This is a book for people with a particular interest in dog genetics, either as breeders, or because they are more generally interested genetic issues relating to dogs. It's quite technical and expensive and is very thorough - not a book for most pet owners! There are nineteen articles which examine different aspects of canine genetics, such as origins of dogs, the impact of domestication, and genetic issues relating to disease and behaviour. The book is as up to date as is possible in a fast changing field, since it came out in 2001. It's a key text for students of canine genetics.
