“Just finished reading Your Dog is Your Mirror, which I had picked up to find out why my pit bull barked at and was occasionally biting certain people. What a powerful experience! Within the first few chapters, I suspected that the problem was in my lack of social skills, not his. And as if by magic, just by my knowing this, River was noticeably more friendly. I was in tears by the end of the book. Now I’m relieved to understand my dog and a little nervous about what River will teach me next. Thank you for this work; Now I’m going to read Natural Dog Training. I’m a not just a fan, but a benefactor.”

“Your Dog Is Your Mirror is a very thought-provoking book that will force you to reconsider who we are and who dogs are and why we are so attracted to one another. Kevin Behan calls upon his extensive experience with our best friends and makes the important point that in the emotional interactions between dogs and humans, it’s not the human reading the human in the animal but the animal reading the animal in the human. Whether you agree with Kevin’s provocative theories or not, the age-old adage that no one knows you like your dog clearly rings true. I learned a lot from this wide-ranging and unique book.”
— Marc Bekoff, University of Colorado, author of The Emotional Lives of Animals and The Animal Manifesto
“Part autobiography of a remarkable and singular career, part ode to the wild heart of the dog and its power to reconnect us with nature, this beautifully written book proposes an entirely new way of looking at our relationship with our dogs. While the author has spent a lifetime in the dog training business, this is not a training manual. Behan has set out with this work to detail the nature of animal consciousness as an emotional network, of which humans and canines form a unique interspecies partnership. Behan relates with humor and deep self-reflection how his upbringing observing and training thousands of dogs led him to questions not adequately answered by prevailing wisdom, and eventually inspired him to part ways with his father, early celebrity dog trainer John Behan, in order to dig deeper toward developing a totally unique model of understanding the canine mind. Today Kevin Behan is one of the most revolutionary minds in the business, and a pioneer in dog-owner rehabilitation.”
