about

Before there was Scott and Fuller's Genetic and Social Behavior of the Dog or Clarence Pfaffenberger's New Knowledge of Dog Behavior, there was this book. Working Dogs is the story of a pioneering study undertaken in the 1920's and 30s to selectively breed dogs that were not only physically sound but also behaviorally stable. Realizing the potential for dogs to help mankind in variety of ways-as police dogs, herding dogs, guide dogs for the blind, and search and rescue dogs-the researchers wanted to improve the success rate of breeding that were able to work over an extended period of time with the minimum of fatigue and still fit into a family setting.
