Marc Bekoff & Jessica Pierce -- "Unleashing Your Dog"

Marc Bekoff & Jessica Pierce will speak about and sign their new book, Unleashing Your Dog: A Field Guide to Giving Your Canine Companion the Best Life Possible, on Wednesday, March 20th at 7:30pm.

About the Book:
The phrase "it's a dog's life" connotes happy-go-lucky days. But our canine companions are in many ways our captives, no matter how cushy their captivity. In Unleashing Your Dog, Marc Bekoff and Jessica Pierce show that it is possible to let dogs be dogs without wreaking havoc on our own lives. They reveal what smell, taste, touch, sight, and hearing mean to dogs and then guide readers through everyday ways of enhancing a dog's freedom and minimizing deprivations in safe, mutually happy ways. The rewards, they show, are great — for dog and human alike.

Vouchers to attend are $5 and are good for $5 off the author’s featured book or a purchase the day of the event. Vouchers can be purchased now at the store, over the phone, or at the door. Readers Guild Members can reserve seats for any in-store event.
