Dog’s Best Friend: A Brief History of an Unbreakable Bond

Simon Garfield

How did we arrive at the moment when a dog goes to the cinema? How did we realise that dogs could assist humans not only in hunting, but also in bomb disposal and cancer detection? When did pawsecco and naps on a luxury bed replace the scavenging of their wolf ancestors?


From the first glimpses of our early bond on ancient rock art to the latest scientific and psychological insights, from the Corgis at the Palace to the true story of the Labradoodle, Dog’s Best Friend is the story of a relationship built over 15,000 years that tells us much about dogs and even more about their owners.
