What dogs really need is a spokesperson, someone who will assert their specific needs. Renowned anthrozoologist Dr. John Bradshaw has made a career of studying human-animal interactions, and in "Dog Sense" he uses the latest scientific research to show how humans can live in harmony with not just dominion over their four-legged friends.
