Have you ever been amazed by your dog? By his natural ability to detect scent or alert to danger? Dogs’ behavior has long mystified and impressed humans, and in his new book “Power of the Dog: Things Your Dog Can Do That You Can’t,” author Les Krantz examines their unique abilities.
As a U.S. Air Force veterinary technician during the Vietnam War, Krantz heard incredible tales of dogs saving the lives of soldiers. These stories stuck with him and inspired him to explore dogs’ behavior. Blending the latest scientific research with anecdotal accounts of dogs’ super-human abilities, the book offers insight into some of the most fascinating traits of canine kind.
There are many things we know about canines: They have a superior sense of smell and hearing, they can survive in harsh environments and they are extremely intelligent. But can they actually detect thunderstorms or predict earthquakes? How can a lost dog find his way home or help humans heal? Do dogs sense your emotions or an impending death? These questions, and many more, are addressed in an interesting, easy-to-read format that will captivate any dog lover.
