Sami Gray, October 24, 2014 (view all comments by Sami Gray)
Like many dog-obsessive people, I find it fascinating to try to imagine how a dog experiences the world. Too often, people err on both ends of a continuum: either denying canine consciousness entirely, or seeing the dog as a short, fuzzy human with Judaeo-Christian moral ideas and post-Freudian neuroses. I think that our relationship with dogs is made possible in part by similarities, but enriched by differences (like the dog's present-centered, deeply sensory and nonverbal way of being).
Ethologist Horowitz reviews scientific evidence on the cognitive and perceptual world of dogs, their senses, social behavior, etc., to reach new understandings about the canine umwelt (as she terms it- "world view"). The science is presented in a lively and accessible way, in nicely written accounts of research by Horowitz herself and many others. The scientific material is interspersed with lovely passages that look like excerpts from a journal of close observations of her own dog. Smart and thought-provoking.

This book is a delightful surprise! I expected to learn a bit about dog behavior and get some clues about my own dogs. I did not expect to be charmed, amused, and unable to put this book down! I am sure that I communicate better with my dogs after reading this. The author is a sound scientist and a talented writer. What a delightful combination!
