This book is wonderful. All dog owners should read this!
Readers can actually interpret their dog's actions and know what their pets are thinking, and why they do some of the things they do.
it's a MUST READ for dog owners.

I picked this book up to read for my book club, and I found it to be an informative and entertaining look at what makes a dog tick. The author takes us on a journey, accompanied by her dog Pump, through the many facets of how dogs see, smell, think, and interact with each other.

I think what this book did for me was really show me what life is like from the perspective of my dogs. I have two beagles, who are as different as night and day, and I feel like I did gain some insight into both of them from reading this book. If nothing else, it made me give up a little on correcting some of the behaviors of my older, more frustrating dog. Which is not what the book was aiming for, but I learned through reading the book that this particular dog is just kind of a jerk, and hes probably going to stay that way.

This is a psychologist looking at dog behavior, she seems to delve into more scientific detail than most dog books. She looks into the anatomy of dogs eyes and tells how that is different than ours. Quite entertaining, for a scientifically oriented book, the author has a certain sense of humor.

I waited a long time for this book. Not worth it. I didn't learn anything that I didn't already read in any number of other books. Waste of time.
