This January, New World Library will be releasing Kevin’s second book, “Your Dog Is Your Mirror: The Emotional Capacity of Our Dogs and Ourselves”. It is currently available for pre-order online, on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and other major booksellers.
About the Book
“Man’s best friend” is more than a phrase to Kevin Behan. He adheres to a persuasive, experience-based belief that dogs feel what we feel. This, he writes, is how a dog “knows” its place and what it must do to get along — not through the currently popular theories of dominance hierarchies or treat reinforcements. By contrast, Behan’s provocative model emphasizes what dog and man have in common. Though human and canine do not share thoughts, instincts, or genes, in this book Behan shows that they do share a primal consciousness driven by the energy of emotion. Humans evolved by using their heads, but domesticated dogs evolved by reading our hearts. So dogs don’t respond to their owners based on what their owners think, say, or do; they respond to what the owner feels. In this way, Behan shows in Your Dog Is Your Mirror, dogs can actually put people back in touch with their own emotions. No surprise to dog-owners, “no one knows you like your dog”.
