While most people see dogs as their faithful companions, others see these canine friends as something more — something life-altering. And in the past few months, a bunch of dog-related books have hit the market which shows how these little ordinary pets can become extraordinary. Here’s the pick(s) of the litter:

“Through a Dog’s Eyes”
by Jennifer Arnold
“Through a Dog’s Eyes” is both prescriptive and descriptive in how dogs think as well as a look into Arnold’s choice-based, positive-reinforcement teaching methods. Think dogs can’t reason? Read her stories on how dogs can sense seizures and turn on ventilators.

“Oogy: The Dog Only a Family Could Love”
by Larry Levin
When author Larry Levin and his twin sons, Dan and Noah, rescued this scared and damaged dog in 2002 (Oogy had been used as bait for fighting dogs) little did they know how he would change their lives — for the better.

“The Lost Dogs: Michael Vick’s Dogs and Their Tale of Rescue and Redemption”
