Product description

Review

"Imagine having dogs stand up and tell you how to give them their best lives. While they can't (or, at least, it can be tricky to translate what they're saying), Marc Bekoff and Jessica Pierce can. This book beautifully uses the science of dogs to help dog people bring compassion to our lives with them."
-- Alexandra Horowitz, head of the Dog Cognition Lab at Barnard College and author of Inside of a Dog: What Dogs See, Smell, and Know and Being a Dog: Following the Dog Into a World of Smell

"This is not just another dog book. It's a dog manifesto! Written by two supremely gifted experts, Unleashing Your Dog reveals not only what your dog wants but why. You owe it to your dog to read this book!"
-- Sy Montgomery, author of The Soul of an Octopus and How to Be a Good Creature

"As always, Marc Bekoff and Jessica Pierce champion the dog's point of view. Unleashing Your Dog is a scholarly book that is also a delightful must-read for dogs' human companions. It will enrich their dog savvy and improve their dogs' quality of life by giving them the opportunity to experience life through their dogs' eyes -- well, actually, their noses and ears. I loved this book."
-- Dr. Ian Dunbar, author of Before and After Getting Your Puppy

"A must-read for all dog owners. We could all do with understanding our canine companions a bit better."
-- Modern Dog

"This insightful and thought-provoking book offers information about the inner lives of our dogs that educates while being immensely readable. Marc Bekoff and Jessica Pierce debunk myths (such as that dogs don't experience jealousy -- yes, they do), and explain why off-leash time and opportunities to use their extraordinary senses are so vital to the well-being of our canine friends who are, essentially, living in captivity. This book is a must-read for everyone who wishes to understand dogs and build harmonious relationships with the dogs in their lives."
-- Lisa Tenzin-Dolma, author and principal of the International School for Canine Psychology & Behaviour

"In this remarkably informative, inspirational book, ethologist Marc Bekoff and ethicist Jessica Pierce explore ways we can improve the lives of the dogs we claim to love but too often hold in virtual captivity. Everyone who shares their life with a dog or is thinking of doing so will benefit from this book, as will the dogs. In unleashing their dog, readers might find that they have liberated themselves to once again take joy in small pleasures, like a dog running freely."
-- Mark Derr, author of Dog's Best Friend, A Dog's History of America, and How the Dog Became the Dog

"In our modern times it is so easy to forget that, despite all our efforts, our best friends have remained dogs! Marc Bekoff and Jessica Pierce provide a powerful eye-opener on this fact for all dog owners."
-- Dr. Ádám Miklósi, head of ethology at Eötvös Loránd University and director of the Family Dog Project

"Marc Bekoff and Jessica Pierce -- both superbly savvy, super dog-knowledgeable and dog-friendly PhDs -- make a great team when it comes to helping us understand and provide properly for our dogs. In this glorious book, they urge us to consider dog ownership from the dogs' point of view, to 'walk in their paws, ' so to speak. This book will ultimately ensure that your dog has a home for life and you have a much-loved and properly understood canine companion. Two paws up for this great work! Designed to inform and educate in an entertaining and easy-to-read format, it will help dogs and dog owners everywhere live richer lives."
-- Dr. Nicholas H. Dodman, professor emeritus at Tufts University and author of The Dog Who Loved Too Much and The Well-Adjusted Dog

"Unleashing Your Dog is the go-to book for enriching the lives of dogs. With practical suggestions based on cutting-edge scientific research, Marc Bekoff and Jessica Pierce show how dogs can exercise their senses and bodies to enjoy life to its fullest in a human-dominated world. This easy-to-read guide will enlighten and entertain dog lovers everywhere."
-- Dr. Marty Becker, DVM, author of Your Dog: The Owner's Manual
