Product Description

Review

"Tremendously reassuring for me, because my dog and I love each other to distraction...Masson dares to write about dogs' emotions, dreams, sadness, fears and loves, and attempts to interpret their feelings without sounding even slightly soppy...This is a fascinating and very moving book" (Mail on Sunday)

"Charming...personal and dynamic" (Independent)

"Gentle, funny and entertaining" (Observer)

"Brilliant" (Guardian)

"A joyous read... Hats of to Jeffrey Masson for his excellent, down-to-earth, understandable and, more importantly, loving study of man's best friend" (Literary Review)

Book Description

A charming, playful and moving book which will forever change the way you think about dogs.

Format: Paperback
This is a truly moving account of the emotional world of dogs.Masson has an inate understanding of what's going on inside the dog's mind. Some of the accounts brought me to tears, especially the dog who brought food to another dog stuck down a mine shaft.From his writings on Freud though, I know that Masson has a tendency to make assumptions, and misunderstand the situation, so I was cautious reading this book. Sure enough, his observations came from his own small group of four dogs,[a very limited sample compared to those who have worked with and trained hundreds of dogs].Still worth reading though, and I think overall he does kind of get what is going on.

Format: Paperback
This is a fantastic book written in a friendly manner as though the author is engaged in conversation with the reader. Jeffrey Masson adopts three dogs to give himself "a pack" and then examines the emotional behaviour of these animals in particular, and researches and recounts tales of others. This is a fascinating and heart-warming book written by a man with a real sympathy with dogs and a true love of the canine species. A good read leaving the reader with plenty of food-for-thought.

For dog-owners, this book tells you what you already knew. Namely, how very special our canine companions are. There are stories which will upset readers but, nevertheless, the message to the book has to be one of joy. Dogs are wonderful creatures and we could perhaps learn a little from their faithful nature.

This was the first book I read when I was trying to understand if my love of dogs was something that other people felt too. Here I discovered that I am not alone and that my hunches about the special qualities that dogs undoubtedly have are appreciated by many others. And here is the evidence (which I didn't really need) to show us why dogs are so loveable. Nobody who loves dogs could fail to love this book, too!

I bought this book as a Christmas gift for a friend so have not totally read it. I did however have a look through and read some parts of it to get a feel for the book to make sure I had made the right choice to give my friend.

It seemed to be a book full of great, useful and amazing information into the dog's mind and how they need to be treated to live in harmony with us humans.

When you have a dog, or any pet for that matter, all knowledge is useful and never wasted. We can never learn too much about these beautiful faithful animals.

I agree with the reviews. Having lived with three dogs between 1981 and 2009 I agree completely that having a dog can enrich and ennoble us. My dogs were - Judy -adopted as a puppy she was balanced calm and very loving. The next two (all the three dogs overlapped) were rescued and male and both loving but crazy. Sam couldn't be alone he had had three homes before mine possibly more and was a biter, all sorts of therapy made no difference- oh for the Dog Whisperer - Jack had not been fed for an extended period and had been physically hurt, he never totally got over it. However all these dogs were loved and very wanted. There are no bad dogs, but previous experiences are as hard for dogs to overcome as for neglected and abused children. Sorry this got so personal.

Great book full of 'true isms' about your own dog.. If you own a dog, you will be able to identify with loads of the descriptions of the behaviour of pet dogs. I really enjoyed the read, and made me love my dogs all the more !

This was an OK book. Nothing startling and not as good as J M's other books but a good read nevertheless and very informative about canine behaviour in an anecdotal manner - which is nice to read. One thing it does do is to document how much owners adore their animals and will do a lot for animal welfare if the right people read it. Sadly, those who like to be cruel to animals are unlikely to pick it up.
