For readers of Inside of a Dog by Alexandra Horowitz , this New York Times bestseller offers mesmerizing insights into the interior lives of our smartest pets

In the past decade, we have learned more about how dogs think than in the last century. Breakthroughs in cognitive science, pioneered by Brian Hare, have proven dogs have a kind of genius for getting along with people that is unique in the animal kingdom. This dog genius revolution is transforming how we live and work with our canine friends, including how we train them. Does your dog feel guilt? Is she pretending she can't hear you? Does she want affection--or just your sandwich? In Th#65533;e Genius of Dogs, Brian Hare and Vanessa Woods lay out what discoveries at the Duke Canine Cognition Lab and other research facilities around the world are revealing about how your dog thinks and how we humans can have even deeper relationships with our best four-legged friends.

There is some really interesting stuff here, from a researcher who works with pet dogs, among other species, and who also has some experience with wild and feral dogs. I found myself a little frustrated with his criticism of clicker training without a lot of detail, and especially without an alternative approach that would work better for those behaviours that are easily shaped by clicker training. So, some parts that I would have liked a lot more detail about were a bit sparse and unsatisfying. But it's still an interesting book.
