about this item
While people may not (yet) be able to converse with their canine companions, Alexandra Horowitz provides us with a ****** glimpse at some of what they might be thinking. Horowitz, a cognitive scientist, takes a look at the world from a dog's eye (or nose) view, revealing the myriad differences between canine perceptions and our own. While people tend to rely on sight to navigate the external world, dogs primarily use smell, although their senses of vision and hearing are usually stronger than our own. Horowitz investigates dogs' strange ability to sense changes in the weather or the imminent approach of death and analyzes up-to-the-minute scientific data which indicates that dogs can not only smell objects, but emotions.
Alexandra Horowitz offers readers a fresh look at the world of dogs--from the dog's point of view.
