How Dogs Think: What the World Looks Like to Them and Why They Act the Way They Do Reviews
This is the second book by Stanley Coren that I have bought and read. The first book was "How to Speak Dog" which was a wonderful book on canine vocalizations, body language, etc. "How Dogs Think" is an excellent next step. The book almost has too much information about canine sensory perception and thought processes. It is an amazing look into the world of the canine which, unlike the human world which is interpreted largely through our eyes, is understood via exceptional scent and sound interpretating abilities. As such their brains work differently and respond to outside stimuli differently than humans. Fascinating book for those who are seriously interested in the subject matter. A serious book that provides real explanations to "How Dogs Think".
I am continually amazed at the writing of Stanley Coren. No matter how many of his books I read, he never really repeats himself. He may address similar problems but you always seem to be presented with another way of looking at it at so expanding your own thinking. This is an amazing look at & insight into 'How Dogs Think', literally. No one seems to give quite the same angles to ponder As this man. Read him & you will be amazed at how your perceptions, understanding of dogs is challenged & enhanced by this man.
This is the best explanation of dog psychology that I have found. It
Good book. I thought it was going to be a story, but it is more of a medical book. Still a good read and interesting book.
Amazing, fun, informative book about the inner life of dogs. Anyone that loves their dog will live this book.
very well written book.goes into too much detail for me,so i did skip around,but what i read i truly enjoyed.i recommend it.it gave me joy to know my dog is not as stupid as i thought,and has been 'playing' me for years. if you have a carin terrier,u know what i mean.
Best book I've ever read on how dogs relate to their environment. I work in veterinary medicine and was familiar with some and impressed by the other scientific studies referenced in the book. One of my dogs is blind and this book helped me to understand what that means to her. The book has given me many new insights into my dogs' world and I highly recommend it to anyone that lives or works with dogs. I've bought several copies and have given them to our graduating small animal residents.
One of the best and classic books on dogs. Every dog owner should read. I read first 15 years ago and have given it many times as a gifts
