Dogs Are People Too: The Practical Guide to Understanding and Training Your Dog (because you're more alike than you think!) (Paperback)
Dogs Are People Too- The Practical Guide to Understanding and Training Your Dog (because you're more alike than you think ) is a comprehensive guide for novice to experienced owners on how to best understand and interact with their dogs for utmost success.
Finding a dog training book that is entertaining, yet not lightweight, is like finding the proverbial needle in a haystack. With Dogs Are People Too, Mary Jean Alsina presents an extremely unique, science-based perspective about dogs and their owners. The tone of the book is conversational, charming, and thought-provoking with its unique perspective about the similarities between dogs and humans.- John Visconti
Alsina neatly draws on a variety of sources to outline how dog guardians can learn to better communicate with their dogs, read their emotions and understand what they are trying to say.- Susan Nilson
I highly recommend that dog owners read Dogs Are People Too as it delivers an excellent overview of important concepts they need to be aware of. Dogs Are People Too acts as a comprehensive guide to canine guardianship, giving owners the information they need to enhance their bond with their dogs, and is a valuable foundation of dog owner education.- Angelica Steinker
I'd always suspected that my dogs were the better versions of me and now this book proves it. This is the bridge that helps you to relate to your dog as you would to your child, your friend, your partner. It applies what you know already to the language of dogs and you will find yourself nodding absently and consistently in agreement as you flip the pages. Don't think of this as a dog training manual. Rather, it is a guide for understanding dogs.- Zarina Mak
