More Information
Merle, a 10-month-old pup with the looks of a reddish yellow Lab, was looking for someone to hang his heart on, while Ted, 41, had been searching for a pup he could shape into a companion. They found one another, & the ensuing training went both ways. Ted showed Merle how to live around wildlife, & Merle reshaped Ted's ideas about the complexity of a dog's mind by showing him how a dog's intelligence could be expanded by allowing it to make more of its own decisions.

Acting as Merle's translator, & using Merle's life & lessons as a door into the world of dogs, Ted Kerasote takes us on the journey they shared. He explores why the dog-human bond is so intense & how people & dogs can communicate readily with each other. He also uses the latest wolf research to explain how sharing leadership with your dog, rather than being its alpha, can help to create a healthier, more self-reliant, & better socialized companion.

Funny, fascinating, & tender, National Outdoor Book Award winner Merle's Door is a moving love story that reveals how the partnership between dogs & humans can become far more than we have imagined.
