There’s a reason so many people have a strong bond with their dog. A dog’s full attention invites us to share more of our real selves with them and opens the way for pure and positive communication—even if it is nonverbal. Jeff Lazarus has given us a roadmap to living a happier and more productive life with this invaluable book. His tongue-in-cheek style will leave you laughing, but ultimately make you realize that your canine companion seriously has much to teach you about how to become a better listener!
