Which behaviors are prewired into your dog, and which can you actually change? And, can dogs actually sense future earthquakes or detect cancer?With sound behavioral science and numerous funny, informative anecdotes, experiments, and firsthand observations,How Dogs Thinkshatters many common myths and misconceptions about our four-legged friends and reveals a wealth of surprises about their mental abilities and potential.
