"Extremely well written, overflowing with useful down-to-earth information. My only complaint is that because of the title, only wolfdog people will read this book. Wolfdogs A-Z should be required reading for all companions of canines!"
— Dr. Ian Dunbar, veterinarian, animal behaviorist & author
"Impossible to put down. A must-read for anybody who has an interest in these sometimes difficult, often rewarding animal companions. A great book!"
— Monty Sloan, Wolf Behavior Specialist, Wolf Park, Indiana
