What do dogs know? How do they think? The answers will surprise and delight you as Horowitz explains how dogs perceive their daily worlds each other and that other quirky animal the human. This is a fresh look at the world of dogs from the dog's point of view. As a dog owner Horowitz is curious to learn what her dog thinks about. As a cognitive scientist she's intent on understanding the minds of animals who cannot speak for themselves. (Bestseller)

What a gig - studying dogs all day, at the Barnard College Canine Cognition Center. Horowitz gives a thorough and very - um, human examination of the ways that dogs comprehend the world, and especially, how they interact with us. Dogs even are a tool-using species, she shows, and the tools are us!

In its absorbing and entertaining examination of the unique human-canine bond, Alexandra Horowitz's Inside of a Dog charmingly balances the scholarly and scientific with the personal and whimsical. This is one of my favourite explorations of how dogs and people can so effectively, happily and affectionately co-exist.

A delightful new view of human-dog interaction. Yes, anthropomorphism is not bad. And, I always loved those kisses without giving any food.

I was profoundly disappointed with this book, I was hoping for a touchy feely, I love my dog, easy summer read but instead I found the author highly impersonal and the book too scientific and technical; might be up someones alley but not mine

This was a very good book. It reminds us that dogs are not wolves nor are they human, but they have been domesticated by us. The world is very different from a dogs-eye view.
