Acclaimed for its solid scientific research and entertaining, eminently readable style, andlt;iandgt;How Dogs Thinkandlt;/iandgt; gives you the insight that you need to understand the silly, quirky, and apparently irrational behaviors that dogs demonstrate, as well as those stunning flashes of brilliance and creativity that they also can display. It lets you see through a dogand#8217;s eyes, hear through his ears, and even sense the world through his nose, as Coren presents a fascinatand#173;ing picture of the way dogs interpret their world and their human companions, and of how they solve problems, learn, and take in new information.andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt;andlt;iandgt;How Dogs Thinkandlt;/iandgt; also answers questions about our canine companions that have puzzled many: Can dogs count? Do they have an appreciation of art or music? Can a dog learn how to do something just by watching another dog or even a person do it? Do dogs dream? What is the nature of dog personality? Which behaviors are prewired into your dog, and which can you actually change? And, can dogs actually sense future earthquakes or detect cancer?andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt;With sound behavioral science and numerous funny, informative anecdotes, experiments, and firsthand observations, andlt;iandgt;How Dogs Thinkandlt;/iandgt; shatters many common myths and misconcepand#173;tions about our four-legged friends and reveals a wealth of surprises about their mental abilities and potential. It will make you love and appreciate all dogsand#8212;including your ownand#8212;in wonderand#173;ful new ways.
