Horowitz explores the science of dog perception and cognition, while referencing experiences with her own dog's behavior. Describing the way our pets see, smell, and know in a way the average person can understand provides some much needed insight into why our dogs behave the way they do. Growing up with all kinds of pets and having a vested interest in animals since a young age, I feel like some of the pieces are old news to me. But the average pet owner who hasn't sought this information previously would do well to read this book. I can guarantee that anyone who thinks they know their furry companion well, will walk away with a much better understanding of this wonderful species.

I am only half way through the book right now, and will have a few plane rides this weekend to read some more. Full report to come once I finish!
