    One thought on “Bones Would Rain from the Sky: Deepening Our Relationships with Dogs”

    1. I received a copy of this audiobook from Tantor Media Thanks Tantor I ll be real here I requested this audiobook because of the cover I had a vague idea that this was a book of dog stories and had seen the title around for years yikes, I just realized this is likely because the hardcover is sitting in my tbr pile but I had to have it because that cover called out to me.Come on now, don t tell me you aren t tempted by that lovely cover because I won t believe you.Dog trainer and author Suzanne Cl [...]

    2. Of the books I ve read this year, I think this one might have been my absolute favourite so far Clothier writes in a way that I find it very easy to connect to.Ultimately, this book is the complete opposite of the one I read by Cesar Millan The basis of the book is respect, love, compassion, and understanding Clothier draws on her experiences with her own dogs and with her client s dogs to tell stories that illustrate each of her very well explained points.I think the main point of the book, wha [...]

    3. If you are looking for a hippy dippy, mystical dog training book, then look no further This book is all about understanding the dog at an emotional and yes spiritual level Clothier is a disciple of Linda Tellington Jones, the pioneer in bodywork with horses and dogs aka therapeutic massage that treats animals behavioural and emotional imbalances Clothier s basic thesis is that dogs have rich emotional lives and that without respecting that enough to build a high quality, equal, respectful and lo [...]

    4. The best book I have ever read on how to understand dogs and how to develop the kind of deep, almost spiritual connection that can enrich your life beyond compare Fascinating, funny and incredibly instructive, I gave a dozen copies away to my friends and recommended it to everyone from my vet to the man in line to buy dog food at the grocery store.I can thank Ms Clothier for the incredibly deep and satisfactory relationships I have with all the dogs in my life.

    5. One of the BEST BOOKS EVER I laughed and cried, sometimes at the same time It truly improved my relationship with my dog and confirmed some of the things I was already doing right that made people think I was crazy.

    6. I was browsing a GR bio memoir list and this book suddenly came to mind It is a book which helped to forge a different concept of relationship for my spouse with our new dog, thankfully Bones Would Fall From Heaven was the bow which tied up everything that I had intuitively understood about a relationship with dogs, but could never articulate Not really a training manual, Bones Would Fall From Heaven is directed to understanding how your dog belongs to you, how you are the loving leader meant t [...]

    7. Having heard many comments and recommendations about how good this book is I must say I was really dissapointed.The author keeps repeating the same things over and over and the redundancies made the book a tedious read every now and then After the book I was left with the feeling that I d have wanted anecdotes and descriptions of what kind of dogs she s worked with and what kind of things were done to make the dog s life better.I really love Clothier s article He Just Wants to Say Hi and expect [...]

    8. Wow.When I started reading this book, I didn t know what to expect I can t imagine NOT having a four legged family member, and I was told that it was a good book so I was excited to read it Little did I know just how amazing of a read it would be Written beautifully, it was easy to connect to and I enjoyed the little sprinkles of humor I honestly couldn t put it down I wanted to read , to learn about what she had to say This book not only has made me view my relationships with animals in a diff [...]

    9. This book was a real eye opener for me about dogs and how to communicated effectively with them The author is a very talented writer as well as an incredible dog behaviorist I learned a lot and hope this helps with my relationship with my pooches.

    10. Wow, I went from thinking I wouldn t end up finishing this to thinking it was one of the most profoundly moving books I ve read in a long time And tbh I think that s a good metaphor for the kind of emotional shift she s describing too I will write a longer review later once I ve had some time to sit with it I cried so much, in a good way This was not a dog behavior book Strange to say, it reminded me very strongly of Audre Lorde s work, especially one of my favorite of her essays, Poetry Makes S [...]

    11. I spent the first chapter or two wondering just how far off her rocker this woman might be, but it got better The author s beliefs and teachings aren t all that different from some others, she doesn t exactly say anything new , rather it s all just common sense Still she manages to present things in a way that sounds seems different, while also debunking some other stuff meaning rather than being in one specific beliefs camp or the other, there IS a way to borrow from both and stay in the middle [...]

    12. Loved it I had originally checked this out from the library but liked it so much that I bought my own copy and marked it up Since this book is mostly about having a good relationship with your dog, I was worried it would be a little New Age y and weird With the exception of the last 15 pages or so, it wasn t.The book is about philosophy than about training Clothier writes well and provides clear examples of what she means about getting into a dog s mind and considering things from his her persp [...]

