Dog is Love: Why and How Your Dog Loves You (English Edition) Formato Kindle
'Utterly compelling' Telegraph
'Science finally reveals the dog's secret: the unique capacity for love that separates them from all other animals. Superb' - John Bradshaw, bestselling author of In Defence of Dogs and Cat Sense
'If you want to build an even stronger bond with your own dog, this book is a must read' - Victoria Stilwell, author of The Secret Language of Dogs
What makes dogs truly special? Why does our relationship with them feel so much more deep and intense than with other animals?
Any dog owner knows that the bond with their dog is unique. The unparalleled loyalty and total devotion of a dog seems the stuff of true love - but is this a whimsical construction that bears little relation to reality?
Through ground-breaking scientific experiments and eye-opening historical evidence, canine behavioural psychologist Dr Clive Wynne unlocks the secret to our unique bond with dogs: their capacity to love, an unprecedented attribute in the animal kingdom.
In Dog is Love, Dr Wynne debunks the myth that dogs possess a unique form of intelligence. Instead, he shows that dogs are able to show sympathy and can respond to human emotions in a way that is truly remarkable. One particularly moving study shows that dogs' and their owners' hearts beat in synchrony, just as the hearts of a loving human couple do.
Looking at the evolution of dogs, Dr Wynne points out that it was the wolves' ability to form relationships with mankind, becoming indispensable hunting companions, that enabled the depth of love and affection between dogs and humans that we know today. Dr Wynne shares his experiences of hunting with the Mayangna tribe in Nicaragua and the vital role played by their hunting dogs to shed light on what the early human-dog relationship might have looked like, and explains the science behind what really goes on when a young pup grows up in a human family.
This is a delightful, heart-warming and fascinating analysis of the unique bond between humans and dogs, perfect for anyone who shares their home with their dog and wonders just how much they love you. It will change the way you interact with dogs and help you get the best out of them in a way that will be truly life-changing.
An utterly compelling crossbreed of a book. Part love story, part detective story, it takes the reader on a journey round the globe and deep within canine DNA in order to discern the science behind these feelings of soppiness and to solve the ultimate mystery - why are dogs man's best friend?, Telegraph
If you want to build an even stronger bond with your own dog, this book is a must read., Victoria Stilwell, author of The Secret Language of Dogs
Dog Is Love is a riveting first-person account of how a behavioural scientist who was initially sceptical about animal emotions came to ask - and answer - the question, "What is it about dogs that makes them special?" Based on his own research as well as the latest findings in neuroscience, ethology, genetics, and animal welfare, Clive Wynne concludes that the bond between dogs and humans is based on their deep devotion to us. Part memoir, part scientific detective story, and part call to action, this book will change the way you look at dogs., Hal Herzog, author of Some We Love, Some We Hate, Some We Eat: Why It's So Hard To Think Straight About Animals
Dog Is Love is a lively and fascinating mash-up of science, memoir and anecdotes that reveals a simple and yet enormously profound insight: dogs are unique because they love us. That conclusion sounds obvious. It's not. Canine behaviourist Clive Wynne takes the reader on a vast, yet accessible journey through the genetics, the evolutionary theories, the science-and the mystery-of why and how this happened. Wynne doesn't shy away from challenging popular theories about dog behaviour and evolution, from detailing the brutal realities of dogs languishing in shelters across the United States, or from critiquing the ways in which we mythologize dogs and do them a disservice. But the reader comes away from Dog Is Love better informed, oddly cheered-and with a new and deeper appreciation for our amazing canine companions and their enormous capacity for love., Cat Warren, author of the NYT bestseller, What the Dog Knows
Fascinating ... this delightful analysis of canine devotion will change the way you see your canine companion forever., Countryside Magazine
Fascinating ... a heart-warming book for any dog lover., Countryside Magazine
This book may make you think differently about your four-legged friend. To be able to treat dogs the way they deserve to be treated, you first need to understand their nature, because, as Clive explains, "If anyone loves you, your dog loves you.", Dogs Monthly --Questo testo si riferisce alla hardcover edizione.

Le recensioni migliori da altri paesi
Well, lucky readers, because this is a very accessible book that pools some of the best and most significant research and dips a toe into the hitherto largely taboo waters of animal emotions.
While much research was familiar to me, although probably not to the general reader, the conclusions drawn were another matter.
There is no scientific definition of "love". Wikipedia suggests "Love encompasses a range of strong and positive emotional and mental states, from the most sublime virtue or good habit, the deepest interpersonal affection, to the simplest pleasure."
It is the deepest interspecies affection between dogs and humans that, when one comes to think of it, is truly astonishing and perhaps unique.
Best of all are the conclusions. We often take dogs' affection for granted - all that unconditional love that is so frequently expressed by owners. Dr Wynne shows that we often fail to reciprocate (or, something not mentioned, reciprocate by killing with "kindness", over feeding dogs because that is the only emotional connection that some people manage). He also points out that the majority of the world's dogs live perfectly good quality lives with minimal interference form man and some of the dog most professed to be looked after by people suffer as a consequence from in-breeding and restrictions on every aspect the daily physical and emotional lives.
One caveat; I couldn't find a credit for the illustrator. The illustrations are charming, but in the case of the facial expressions of the GSD, too fuzzy and dark to be informative.
Food for thought and a must read for the potential and actual dog owner.
Great research, great writer, great book!
It confirmed what I’ve always felt: dogs are very smart and very emotional 🐶😍
