Description:

In Understanding Dogs, Clinton R. Sanders explores the day-to-day experience of living and working with canine companions. Based on a decade of research in obedience classes, veterinary offices, and guide dog training schools, Sanders examines how dog owners come to understand their animals as thinking, emotional individuals--and explains how dogs serve as social facilitators as well as adornments to personal identity. Sanders shows dog owners how--while we try to teach and shape our dogs' behavior--they often teach us how to more thoughtfully enjoy physical warmth, a nourishing meal, a walk in the woods, or the simple joys of the immediate moment.
