The Boy Who Was Raised as a Dog: And Other Stories from a Child Psychiatrist's Notebook Child Psychiatrist's ...
Required Reading for Humans
This is a largely accessible book, even though it does discuss brain functioning. It tends to be repetitive in this regard, but since the brain is a central aspect of the book and the brain can be difficult to grasp, I don't think it is too repetitious. In between brain discussions, it reads like a novel. You do not have to be a brain surgeon or a psychiatrist to read this book. This is an ...
Inside of a Dog: What Dogs See, Smell, and Know
Applied this book to GiGi
I enjoyed reading this book, it is well written. But the test of this kind of book is if you can apply what you learn. I wasn't even done reading the book when I was able to apply its lessons to our small dog. I can now convey what I want to Gigi much more quickly than before. It makes our relationship just a tad better.
What the Dog Saw: And Other Adventures
Little, Brown and Company
The book is a collection of "intellectual adventure stories", as the author calls them, spanning a wide variety of subjects, but many of which all of us deal with in everyday life: paradox of choice, dealing with uncertainty, prodigy vs. late bloomer, and the list goes on. Each of the stories is a highly engaging read and one that is guaranteed to make you re-examine your own beliefs and ...

Cesar's Way: The Natural, Everyday Guide to Understanding and Correcting Common Dog Problems
Melissa Jo Peltier
Three Rivers Press
No quick fix - his "way" requires connecting with nature
Cesar's TV show amazed me how the dog owners always blame their dog for having all sorts of "human behavior" type problems. Then Cesar rehabilitates the dog from the sick behavior of the owners only to find they are unable to change their ways. EXAMPLE: One woman had a hyperactive miniature pinscher that was totally out of control. She never exercised the dog, let alone trained him. Cesar ...

Dr. Pitcairn's New Complete Guide to Natural Health for Dogs and Cats
Richard H. Pitcairn D.V.M.
Susan Hubble Pitcairn
Great Resource! Invaluable!
I bought 3 of these after Dr Pitcairn's name kept appearing as I researched holistic pet care information (I gave one to my son and one to a close friend who have dogs). I have been feeding a raw diet to my 2 dogs and 3 cats for over 2 years now, and have been an advocate against frequent vaccinations for my pets for quite some time. I have read about and donated to the "Rabies Challenge Fund" ...
City Dog, Country Frog
Hyperion Book CH
This beautiful, heartwarming story about friendship will charm both children and adults alike!
City Dog ran like the wind across the field in front of the old farmhouse until he saw something very unusual sitting on a rock. Very soon he had met the acquaintance of Country Frog perched on a rock. He sat right down next to him on a rock peering into his big googly eyes. His tail was wagging when he asked what Country Frog was up to. "Waiting for a friend." There wasn't anyone in sight, ...
A Dog's Purpose
W. Bruce Cameron
Dog lovers will absolutely love this book. The author masterfully captures what many of us would imagine to be the thought processes of our dogs, and makes the reader think about the role we play in our pets' lives, for good and for bad. While the book has its uplifting moments, make sure to have some tissues nearby as there are many, many tearful moments in the story of this dog's numerous ...
The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time
Another great read! This one is very similar to 600 HOURS OF EDWARD, in that it also has a main character with autism. Christopher is not quite as high-functioning as Edward was, but very gifted in math. he too is obsessive-compulsive, but with little control over his emotions. He is trying though. I only hope the rest of my books to be read are as good!
Dog on It: A Chet and Bernie Mystery (Chet and Bernie Mysteries)
A fun, light read
I picked this up at my local library on a whim. It was so entertaining. The author really writes from Chet's (the dog's) point of view. The story moves quickly and we never forget we're seeing everything from the dog's viewpoint. I hope this becomes an ongoing series.
Blue Sky Press
Dog Heaven is Heavenly
I received this book as a gift from my husband a few days after our sweet Beagle, Max, departed this earth to run free in the forests of heaven. The colorful illustrations are thoroughly charming and the story is comforting and touching in equal measure. The final page brought tears to my eyes--not all that uncommon in the days after Max's death. I recommend "Dog Heaven" to anyone who has loved ...
For the Love of a Dog: Understanding Emotion in You and Your Best Friend
Filled with knowledge, love, tears and humor
This is my first very review of any book because I enjoyed reading it so much and feel very strongly about the knowledge conveyed in this books. It contains invaluable and science-based information for any dog owner. I didn't think that it was possible, but I love my dog even more after reading this book. What impressed me the most is that it is written so beautifully that even I were not an avid ...
My Life in Dog Years
For many ages.
My one boy skipped reading as much as he could. Then, he simply read it. I had to pry it away from him at bedtime. He's 9.
One Good Dog
St. Martin's Press
One Good Book!!
One Good Dog is one really good book. The author grabbed me right from the very first chapter. She does a wonderful job of providing insight into pit bull Chance's mind. I felt my dogs at various points in their lives had probably had some of the same thoughts as Chance. The main character Adam March is definitely a flawed person but I ultimately wanted to root for both Adam and Chance. ...
On Talking Terms With Dogs: Calming Signals
I wasn't sure what to expect with such a small book, but in its simplicity it was very informative. A great starting place for anyone who wants to learn more about what your dog is thinking.
The Power of Positive Dog Training
Howell Book House
Great training book!
I've read many training books and used many training techniques, and I recommend this one because of its emotional approach. It gets you to think like your dog instead of getting frustrated figuring out what your dog is trying to do - very helpful and different than other books (if you like Cesar Millan you will like this one). And it's a great read!
Don't Let's Go to the Dogs Tonight: An African Childhood
Random House Trade Paperbacks
The story of Fuller's very amazing upbringing
Fuller describes her African childhood in detail, from the death of her sibling to playing in the wild. Her British parents rather liked living in remote locations such as Zimbabwe and brought their daughters with them. At some points in the book, it is hard to believe that the story of Fuller's very amazing upbringing is true.
How to Steal a Dog
How to steal my heart
What a great middle-grade novel -- good for third/fourth grade I'd say -- about a girl who's Dad abandoned the family and she and her little brother and mom have to live in their car. Mom works 2 jobs and is trying to save enough to get an apartment. The girl gets the idea to steal a dog and then return the dog to get the reward money. She does this but it doesn't turn out like she thought. This ...
How to Be Your Dog's Best Friend: The Classic Training Manual for Dog Owners (Revised & Updated Edition)
The Monks of New Skete
Little, Brown and Company
Removed "alpha roll" from the book, so you really can become a best friend
As I was preparing to adopt a new puppy, How to Be Your Dog's Best Friend: The Classic Training Manual for Dog Owners (Revised & Updated Edition) was recommended to me as a gold standard in dog raising. Also recommended was The Art of Raising a Puppy which I have also written a review for. During my investigation of the book and the method's employed by the Monks of New Skete, I learned about ...
