Understanding Dogs

Understanding Dogs by Clinton R. Sanders was a fabulous read.

Sanders is a sociologist and his book is an autoethnographic account of his life with dogs. While sharing some of his personal experiences and thoughts, Sanders also provides information he obtained through his interviews with veterinarians, service dog trainers and dog owners themselves.

I not only liked the book because he used a similar writing style to the one I am using in my thesis, but I also found it easy to read and extremely interesting.

My only real criticism is that he used the term ‘handicapped,’ which is a big no-no in my opinion. The book was not written that long ago, so I feel as though Sanders should have been more aware of the accepted terminology.
