With a big dollop of humor and affection, Katharina von der Leyen offers her expert advice in 77 Dates with Your Dog, suggesting 77 fun activities to enhance the relationship between dog owners and their four-legged friends—and have a good laugh in the process! For example, the seasoned dog expert recommends sharing a roast beef sandwich with your dog at least once—and sure, it could also be a bologna or cheese sandwich. Why? Because sharing food—or breaking bread together, to use a more biblical turn of phrase—connects not just people, but humans and their dogs. Going rowing together, as another example, is an excellent activity to see if your dog trusts you. The wobbling involved will make your dog a bit uneasy at first, but it will help him learn to rely on you. The book includes other joint activities from “jump in a lake together and swim” to “dig a deep hole together”—yes, actually, together! Von der Leyen explains in the book why these shared experiences can be so beneficial for people and their dogs, as well as provides other tips like the perfect canine massage technique. “Of course, it is only super for your dog at first, but you’ll be amazed at the energy that will suddenly spark between both of you,” promises the author. What to do on rainy days with a bored dog? Build an obstacle course in your living room. The first station could be a box with crumpled newspaper and hidden treats, and the second could be a pot with sunflower oil or an unusual-smelling toy to play with. Don’t worry, you don’t have to sniff along with your dog; you already did your part by building the course. After a good thorough round of sniffing and searching, your dog will be wonderfully tired. Some of the “dates” are funny, some are surprising, but all of them have been field-tested with the author’s own dogs. Entertaining your dog is not the primary goal here—it’s about truly getting to know the living creature you are responsible for and enjoying time together...and occasionally making time to just be quiet and still with him: date number 77.

What dog owner hasn’t done this? You anthropomorphize your four-legged friend, put thoughts and feelings into his or her head that he or she almost certainly doesn’t have, and basically turn your pet into a four-legged person. That is exactly how photographer Sandra Müller feels about her dog Maja—who inspired Dog People—the book that provides hilarious and creative photographic answers to the question: “What kind of person would this dog be?” Whether it’s Great Dane Holly as a couch potato or “Gismo” riding a Harley, these images and more make up the unforgettable and endearing collection of portraits of man’s best friend in Dog People. From the author’s foreword: “No, this book is not meant to be a fashion show for dogs and dog owners—dogs are not dolls and should only have clothes put on them when medically necessary. This book is simply a thought experiment: what kind of person would my dog be? Let’s be honest: who hasn’t given his or her dog a lengthy explanation of which the dog seems to listen intently and surely seems to understand every word? Yes, yes, I know… YOUR dog understands every word, just like mine!” The book is a colorful parade of dogs, from Giant Schnauzers to Pugs, from registered purebreds to street mutts. There is also a humorous description of each dog explaining how the outfit was chosen to make the particular animal a Dog Man or Dog Lady. For example, take “Gisbert,” a Pug who would surely be a doctor if he were human—as he loves his vet so much that all you have to do is say: “Dr. Uwe” and he pricks his ears—as much as any Pug can prick his ears, at least.
