      I first learned about this book when I was a pet sitter. I have to say it is both an enjoyable read and extremely useful. The author combines a mixture of scientific research, stories from pet owners and professional experience to show you how to more effectively communicate with your dog.

      What is especially interesting is how she


      helps you understand things from the dog’s point of view. For instance, dogs rely on body language to interpret what you want them to do. But since different people in the same household use different body language and even the same person sometimes changes their posture and tone when communicating with their dog, all of this can be very confusing to the dog. She points out that it is helpful to practice consistency when communicating with your dog.

      Another fascinating detail is the section about dog’s sense of smell. It is so, so much more powerful than we can even imagine. I forget what the percentage is that she mentioned…something like 300 times more powerful ...

      than human beings’ sense of smell. This is why it is so important that they have the opportunity to sniff their surroundings and even the people around them. They can identify thousands and thousands of different scents.

      Their are brief sections where she does give a bit more scientific analysis than I really enjoy, but just when

      it is starting to get a little too dry and academic, she switches back to more entertaining, relatable material.

      I would highly recommend this to any dog owner or even someone who has issues with dogs, such as fear around dogs. Her observations will make a deep impression on you and the way you relate to dogs.
