For all the love and attention we give dogs, much of what they do remains mysterious. We have a good understanding of what it means when dogs wag their tails, but what about when they sniff and roll on a stinky spot? Why do they play tug-of-war with one dog, while showing their bellies to another? Why are some dogs shy, while others are bold? What goes on in dogs’ heads and hearts — and how much can we know and understand?
Join Marc Bekoff, author of “Canine Confidential: Why Dogs Do What They Do” as he brings a unique perspective to the study of dogs, and leads a captivating discussion on the inner workings of a dog’s mind.
