John Bradshaw “Dogs: understanding your very best friend”

Dr Bradshaw is an anthrozoologist who studies pets, dogs and cats in particular. In this book, he explains how dogs experience our world through their thoughts and even through their dreams. The main character is a terrier named Rusty, through whom the author attempts to explain the everyday life of a dog. We discover many interesting facts about dogs. For example, the extent of their amazing sense of smell, how important daily walks are in their lives and how essential it is for them to get the love and security they need, and that from a very early age. In that sense, this book also talks about Rusty’s family and the efforts they went through in adopting him from a dog shelter and in attempting to create a safe environment for him to live in.

This lovely and illustrated book gives kids and adults alike an eye opening view into the mind of a dog. It also has a practical use for all pet owners, since it shares tips that can be used in everyday interactions in order to become even closer with their furry friends.

I recommend Dr Bradshaw’s book to all who love animals.
