Last Minute Gifts for your Valentine

Are you behind on your Valentine’s Day shopping? Do you have Amazon Prime? We’ve got you covered.

 

DNA Test

Ever wondered what breeds make up your supermutt? Look no further. Embark tests for breeds, age, and health, so you can answer all your questions. Apparently, my dog is 6 years old and 50% Yorkie! It’s fun to do, and you’ll finally be able to answer the age old question, “What type of dog is that?” Although, I still default to the classic Parks and Rec answer, “Half wonderful, half amazing.” You do you!

The Other End of the Leash: Why We Do What We Do Around Dogs by Patricia McConnell, PH.D.

Description from site: An applied animal behaviorist and dog trainer with more than twenty years experience, Dr. Patricia McConnell looks at humans as just another interesting species, and muses about why we behave the way we do around our dogs, how dogs might interpret our behavior, and how to interact with our dogs in ways that bring out the best in our four-legged friends.

 

 

 

Inside of a Dog: What Dogs See, Smell, and Know by Alexandra Horowitz

Description from site: What’s it like to be able to smell not just every bit of open food in the house but also to smell sadness in humans, or even the passage of time? How does a tiny dog manage to play successfully with a Great Dane? What is it like to hear the bodily vibrations of insects or the hum of a fluorescent light? Why must a person on a bicycle be chased? What’s it like to use your mouth as a hand? In short, what is it like for a dog to experience life from two feet off the ground, amidst the smells of the sidewalk, gazing at our ankles or knees?

 

Happy Valentine’s Day, friends!
