Being a Dog: The World From Your Dog's Point of View

by Karen Wild Author

There are plenty of books out there about anthropomorphic pets who think human thoughts and do human things. This is not one of them. Instead, in this book, you'll discover the latest science put to use so as to help you understand what life may actually be like for your dog. Using neuroscience and biology, author Karen Wild reveals that dogs and humans are closely intertwined. Dogs process the emotion in human voices, think of us as their family, seek out eye contact, and even make use of the hormone oxytocin, which promotes affection in a wide array of animals. Wild sets out to answer questions about how your dog perceives you, other dogs, other animals, and other humans, helping you to understand why your pooch behaves the way they do and bringing you closer to your pet. A fascinating and adorable book.
