Shan’s Shared Thoughts On Flight – attempts to convey my joy in flight

Wolves, Man, and Truth – an extensive document about wolf and wolf-dog hybrid behavior in the domestic environment

Be sure to visit my wolf photo gallery or wolf video gallery if you would like to see photos and videos of wolves and wolf-hybrids.

Wolves are well along the path to extinction. Efforts are being made by concerned individuals to preserve the few remaining sub-species of the animal that was man’s first companion, but what will be the results? Each group of wolf admirers is distinct, with widely differing views on how wolves should be managed, and by whom.

Topics covered include the behavior, bonding, and care of wolves and wolf-dog hybrids by private individuals. The target audience is anyone interested in wolf and wolf-dog hybrid behavior in the domestic environment. Words are not a substitute for hands-on experience. Many of the situations described within this document will be experienced by the typical owner of wolves and wolf-dog hybrids; however, there are no universal answers. Only hands-on training, preferably with an experienced owner, will teach a prospective owner the instinctual behavior required to successfully interact with wolves and wolf-dog hybrids.
