Dog owners must-reads: “Your dog is your mirror”
Have you ever noticed the resemblance between a dog and his owner? In this must-read you will not only understand your dogs behaviour, but also your own. “Your dog is your mirror: the emotional capacity of our dogs and ourselves” was written by dog trainer Kevin Behan. In his book he proposes a new model of understanding your dog.
He claims: “A dog's behaviour and emotion, indeed its very cognition, are driven by our emotion. The dog doesn’t respond to what the owner thinks, says, or does; it responds to what the owner feels. And in this way, dogs can actually put people back in touch with their own emotions.” With this theory he makes way for a whole new understanding of the relationship between human and dog. Its connection is way more profound then ever believed, it comes from the heart. This approach to dog cognition helps to understand many of dogs most inscrutable behaviours.
Reading this book will give you a whole new understanding of your dog as well as of yourself. An absolute must-read.
