What a gig - studying dogs all day, at the Barnard College Canine Cognition Center. Horowitz gives a thorough and very - um, human examination of the ways that dogs comprehend the world, and especially, how they interact with us. Dogs even are a tool-using species, she shows, and the tools are us!

A delightful new view of human-dog interaction. Yes, anthropomorphism is not bad. And, I always loved those kisses without giving any food.

I was profoundly disappointed with this book, I was hoping for a touchy feely, I love my dog, easy summer read but instead I found the author highly impersonal and the book too scientific and technical; might be up someones alley but not mine

This was a very good book. It reminds us that dogs are not wolves nor are they human, but they have been domesticated by us. The world is very different from a dogs-eye view.
