Inside of a Dog explains these things and much more. The answers can be surprising—once we set aside our natural inclination to anthropomorphize dogs.
Although not a formal training guide, Inside of a Dog has practical application for dog lovers interested in understanding why their dogs do what they do. With a light touch and the weight of science behind her, Alexandra Horowitz examines the animal we think we know best but may actually understand the least. This book is as close as you can get to knowing about dogs without being a dog yourself.
She lives with her family and two large, highly sniffy dogs in New York City. Would you like to tell us about a lower price?

I read Alexandra Horowitz’ “Inside of a Dog” and wanted to share the incredible information with my teenage grandson who’s a true dog lover. This edition includes everything the original version does in a way that a younger reader can understand.
Although it’a a bit below the reading level of a teenager, the subject matter is technical enough that the simplified language isn’t presented in a condescending way, so it worked well to give him a solid foundation in canine behavior, and insight into the canine mind. If you give kids something they’re interested in, and present it in a way they can easily digest, they will read, and seek out further knowledge.
Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. For Fido’s sake, read this awesome, amazing, riveting book! I have had dogs for decades and thought alas that I knew everything about dogs. As in Really Wrong. And pretty arrogant to boot! Inside of a Dog has radically changed my understanding, approach, behavior, and communication with my Lab.
Alexandra’s writing is easy, captivating, endearing, and stunningly informative.
After reading it, I was frankly grieved by what I didn’t alexnadra. And for all my other Labs that I’d ‘short sheeted’ through my ignorance. I cannot recommend this book highly enough.
Although Fido will love you forever, if you read this book, you’ll know what that means from HER perspective.
Good information in this book, but I would say this isn’t for a child under 12 unless they are an exceptional reader. The type is small and it’s basically a chapter book, so difficult for a younger child who is an average reader to keep their attention and get through. I’m rounding up a bit. I started reading this book as research for a novel for which I needed to know more about the abilities, senses, and internal experiences of dogs, and I found it extremely useful for that purpose. It was also just plain interesting — very much so.
I only wish I could remember more of what I read. I let more than alexandrx month go by between reading the first and second halves, so I already know I’ve forgotten quite a bit. The book can be a bit repetitive at times, but that is my only criticism. This is a very interesting book. For the pfrro time as a dog owner I had the chance to have a scientist present a scientific view of “the dog”.
The constant faithful companion who horkwitz essentially family This book is factual, interesting, well presented as a scientific work, yet not overwhelmingly so and often times reads much quicker pero you would expect a technical text to read. This book does a good job of presenting current knowledge of the scientific understanding of dogs, with comparisons to other mammals, and perspective on what is and what is not well understood. Msnte is, as other reviewers have pointed out, not a training manual, rather it is a good example of science writing for an inquisitive and educated non-scientist.
It alexandraa a wide range of subject matter, and does a fairly good job of giving life to the material through example and personal history.

And importantly, the book is well referenced and replete with an extensive list of further sources. Like any good scientific report, it makes no claim to being the last word or infallible, but rather the starting point for as much delving into what makes dogs tick as the most curious of us could want. This book was recommended to me by an ardent reader and dog owner. It is thorough exploration of a dog’s life and our lives with them.
It gets a bit repetitive. Information is informed by research and the writer’s anecdotal experiences with her dog, Pump. Which also serves to lighten the mood and avoid being ponderous. It explains why we find living with a dog so pleasing. It is definitely for the dog lover who wants confirmation about the joys of having a dog and the desire to better understand why they do what they do. One person found this helpful.
