Ten Must-Read Dog Books
1. Pretty Pet-Friendly
Any book that discusses the ins and outs of pet feng shui will most likely end up on our book shelf.
2. The Art of Racing in the Rain
A novel written through the eyes of a senior dog recapping his days and providing insight into human nature.
3. Why Dogs Are Better Than Cats
Agree to disagree…or not
4. The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime
Great little fiction book about a boy with Asperger’s who solves the murder of his neighbor’s dog:
5. Cesar’s Way – Cesar Millan’s first book that’s part autobiography and part philosophy on life with dogs.
With multiple dog behavior books on the market, he’s the big dog on the block these days, but this one in particular is a pretty inspiring read about his childhood in Mexico and his journey into the States and how he’s made his way to be The Dog Whisperer.
6. Tell Me Where It Hurts
Cindy declares this one is a MUST READ!
7. Don’t Dump the Dog
Honest. Hilarious. Shocking. Disturbing.
8. Dogs of Babel
A novel about a man who’s wife fell out of a tree, and the sole witness was their dog. He becomes obsessed with trying to find out what happened to his wife, and their dog is a big part of the story. Cindy says she read it many many years ago and still think about it sometimes…
9. Shelter Dogs –
A photography coffee table-esque book featuring portraits of shelter dogs by an animal photographer. They include descriptions of the dogs, including stories about what happened to the dogs (not all of them made it to their forever homes…).
10. Dirty Bow-Wow
Honorable Mention: Marley and Me – We face federal prosecution if we don’t mention this one in a dog book list.
