7 out of 10

I got this good-condition softcover from the Little Free Library in Salem NH while dropping off some books of my own. Looks to be a good examination of the nature of dogs, by an author who's both scientist and dog-lover. Turning her affection for her pets into scientific observation makes for a fascinating book - even to this cat-person!

I appreciated many of her ideas, such as getting down on the floor to observe your house from your pet's point of view, and learning how dogs perceive objects with less of an anthropomorphic lens. And I liked her writing - the style's personal, clear, and informative. Her discussions of a dog's scent-based world vs. humans' rather... inconsistent... attitudes towards fragrances were lots of fun, and her observations include revelations about human behavior as well as that of dogs. Good book!
