This is a delightful, heart-warming and fascinating analysis of the unique bond between humans and dogs, perfect for anyone who shares their home with their dog and wonders just how much they love you. It will change the way you interact with dogs and help you get the best out of them in a way that will be truly life-changing.

Any dog owner knows that the bond with their dog is unique. The unparalleled loyalty and total devotion of a dog seems the stuff of true love – but is this a whimsical construction that bears little relation to reality?  Through ground-breaking scientific experiments and eye-opening historical evidence, canine behavioural psychologist Dr Clive Wynne unlocks the secret to our unique bond with dogs: their capacity to love, an unprecedented attribute in the animal kingdom.  In Dog is Love, Dr Wynne debunks the myth that dogs possess a unique form of intelligence. Instead, he shows that dogs are able to show sympathy and can respond to human emotions in a way that is truly remarkable. One particularly moving study shows that dogs’ and their owners’ hearts beat in synchrony, just as the hearts of a loving human couple do.

Dr Clive D. L. Wynne was born and raised on the Isle of Wight, studied at University College London, and got his Ph.D. at Edinburgh University. After time at the Ruhr-Universitat Bochum, Duke University, Universita¨t Konstanz, the University of Western Australia and the University of Florida, he joined the Psychology Department at Arizona State University in 2013, where he directs the Canine Science Collaboratory. He is also the Director of Research at Wolf Park in Battle Ground, IN.
