-friendly methods. You can find out more on my training page.

Domestic Animal Behavior

Domestic Animal Behavior is a 2011 text book about the behaviour of production and companion animals. It is aimed at academics looking to get a grip on the scientific body of knowledge on the behaviour of these animals. It reads like a systematic literature survey, with the full citations and jargon that go with it.

As one of the most widely cited pieces of writing on animal behaviour, it is well worth finding out more. Check out the full review here.
