You and other dogs 8. Understanding humans 9. The autumn years 10. Problems you might face
I just love this concept - our world from the dogs' point of view. Dogs are dogs; they do doggy things and see (hear and smell) the world very differently from us. Sadly, all too often, dogs are punished for being 'bad' when they simply didn't appreciate the human way, understand the house rules, or perceive the instructions. Karen's well-written, beautifully illustrated, unique and fascinating book is a must-read for all dog-interested people. Your dog will thank you for it. Ian Dunbar PhD, BVetMed, MRCVS Founder, Association of Professional Dog Trainers Karen is the wisest professional dog person i know. If people were animals in former lives, she was definitely canine.
