"Chew on this: your dog is your mindfulness guru! You will bow, and say WOW, when you learn how." —Michael J. Gelb, author of How to Think Like Leonardo da Vinci
"There is no doubt that the ability to listen—to really, authentically listen—is one of the most important qualities of an effective leader, top salesperson, good friend, and successful family member. Who in the world, however, would believe that the very best teacher of this vital skill would be . . . our dog? Well, actually, practically anyone and everyone who has ever had a dog! In this terrific book, told through the eyes of a true dog-lover and expert on the topic of listening, we learn how to master the skill applied so naturally by our canine children." —Bob Burg, coauthor of The Go-Giver
"There's a reason so many people have a strong bond with their dog. A dog's full attention invites us to share more of our real selves with them, and opens the way for pure and positive communication—even if it is nonverbal. Jeff Lazarus has given us a roadmap to living a happier and more productive life with this invaluable book. His tongue-in-cheek style will leave you laughing, but ultimately make you realize that your canine companion seriously has much to teach you about how to become a better listener!" —Dr. Marty Becker, 'America's veterinarian' and New York Times bestselling author --This text refers to the paperback edition.

If you have a desire to nurture and strengthen relationships in all aspects of your life, I highly recommend this clever, entertaining and enlightening book. Jeff Lazarus manages to take a very serious subject (LISTENING) and makes it fun to learn new techniques and concepts by using man and
woman's best friend, DOG, as the model of how to do it effectively.
My biz partner and I teach modules on listening in our leadership trainings and I am excited to use some of the powerful metaphors to help our clients better grasp the power of fully giving one's attention. Since we each desire to simply be heard, listening like a dog will naturally fulfill many needs without extreme effort or time.
Since life provides a continual source of learning and growing, I highly recommend this book as a primer when it comes to learning the importance of listening to create better connections that include trust, sincerity, understanding and unconditional love. If dogs can do it, we can do it. :-)
The statement that "Dogs are the one relationship in our lives that refuses to be digitized in any way" hit home. The fact that you can't digitize your relationship with your dog means you have to spend time with him...in person. You interact with him...in person. You share the moment with him...in person. There is no distance between you (physical or emotional), no screen to block you and definitely no other way to communicate except through your five senses.
This is just one gem to be discovered in this wonderful book. It's also guaranteed to make you look at your dog in a new light!
