The next time you want to book a book club, or get your kids a gift, you might want to consider buying a dog’s favourite book.
And the best way to do that is by purchasing the dog’s own book.
For example, if you’re shopping for a new book and your dog loves it, she’ll happily accept the book from your dog in exchange for a book you can read yourself, said Chris Lacey, a certified dog behaviorist and author of the book Dog Behavior: A Guide to Dog Training and Therapy.
Lacey said he’s heard of dog book clubs that started by giving out books to their members, then adding their own books as gifts.
But when you get a dog that is so enthralled by a book, it’s hard to imagine a situation where that doesn’t happen, he said.
If you’re not sure if your dog is ready for that kind of experience, Lacey said, then talk to her about it.
“I think if you do a lot of research about your dog and what books she likes, she will appreciate it,” Lacey told CBS News.
Lawn dachshunds love the latest releases of the Disney movies, too, which can be a great way to give them a taste of what’s to come.
“The most important thing is that she’s comfortable with the book, she likes it, and it’s something she’s going to enjoy,” Laceys said.
“She’ll pick it up and she’ll go, ‘This is great.
This is a really good book.
This book is so good.
I like this.'”
