"Inside of a Dog is a most
welcomed authoritative, personal, and witty book about what it is like
to be a dog. Alexandra Horowitz has spent a lot of time studying our
best friends and shares her knowledge in a readable volume that also
serves as a corrective to the many myths that circulate about just who
our canine companions are. I hope this book enjoys the wide readership
-Marc Bekoff, author of "The Emotional Lives of Animals" and "Wild Justice: The Moral Lives of Animals" (with Jessica Pierce)
"Discover why your dog is so
sensitive to your emotions, gaze, and body language. Dogs live in a
world of ever changing intricate detail of smell. Read this captivating
book and enter the sensory world of your dog."
-Temple Grandin, author of "Animals in Translation" and "Animals Make us Human"
In Inside of a Dog, Dr. Horowitz evokes the dog's perspective by
interweaving the science of dog cognition and perception with personal
reflections on her own dog's behavior. This book gives anyone who lives
with, deals with, or admires dogs a new understanding of their sensory
abilities, a nuanced interpretation of their behavior, and an
appreciation of their minds.
Dr. Horowitz teaches psychology at Barnard College, Columbia
University. She earned her PhD in Cognitive Science at the University
of California at San Diego, and has studied the cognition of humans,
rhinoceros, bonobos, and dogs. She lives in New York City with her
husband, young son, and Finnegan, "a dog of indeterminate parentage and
