    Anybody read this? Reviews? Opinions?

    I'd like to get it, just to see the "research." Research is in quotes because all I could find for credentials for the authors is this, "The authors’ previous education is in psychology, philosophy, biology, animal behavior and social trends." Previous to what? I wonder? I'd like to see degree credentials, what university they were earned at and when. If ever. The way that is written they could each have taken one course in a subject. Heck, I could say that about myself too.

    Glancing through the summery on Amazon... It mentions dogs being crated for 18 to 23 hours a day! I would be completely against that kind of crate use which is completely different from having a crate in the house to contain a puppy for a few hours during the day for its own safety and sanity of the owners along with many other situations one may need to contain a dog safely. Any isolation for that length of time on a regular basis would not be suitable.

    I think the title if this book is deliberately provocative when the blurb discusses more positive training. It would be interesting to compare the sentiment of the text to the title.

    Sheesh! Talk about click bait!
    And what "segments" are pressuring people to crate their pup for 18 hours or more!??!?
    Clearly the previous title wasn't as eye-catching, "Dogs Hate Crates is the new updated version of the book originally titled Caged Love."
