If you know a dog then....

You need to read/listen to this book. The author is clearly a dog lover and her insights about how dogs function is wonderful. I took some lessons from this book and used them with my dogs. I have given a couple of copies of this book to other dog owners as a nice way to give them additional understanding of their constant and loyal companion. It is wonderful that the author reads for us. She is not broadway trained but her heart comes through.

Thought provoking, beautiful language

Love the scientific angle author uses to support the points she makes but also the evocative and loving description of her own dog. Really enjoyed this audiobook. Definitely changes the way one will look at a dog going forward!

inside of a DOG

A wonderful depiction of a dog's thoughts and behaviors ... A lasting tribute to Pump! I feel blessed to have finally listened to this FANTASTIC knowledge from a dog's perspective ... this is the stuff your VET fails to tell you! thank you

not very informative

This book didn't have much to offer. I expected to learn more about dog psychology but little in it was really all that new. the book read more like a memorial to the author's dog than anything of major importance. also the narrator sounded like siri, which made the experience worse.

Grapes and raisins are toxic to dogs!

Shame on you for publishing a book that promotes feeding dogs grapes and raisins. Grapes and raisins are highly toxic to dogs and a single grape or raisin can cause kidney failure and death. It’s incredibly ignorant and dangerous to include this reckless behavior in a book meant to inform people about dog behavior. Hopefully no dogs have been harmed due to your negligence.

I definitely enjoyed this book.

This book was definitely educational and I learn things I didn't know about. I really enjoyed listening to this every single time I got up and out of the shower. I even listen to it while with my dogs. I enjoyed every part of this book. Some parts even made me tear up but that's because I'm a very sensitive person to anything about dogs. I think this is a great book for anyone wanting to learn about dogs more. I highly recommend this book I really enjoyed it.

A must for dog owners

What did you like most about Inside of a Dog?

This is an extremely interesting audio book. Really well narrated. It was surprisingly engaging and informative and promised to get me looking at my dogs differently. It succeeded in this. The book is intentionally quite amusing in places.

Any additional comments?

Any dog owner would benefit from this. It will help you get some understanding of why your dog behaves the way it does and give you some idea about how to influence it. It is not a training guide though

A fascinating and balanced portrayal of the dog

Very enjoyable. Great science based listen for anyone even remotely interested in dogs. The science is portrayed in a highly accessible way, the writing is interesting, and all is enhanced by the narrator's performance. I particularly enjoyed the fact that the author doesn't just present and focus on the dry scientific facts, but also allows for the emotional consideration of the human-dog bond. I think it's a very good, balanced book.

Insightful read

I'm yet to find a book that so perfectly mirrors how I feel about our canine companions.

I would recommend this read for anybody, in fact I would insist!
