    Dogs have been mankind's faithful companions for tens of thousands of years, yet today they are regularly treated as either pack-following wolves or furry humans. The truth is, dogs are neither - and our misunderstanding has put them in serious crisis. What dogs really need is a spokesperson, someone who will assert their specific needs.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Dog Sense to be better than the print version?

    Yes and No. I liked the audio version, but because of the subject matter, I will most likely purchase the book as a reference book.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No. But that's not a bad thing. There was just so much information I wouldn't want to try to absorb it all at once.


    Any additional comments?

    This book was highly based in science. For people looking for a training manual, this would not be a good choice. The purpose of this book is to review what we know in the science of the domesticated dog and what we still need to learn. I found it very interesting, but I'm also pursuing a PhD in canine cognition. The great thing about Bradshaws writting, however, is that it's written for the general public, so it's not just understandable to academics.

    Beautiful Sorcha is the courageous young woman who risked all to save her family from a wicked curse and whose love shattered generations of hate and bridged two cultures. It is from her sacrifice that Sorcha's brothers were brought home to their ancestral fortress Sevenwaters, and her life has known much joy. But not all the brothers were able to fully escape the spell that transformed them into swans, and it is left to Sorcha's daughter, Liadan, to help fulfill the destiny of the Sevenwaters clan. Beloved child and dutiful daughter, Liadan embarks on a journey that shows her just how hard-won was the peace that she has known all her life.

  • For the Love of a Dog: Understanding Emotion in You and Your Best Friend

    Yes, humans and canines are different species, but current research provides fascinating, irrefutable evidence that what we share with our dogs is greater than how we differ. As behaviorist and zoologist Dr. Patricia McConnell tells us in this remarkable new book about emotions in dogs and in people, more and more scientists accept the premise that dogs have rich emotional lives, exhibiting a wide range of feelings, including fear, anger, surprise, sadness, and love.

    What did you love best about For the Love of a Dog?

    I am a novice dog trainer with a background in dolphin training. I love reading books that incorporate stories with lessons learned and tips to integrate into your own work. This book did a great job of explaining the science of neurobiology in a way that was easy to understand and grasp. It makes so much more sense why there's such a miscommunication between humans and dogs, and gives great advice on how to bridge that gap.
