Publisher's Summary

No matter how cushy their lives, dogs live on our terms. They compromise their freedom and instinctual pleasure, as well as their innate strategies for coping with stress and anxiety, in exchange for the love, comfort, and care they get from us.   

But it is possible to let dogs be dogs without wreaking havoc on our lives, as biologist Marc Bekoff and bioethicist Jessica Pierce show in this fascinating book. They begin by illuminating the true nature of dogs and helping us "walk in their paws". They reveal what smell, taste, touch, sight, and hearing mean to dogs and then guide listeners through everyday ways of enhancing dogs' freedom in safe, mutually happy ways. The rewards, they show, are great for dog and human alike.
