I was given this book as a Christmas present last year. It's a non-serious, tongue in cheek book written from the perspective of the family dog. This in no way is meant to be a serious insight into a dogs mind, nor a training tool. It will cause dog owners a chuckle as they recognise errant patterns of behaviour in their own dog - and the seemingly cunning reasons behind the pooch's actions.

This `instruction manual' for dogs certainly hits the mark by describing to any self-respecting, independent-thinking dog (and lets face it, given half a chance they all are!) how to behave in order to fully ensure their human owners know their place in the pack. A nice book that any dog owner will be nodding their head in agreement to, as they are bound to recognise the same tricks that their own dog gets up to.

Made me wonder what Barney in the hilariously funny book Shakespeare My Butt! would have wrote about John Donoghue (the author) had Barney (John's dog) wrote a list of `Ten Commandments of Dog Owners' to keep John in line, instead of John writing `Ten Commandments of Dog' to keep Barney in line! And what Ollie in Stephen Foster's book Walking Ollie would have to say about him!

A good book if you're looking for something to make you giggle.

This little book (and it is little in size, but not in content)certainly made me laugh at some of the "statements" in it.
I found myself realising that most of the things mentioned in this book, my present and past dogs have done.
Yes, my German Shepherd is one of those dogs who will wait until she is in the car and then shake all the sand off her once she has had a good run along the shore (beach).
Yes, she is also one of the many dogs who will let you know that she has working tastebuds and would like to have a taste of what is on your plate just by giving you a "look". I bet you will know that "look" if you are a dog owner.
I am sure this book was written by a dog rather than a human, but it will certainly make you realise that dogs are not the dumb animals that they are sometimes made out to be. After reading this book you will realise that they certainly have us humans well and truly sussed out.

I received this as a gift as I am dog mad.
Read it quickly as I found the book very funny and entertaining and as a dog owner I could relate to a lot if incidences in the book.
Great little gift for dog lovers everywhere.

This book was much smaller than I realised when I ordered it but, as it was for a small gift, it didn't matter too much. My friend had recently bought a labradoddle puppy and this book was a perfect little gift.

Its good, and yes it is funny. However much smaller than I expected. For the price I paid for it excellent value, not really worth its full price

This book is really sweet and funny. I bought this for a dog lover and he loved the book. Its very entertaining. I think its great value, I seen it in the local garden centre, then purchased it on Amazon, saving a few pounds.

Dog Lovers will find this book is probably written with their dog in mind.
Funny in places, but obvious to those who own nuts who behave in this way.
A good quick read on a lazy day.
