Interesting book but

Great book indeed, but why does the person reading sounds like an AI voice assistant?

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!

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.

not very informative

This book didn't have much to offer. I expected to learn more about dog psychology but little in it was really all that new. the book read more like a memorial to the author's dog than anything of major importance. also the narrator sounded like siri, which made the experience worse.

Pleasant but uninformative

Nothing surprising or insightful but a pleasant read. I was expecting more but this is pretty standard.

Great book, but read too institutionally.

This is a fascinating book that gives insight into tue mind of a dog, but the narrator sounds like an instituinal video from 1980s high school.

everyone who works with dogs should read this!

I have a service dog who is with me 24/7 she loves other dogs but doesn't like attention from strangers and so she ducks aeay behind me when a person comes up expecting to pet her. Often I get a response along the lines of "why is she so standoffish, doesn't like people." some people get offended. And I just tell them simply that she likes her personal space when it comes to other humans. she always has. I rescued her when she was three weeks old. bottle fed her. she's never been with anyone else and she's always been well cared for. dogs have autonomy just like we do. Horowitz explains this so very well in her book. I'm glad there are people who realize just how special dogs are for just being themselves. And how each one is unique. their biggest asset is not only in their ability to understand us, but in their relationship with us and how truly lucky we are to have such a genuine companion in dogs.

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.

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.
