Coon, K. 1977. _The Dog Intelligence Test_. New York: Avon, 90 p.

Fisher, John. _Why Does My Dog...?_. Howell Book House, New York;

A wide range of problems and various solutions are listed.
Sometimes the problems are solved with a change of diet, more
often with simple but effective techniques. It is written much
like an encyclopedia, each section describing a problem
followed with a series of questions and answers about the
problem. In most cases, the scenarios are supplied from actual
incidents in his practice. The author is a member of the
Association of Pet Behavior Counsellors (APBC), based in
Britain and Ireland.

Fogle, Bruce. _The Dog's Mind: Understanding Your Dog's Behavior_.
Howell Book House, 1992.
This appears to be the best, most comprehensive book
summarizing current research on canine psychology and behavior.
You won't find much in the way of how-to instructions, but you
will find alot of hard facts on every aspect of the canine mind
and personality. This book is well-written and very readable
even by the layperson.
