Containing up-to-the minute research and providing many moments of dog-behavior recognition, this lively and absorbing book helps dog owners to see their best friend''s behavior in a different, and revealing, light.
From the Publisher:
Alexandra Horowitz offers readers a fresh look at the world of dogs--from the dog's point of view.
Annotation:
While people may not (yet) be able to converse with their canine companions, Alexandra Horowitz provides us with a tantalizing glimpse at some of what they might be thinking. Horowitz, a cognitive scientist, takes a look at the world from a dog's eye (or nose) view, revealing the myriad differences between canine perceptions and our own. While people tend to rely on sight to navigate the external world, dogs primarily use smell, although their senses of vision and hearing are usually stronger than our own. Horowitz investigates dogs' strange ability to sense changes in the weather or the imminent approach of death and analyzes up-to-the-minute scientific data which indicates that dogs can not only smell objects, but emotions.

Praise

"Horowitz will drop in some lovely observation, some unlikely study, some odd detail that causes one's heart to flutter with astonishment and gratitude." - Cathleen Schine 09/13/2009

"Horowitz sets out to study dogs for their own fascinating sake....INSIDE OF A DOG offers a thoughtful take on the interior life of the dog, a topic often left to poets and philosophers and MARLEY & ME...The result is a work long on insight and short on jargon." - Michael Schaffer 10/18/2009
