Présentation de l'éditeur

In Your Dog Is Your Mirror, dog trainer Kevin Behan proposes a radical new model for understanding canine behavior: a dog’s behavior and emotion, indeed its very cognition, are driven by our emotion. The dog doesn’t respond to what the owner thinks, says, or does; it responds to what the owner feels. And in this way, dogs can actually put people back in touch with their own emotions. Behan demonstrates that dogs and humans are connected more profoundly than has ever been imagined; by heart; and that this approach to dog cognition can help us understand many of dogs’ most inscrutable behaviors. This groundbreaking, provocative book opens the door to a whole new understanding between species, and perhaps a whole new understanding of ourselves.

L'auteur est issu d'une famille qui travaille avec/dresse les chiens depuis des decennies. Il explique avec une multitude de details, provenants de son experience mais aussi de toutes sortes de sources (journalistiques, scientifiques), que le chien communique avec son maitre via les emotions, le chien sent les emotions de son maitre comme si elles etaient siennes, le chien est incapable de differencier ses propres emotions des emotions de son maitre. Par exemple (en tous cas je l'ai compris ainsi !) un chien qui attaque les autres chiens, ressentirait la peur sociale de son maitre et traduirait cette peur comme sienne en attaquant... pas les humains mais les chiens -puisque c'est un chien. Un livre presque en avance sur son temps.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Dogs DO think 29 juin 2011
Par PamandJana - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
I hoped for so much out of this book, having read early reviews, and was so disappointed.
I found the book to be primarily a testament to the enormity of the author's ego, starting with the description of an epiphany he experienced about the nature of dogs. At age 26, having read (and dismissed) college-level biology and behaviorism texts as well as a lifetime of his father's training experience, he knew better. He concluded that dogs have no intention whatsoever; their behavior is entirely a function of emotion, namely, desire. Thus, "when a dog went to bite me, I could see that the dog didn't intend to hurt me, dominate me, or defend himself or his territory ... there was something positive about me the dog was attracted to. The dog had no goal: he was simply attracted to me with a force of desire that for some reason was blocked, hence the aggression." That absurd notion became the foundation of Behan's work with dogs.

I have to disagree with a previous reviewer who insisted that the author doesn't say that dogs don't think. In fact, the author repeats that ridiculous assertion many times throughout the book, along with another favorite mantra, "A dog cannot remember, yet it never forgets." Add to that his insistence that dogs cannot perceive any point of view other than their own, dogs have no intentions or goals, and that everything a dog does can be traced to some emotion in the owner, and I quickly found myself wondering whether this guy had ever -- honestly and with an open mind -- LOOKED at a dog. Communicated with a dog. Bonded with a dog. Because anyone who has, knows that dogs think, feel, are self-aware, and can absolutely empathize and understand another's viewpoint -- whether that other is canine or human.

While I agree with the author that emotion is a primary driver of dog (as well as human) behavior, I disagree that it is the dog owner's emotion that is solely responsible. Dogs are separate beings from us, not merely empty vessels that reflect the worst of our emotional pasts back to us. They are brilliant and intuitive beings who deserve to be loved and valued for the individuals they are. Regarding them as our "mirrors" -- as extensions of ourselves -- is arrogant and egocentric and a terrible disservice to all dogs.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Profoundly Thought Provoking 9 février 2011
Par Seattle Dog Lover - Publié sur Amazon.com
Before I begin my review, I should address one of the main themes of this book, which some seem to have issue with. Behan never claims that dogs don't think. What he IS saying is that dogs are emotional beings, and that emotions are the primary driving force behind their behavior. I had to clarify that as it can easily be taken out of context and used as a negative sound byte.

Having said that, this book is not a typical training book. You won't find techniques to teach your dog to sit, stay, or come when called. There are plenty of books that do that. This goes much deeper than that. It offers a glimpse into the world of the dog that has yet to be explored. Though the language can be a bit difficult to digest at times, the ultimate reward is well worth it.

I can't recommend this book enough, as it challenges the reader to open their mind and shift how they view their dog and themselves. It challenges current paradigms and can at times evoke very emotional responses. Whether you believe you know all there is to know about dogs already, or you just got your first dog and want to know more about them, it really doesn't matter. Because love this book or hate it, you'll get exactly what you need from it. And how many books can you say that about.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Call of the wild 26 février 2011
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Part autobiography of a remarkable and singular career, part ode to the wild heart of the dog and its power to reconnect us with nature, this beautifully written book proposes an entirely new way of looking at our relationship with our dogs. While the author has spent a lifetime in the dog training business, this is not a training manual. Behan has set out with this work to detail the nature of animal consciousness as an emotional network, of which humans and canines form a unique interspecies partnership. Behan relates with humor and deep self-reflection how his upbringing observing and training thousands of dogs led him to questions not adequately answered by prevailing wisdom, and eventually inspired him to part ways with his father, early celebrity dog trainer John Behan, in order to dig deeper toward developing a totally unique model of understanding the canine mind. Today Kevin Behan is one of the most revolutionary minds in the business, and a pioneer in dog-owner rehabilitation.

Anyone familiar with the author's previous writings will be glad to learn this is (mostly) an easier read than Behan's normally dense prose. Every dog owner, animal enthusiast and nature lover should read this book.

Kevin Behan brilliantly connects the emotions between man and dog and how they interact. A must have for any dog owner who really wants to be connected to their dog over and beyond what's out there now.If you want your pet to be "alive"versus suppressed,with deep inner stress(creates aggression that we cause)and totally in their essence get this book...Life altering.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 highly reccomend this book, for you and your dog 15 mai 2011
Par D. Graham - Publié sur Amazon.com

I have read so much on dogs and am still looking for insight on how to better understand my dog. This book is really insightful, original, and truthful. If you have problems with your dog and all the clicker, obidience and communication books haven't resovled the problem, then read this book. You need an open mind and I really appreciated Behan's honesty. It is a book from the heart and from a great experience with dogs. I highly reccomend this book and gave it 5 stars because i couldn't put it down and loved it. It opened my mind and answered so many questions for me. If you are interested in psychology, spirtual work or just love your dog, read this book.
