Expanded Description:

From an animal behaviorist and dog enthusiast comes an adorable and informative guide to understanding how our canine friends see the world based on the #1 New York Times bestselling phenomenon, Inside of a Dog—now adapted for a younger audience!

Have you ever wondered what your dogs are thinking? What they’re feeling? Now you finally can! The answers will surprise and delight you as scientist and dog-owner Alexandra Horowitz explains how our four-legged friends perceive their daily worlds, each other, and that other quirky animal, the human.

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.

In clear, crisp prose, Horowitz introduces the reader to dogs' perceptual and cognitive abilities and then draws a picture of what it might be like to "be" a dog. What's it like to be able to smell not just every bit of open food in the house, but also to smell sadness in humans, or even the passage of time? How does a tiny dog manage to play successfully with a Great Dane? What is it like to hear the bodily vibrations of insects or the hum of a fluorescent light? Why "must" a person on a bicycle be chased? What's it like to use your mouth as a hand? In short, what is it like for a dog to experience life from 2' off the ground, amidst the smells of the sidewalk, gazing at our ankles or knees?

Age Range: 8 - 12 years

Everyone who lives with dogs should read this book, February 21, 2013
Reviewer: Laura Hills
This is by far the best book I've read on how dogs perceive the world around them. It's written with warmth, intelligence, and great analogies to help the reader better understand their dog's frame of reference.
 
AWESOME, October 15, 2010
Reviewer: Tiffanie Tayrien
Out of all the books I have read about dogs and thier behaviors, Inside of a Dog is definitely one of my favorites. It is scientific yet heartfelt, humorous but informative, and just plain awesome! I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who has a dog, is curious about dog behavior, or just plain wants a good read. ENJOY...
 
best dog book ever, September 22, 2010
Reviewer: Jayne Kamau
I've read lots of dog books, but none is as enlightening as this one. The section on the nose alone is worth the price. I'm giving a copy to all my dog friends this Christmas.
