On Friday, March 4th at 6:30 pm, local author and renowned dog trainer Kevin Behan will be in store to discuss and sign copies of his new book, Your Dog Is Your Mirror:The Emotional Capacity of Our Dogs and Ourselves.
“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.
“I can’t recommend this book enough, as it challenges the reader to open their mind and shift how they view their dog and themselves. It challenges current paradigms and can at times evoke very emotional responses. Whether you believe you know all there is to know about dogs already, or you just got your first dog and want to know more about them, it really doesn’t matter… you’ll get exactly what you need from it.”
“Behan has a flair for illustrations and a keen wit, both of which make this a most enjoyable read. ‘Your Dog is Your Mirror’ is more than a book, it is a well-written and thought-provoking journey, not just through the author’s life with dogs, but through the vast reaches and inner workings of the universe. Put this on the top of your ‘To Read’ list.”
“Highly recommended to anyone that feels there is more than meets the eye when it comes to the relationship we have with our dogs.”
