Also a "Should Read" for anyone who has had a dog or loves dogs! This is by far the BEST book about dog friends and companions that I have found--ever. Not only is the writing conversational and the examples clear, they cover every possible situation a dog owner might encounter w/excellent suggestions on how to remedy the problem. The performance was equally outstanding, as Ellen Archer came across so convincingly, I had to check to see that it was not the author herself reading the story. In every aspect, this book was a real winner in my estimation. Instructive, educational and thoroughly entertaining as well. So much so, that I am contemplating buying the hard copy as a reference source. I no longer have a dog, but am planning on eventually getting another when our days of long distance travel have been satisfied.

great information in a relatable manner by comparing hope humans expect a dog to do vs. what they're capable of

what an amazing book. when it started i wondered why we were predominantly talking about primates but this became very apparent and was a new and very interesting way to look at animal behaviour. what started as a book I was not sure I was going to enjoy, ended as a book I adore and will be strongly hinting at as a present for Christmas (in paperback form).
I was looking for insight on how and why dogs think, behave and what they do. this book definitely makes you think about things as well as making you realise what effect your own actions have.
I even went and bought the actual book to make it easier to refer to particular parts later on.
Wow! Patricia McConnell is a wealth of knowledge and a thoroughly entertaining author. I wish I had found her books sooner. The Audible version was excellent! Ellen Archer narrated the book perfectly!
I enjoyed this book so much I will also purchase the hard copy as I am sure it is a book I will want to refer to repeatedly. It was so good I didn't want it to end...
