There's a fascinating new book for dog lovers: Through a Dog’s Eyes by Jennifer Arnold (Spiegel & Grau). Arnold is the founder and executive director of Canine Assistants, a service-dog school, and the subject of a recent PBS special.
Through a Dog's Eyes posits the wonderful idea that humans cannot begin to understand canine behavior until they attempt to view the world through a dog’s eyes. Once you experience the world the way your dog does, you’ll have a better grasp on their behavior. Arnold has a truly unique understanding of dogs’ intelligence, emotion, and capabilities, and her successful training methods are based on teaching dogs to make choices rather than obeying commands. This is a book that will change your relationship with your beloved four-legged companions.
