Preface

As an unabashed dog lover, Alexandra Horowitz is naturally curious about what her dog thinks and what she knows. As a cognitive scientist she is intent on understanding the minds of animals who cannot say what they know or feel.

This is a fresh look at the world of dogs — from the dog’s point of view. The book introduces the reader to the science of the dog — their perceptual and cognitive abilities — and uses that introduction to draw a picture of what it might be like to bea dog. It answers questions no other dog book can — such as: What is a dog’s sense of time? Does she miss me? Want friends? Know when she’s been bad? Horowitz’s journey, and the insights she uncovered from studying her own dog, Pumpernickel, allowed her to understand her dog better, and appreciate her more through that understanding. The reader will be able to do the same with their own dog.

Inside of a Dogwill allow dog owners to look at their pets’ behaviour in a different, and revealing light, enabling them to understand their dogs and enjoy their relationship even more.
