Become a mutt mastermind with nine fun and easy-to-score personality tests. From dog speak to curious quirks, discover your pooch’s true nature to better nurture your bond.
It begins with a simple question: what are your dog’s classic behaviours? Whether high intensity or half asleep, every dog is unique. A bemusing ball of fluff, there’s a lot more to our barking mad, furniture-chewing, squirrel-chasing, loyal droolers than meets the eye. Each of their enigmatic actions and strange habits, pet peeves and preferences, tells us something about who they are and what they´re really thinking.
This hilarious book is pup psychology 101. Begin your lifelong quest of demystifying your pet´s mysterious mind by answering 81 multiple choice questions. Each code-breaking quiz represents a different area of a dog’s life and links to the Six Canine Characteristics (Dominant, Well Balanced, Extrovert, Introvert, Adaptable, Independent).
Sulker or Showman? Wild Child or Workaholic? Renegade or Captain? Match your answers to one or more of the 36 colourful pup profiles, adorably illustrated by artist Alissa Levy (@levysfriends), to discover a little more about their tells and traits and what these can teach you about them.
