Do dogs dream? Can they recognize themselves in the mirror or understand what they’re seeing on television? Are they more intelligent than cats? People have a great curiosity—and many misunderstandings—about how dogs think, act, and perceive the world. They also wonder about the social and emotional lives of dogs. Stanley Coren brings decades of scientific research on dogs to bear in his unprecedented foray into the inner lives of our canine companions, dispelling many common myths in the process. In a conversational Q&A format with illustrations, Coren answers approximately 75 questions often asked of him during his nearly fifty-year career as a dog researcher, combining the authority of an expert with the engaging delivery of a guest at a cocktail party.
Stanley Coren is a professor emeritus of psychology at the University of British Columbia. He is the author of The Intelligence of Dogs and other bestsellers about dogs. He, his wife, and their two dogs live in Vancouver, British Columbia.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A sourcebook for tremendous insight into the canine mind. Dogs love us, but do we understand how they think? How can we learn to better recognize their behavioural patterns? This book contains dozens of little chapters that provide anecdotal and researched evidence exploring a multitude of issues associated with the canine mind. Do dogs see in colour? Yes, but not quite like us. Do they possess the ability to add, subtract, or detect cancer? Yes, absolutely -- but within limits. The intelligence of the dog is explained in simple terms that help us dissect clues which dogs send us at all times of the day. Some of Coren's explanations are physiologically based, while other dog traits can be enhanced through improved training and recognition of the many facets found in the world of our best friend on four legs.
