Author Les Krantz provides the reader with an important understanding-and appreciation-of the things your dog does every day and why canines and humans are so well connected. This emotional connection is not only real; it can be expanded if you recognize what your best friend may be thinking and what he or she may do next. Never before has so much been offered about the physical and emotional power of dogs and how you can best bring it out of them. Understanding the hidden power of your dog will allow every dog owner to tap into their remarkable ability to understand you, heal you, and often save your life when your pet knows you may be in peril, when it may not even be apparent to you, or even your doctor or the police.
Bestselling author Les Krantz explains why you can rely on your dog. Research has proven dogs can do some things better than humans, even when humans are aided by the latest technology or a team of experts. This book is about the myriad things that man just cannot beat dogs at, from telepathic and physical feats to the metaphysical and emotional.
Today, with decades of research, these canine powers are not nearly as mysterious as they once were. Scientists of all stripes-animal behaviorists, veterinary researchers, zoologists, medical doctors, and trained psychologists-have been unlocking some of the mysteries of how dogs do the amazing things they do. This is the subject of "Power of the Dog," which cites their research in an entertaining and informative text that's chockfull of true stories. The useful information will bring you closer to your best friend, who's looking out for your welfare, often unbeknown to you. Recognize how to spot it; it might even save your life.
Its focus is on things at which dog beats man, from saving lives in peril, to predicting the future, to improving the life, health, and wellbeing of the canine's "next of kin," us, the species of man.
Thousands of years ago, we took wolves out of the wild, fed them, pampered them, cared for them, and above all loved them and got their love in return. That wasn't a bad deal for either of us, was it? This book is about both sides of the deal, and it will help you understand dogs and maybe even shed some light on why they understand us and love us, too.
