Top Picks for Canine Companionship in Doggy Literature

“Fall Reads Unleashed: A Pawsitively Tail-Wagging Book Review”

As the crisp autumn leaves fall, I’ve gathered a stack of captivating reads to share with fellow animal enthusiasts. A quick note: I’m fortunate to receive many books, and as a dedicated reader of dog and cat literature, I’ve handpicked four gems from my recent stack, with a promise – no bad reviews here.

So, without further ado, let’s dive into the top canine and literary treasures I’ve discovered this season.

1. For the Dog Obsessed: “Dog Lessons” by Hersch Wilson

“Dive into heartfelt stories that illustrate how much we can learn from dogs – as long as we’re open to learning. Whether you’re nodding, laughing, or shedding a tear in recognition, this narrative and meditative journey is a must-read for dog lovers.”

Hint, hint: A perfect holiday gift for the dog aficionados in your life.

2. For the Young Reader: “Canis Magicus” by Heidi Colonna

“With a title as enchanting as the story itself, this adventure is tailored for young readers around age 9. Join a young girl finding her voice alongside special dogs she meets, including sweet Greta and the mysterious Al. A heartfelt tale woven from personal narratives and a genuine love for our canine companions.”

3. For the Mystery Lover: “Playing Dead” by Peggy Rothschild

“A confession: I accidentally started with the second book in the series, but it stands alone brilliantly. A speedy mystery with dogs at its core, this cozy read will keep you on your toes. Add both books to your cart for a double dose of canine mysteries this fall!”

4. For the Problem Solver: “Positive Training for Aggressive and Reactive Dogs” by Annie Phenix

“If you’re navigating life with an aggressive, reactive, or fearful dog, consider this book a game-changer. Packed with modern techniques and compassionate strategies, it’s a valuable resource that could have saved me tears and years during our early days with Lucas.”

What’s Next on My Reading List:

  • A re-read of “Dog Songs” by Mary Oliver: “A lovely collection of poems about dogs that I’m eager to rediscover after recently finishing Oliver’s ‘Devotions.'”

  • Decoding Your Cat by American College of Veterinary Behaviorists: “Following the joy I found in ‘Decoding Your Dog,’ I’m diving into this insightful exploration of common cat behaviors.”
