The Hidden Life of Dogs
by Elizabeth Marshall Thomas




Overview -

"A fascinating glimpse into the canine world, possibly deeper and more accurate than any we have had until now" (The New York Times Book Review).

Long before the Dog Whisperer, anthropologist Elizabeth Marshall Thomas revealed to readers the nature of pack dynamics, leading to a completely new understanding of dogs, their personalities, and their desires.

Based on thirty years of living with and observing dogs, The Hidden Life of Dogs asks one question: What do dogs want? To find out, we must meet the pack. First there is Misha, a husky Thomas followed on her daily rounds of more than 130 square miles. Then there is Maria, who adored Misha, bore his puppies, and clearly mourned when he moved away; the brave pug Bingo and his little wife, Violet; the dingo Viva; and other colorful characters.

In observing them, Thomas learned that what dogs want most of all is other dogs. Informative and captivating, The Hidden Life of Dogs will give every canine owner and canine lover great insight into dog behavior.

"A wonderful book . . . Too bad dogs can't read. They'd be fascinated. Dog people will be too." —USA Today
