Society & Culture

Dog-cognition expert and bestselling author Alexandra Horowitz (Inside of a Dog) takes us on a walk into the scruffy, curious, joyful world of dogs. What does it mean to "own" a dog? Can dogs demonstrate genuine heroism? And what is it like to experience reality primarily through smell? Off Leash is a delightful and surprising look at the deeply familiar, profoundly mysterious animals who walk alongside us.

I’m happy that Soledad O’Brien adopted a pandemic pup, but that wasn’t what I wanted to hear. The actual interaction with the geneticist was such a small portion of the episode! I learned nothing about dogs’ sense of smell. And there’s so much they’re doing with that now! I learned more from a recent no... more

  • why do some people still dock tails? partly to maintain a traditional look and partly to avoid "happy tail" injuries. docking a 3 day old puppy whose nervous system isn't fully developed and whose tail is very small in diameter is a lot less traumatic than amputating the large diameter fully enervated tail of an adult that has had its tail broken or lacerated and is fli ging blood with every wag.
