Letting in the dog

Opening hearts and minds to a deeper understanding

Deals with the fascinating subject of reading canine body language and more, finding the intersection between academic and spiritual - the juncture between hearts and minds. The book explores the intuitive and intellectual sides of communicating with canines, in which space, we build trust and better relationships.


Communicating with and understanding dogs builds trusting relationships, relieves frustration, and improves lives at both ends of the leash. Apart from simply reading canine body language, this book explores the juncture between hearts and minds, where true understanding begins.
Taking a light-hearted yet earnest approach to exploring how to connect with dogs, each chapter features amusing, thought-provoking anecdotes and much useful information, showing us how, by connecting with our dogs, we learn how to connect with ourselves.
Finding the intersection between the academic and the spiritual for better communication with dogs leads to effective two-way conversation: how to talk with our dogs instead of talking at them.
The intuitive side of communicating with canines in conjunction with the intellectual side is also investigated: in this space, we build trust, respect, and better relationships, and human and canine lives are enriched.
