This is an extremely interesting audio book. Really well narrated. It was surprisingly engaging and informative and promised to get me looking at my dogs differently. It succeeded in this. The book is intentionally quite amusing in places.
Any dog owner would benefit from this. It will help you get some understanding of why your dog behaves the way it does and give you some idea about how to influence it. It is not a training guide though
"A great insight to a dog 's life"
A must read for every dog owner . you will never look at your dog the same way again
"Thought provoking, beautiful language"
Love the scientific angle author uses to support the points she makes but also the evocative and loving description of her own dog. Really enjoyed this audiobook. Definitely changes the way one will look at a dog going forward!
"inside of a DOG"
A wonderful depiction of a dog's thoughts and behaviors ... A lasting tribute to Pump! I feel blessed to have finally listened to this FANTASTIC knowledge from a dog's perspective ... this is the stuff your VET fails to tell you! thank you
I loved the book. although a little overwhelming with the science sometimes, there was tons of great info and I look at my dog differently Anna written more understanding now.
"If you know a dog then...."
You need to read/listen to this book. The author is clearly a dog lover and her insights about how dogs function is wonderful. I took some lessons from this book and used them with my dogs. I have given a couple of copies of this book to other dog owners as a nice way to give them additional understanding of their constant and loyal companion. It is wonderful that the author reads for us. She is not broadway trained but her heart comes through.
I am always looking to learn more about dogs and this book expanded my world of thinking about them.
"Wonderful mix of Science and love for dogs"
The prose and science that make up this book is inspiring.
The author takes her readers/ listeners through the world of what dogs can experience in hand with the life and memory of Pumpernickel.
This is a must read/listen for every dog lover who wants to bond stronger with his furry friend.
"Good story but monotone reader"
The story was well written and the information provided was very interesting. However, the reader was a little too monotone and mellow in the reading making it difficult to stay focused on the book at times.
Horowitz yes/ White, absolutely not!
Great subject matter provided in a voice reminiscent of of Google Maps.
Robotic is the best word for her reading of a very good book
The problem was not with the text of the book.
Why is it that so often, when you provide a book that is read by someone other than the author, the reader seems to have less affect than Siri?
"I definitely enjoyed this book."
This book was definitely educational and I learn things I didn't know about. I really enjoyed listening to this every single time I got up and out of the shower. I even listen to it while with my dogs. I enjoyed every part of this book. Some parts even made me tear up but that's because I'm a very sensitive person to anything about dogs. I think this is a great book for anyone wanting to learn about dogs more. I highly recommend this book I really enjoyed it.
