Dogs Unleashed : Adventures With Our Best Friends (Hardcover) (Orvis)
about this item
Dogs Unleashed portrays the spirit, sense of wonder, and adventure that tethers humans to their most trusted animal companions. With beautiful images from the Orvis Company’s archives and an inspired extended essay by bestselling dog author Ken Foster, this book conveys that there is no journey that can be taken alone that is as satisfying as the same path in the company of a dog.This is because, Foster points out, even the most adventurous of us are unlikely to explore the world as thoroughly as a dog. So often, they lure us away from where we think we should be headed. No, they seem to be saying as they head just slightly off the path at first. This way, they want us to know, will be better. And it is. As dog “owners,” we spend much of our time learning how we might teach our dogs. But imagine the possibilities if we were to think at least as often of the ways we can learn from them. Dogs can, if we let them, connect us back to the natural world around us, and to our own intuitive nature to observe and explore and wonder.With a foreword by Orvis vice chairman Dave Perkins and his wife Nancy Mackinnon,Dogs Unleashed is an inspiration to all those who value time spent outdoors with their best canine companions.
