Since prehistoric times, humans and dogs have shared a unique bond and both have served each other well. Early people discarded food and as a result, wild wolves cast fear and caution aside, following and approaching their two-legged neighbors until they became less wary of each other. As humans hunted, fished, herded, and hauled, they found ways to benefit from the presence and talents of these animals. Over time, both learned to work together, rely on, and like each other. This book is a fascinating look at the distinct groups that have developed -- hunting, herding, working, and companion -- as humans selectively bred dogs to bring out desired attributes.
