Canine Ergonomics: The Science of Working Dogs by William S. Helton

Traditionally, information concerning working dogs is mostly hearsay, with the exchange of information informal at best and non-existent at worst. Most books available are too general in coverage or conversely, too specific.

This book, drawing on cutting edge research, unifies different perspectives into one global science.
