      Alexandra Horowitz - Our Dogs, Ourselves: The Story of a Singular Bond

      In her new book, Horowitz, who teaches and runs the Dog Cognition Lab at Barnard College, follows the lessons of her classic Inside of a Dog with an engaging and illuminating exploration of the human-canine relationship. Dating back centuries, this bond has been integral to the development of both people and dogs. Yet while the two species are closer today than ever, our treatment of our best friend is full of surprising quirks: we regard dogs as members of the family and dress them in sweaters and raincoats, but they’re our legal property. We praise their individuality, but breed them for uniformity. What results is a provocative and altogether winning continuation of Horowitz's landmark work.