    13. Even scientists fall in love, and it is said that some even talk to their dogs Not memoir, not a training manual, not quite a call to arms, Bones Would Rain From the Sky is a combination of all of these And Clothier examines her own journey from child who longed to be an animal, to a person who helps people like you and me connect deeply with and better understand our pets.She points out that connection is quite literally, a matter of life and death The leading cause of death in dogs in Western [...]

    14. I found this book unbelievably pretentious and boring There were a few bits of wisdom shared that I enjoyed, but what I learned from this book would fill less than a page double spaced on Word I felt like much of the book was the author rambling on and on I would have liked it had there been stories about dogs she s worked with, or if the stories that were included had been fleshed out a little The way her personal experiences were written felt incomplete and stilted, and I spent the book try [...]

    15. Long winded, repetitive Very little actual dog training advice, and what advice there is, is hidden within long personal stories and mounds of philosophy I hate the hypocrisy she criticizes other trainers for their incoherent philosophies but hers is just as incoherent She waxes poetical about the connection between humans and non human animals not just dogs , what one can learn from them if one would only listen, etc But she gladly kills other animals for her own pleasure How is it not cruelty [...]

    16. I ABSOLUTELY love this book I love working with dogs and this book really captures how I feel about working with the dogs I think she points out how we can learn about ourselves, and the people around us by opening ourselves up to being humane with the four legged creatures around us and how training should be a win win situation where it can add to our dogs lives and ours I read this a couple of years ago and I keep coming back to reread it from time to time to get a tune up, and I always pick [...]

    17. I m completely reevaluating the way I work with my formerly aggressive dog as a direct result of this book Listening to trainers, feeling generally compromised as a result, I can see a great deal of wisdom in dancing with your dog And guess what She LOVES it

    18. I have had this book for a while and wish I had read it when I first got it I might not be beating myself up for the last ten months for rehoming a beautiful, sensitive Doberman.

    19. I m finding words hard to come by at the moment I bought this book because I adopted a puppy 2 weeks ago and while I ve always been a huge dog lover and I ve always been around dogs, I d never actually been the sole owner of one I read this book hoping to learn how to train my dog to be the best dog he could be Going in with that expectation, I was not at all prepared for the gut check I was about to receive This is the 2nd book I ve read about dogs since getting my puppy and while the first boo [...]

    20. A good book to read A philosophical discussion on the responsibilities of training and living with puppies, dogs, and other animals The author opens the book from how a world would look from a dog s point of view, and how she was immersed to think and act like animals and gives specific examples of her experience as a trainer The key word is compassion in training Training and behavior cannot be rushed or forced, but emulated, taught, and reinforced with patience A friend can not be had in a day [...]

    21. Such an interesting book, with a fresh perspective on dog training, and on deepening our relationship with the dogs we share our lives with Both things require not just talking to the dog, but listening as well I appreciated this unfortunately rare view.It took me awhile to read this entire book, because there is a lot of information to consider I also did something I almost NEVER do when I read books I highlighted certain passages so I can refer to them later At times the author seemed a little [...]

    22. I wish I d read this sooner in the life of my dog but he taught me everything that allowed me to hear its message If you want to communicate with an animal first you have to believe it has something worthwhile to say Then you have to listen, really pay attention My pup who died a few days ago so that I finished this book without him communicated beautifully with me He was a master manipulator, but what he made me do was always better than what I was aiming for he wanted longer walks, beach time [...]

    23. funny how all dogs know that humans are not dogs, but many people don t realize that dogs are not humans this book is the best possible reminder of that simple fact it s also so beautifully written it s almost a prose poem dedicated to relationships between all cohabitating animals.

    24. It really seems like of an autobiography The author goes on and on about herself I gave up about 25% of the way through.

    25. Who else can better teach us to live in the moment, love unconditionally, and forgive but our best furry friends I absolutely loved this book.

    26. A new perspective, thoroughly enjoyed this read Recommended to anyone looking to get a different look at life in the company of dogs.

    27. Makes you thinkI read because I am raising a two year old Mini Australian but certainly made me think about my youth with my horses.

    28. A beautifully written book by a dog trainer, that could alternatively be entitled, Zen and the Art of Dog Training Through many anecdotes of both positive and negative experiences between people and their pets, the author brings the reader to awareness of the dog s perspective She invites dog owners and trainers to be present to listen, to hear, and to lead, with kindness.

    29. It s an interesting book, although not a recipe book for how to get your dog to do what you want, as the author reminds you several times I had high hopes after the humble beginning of the book, where she speaks of her path as a trainer and how frustrated she was learning from an older wiser trainer who replied Anywhere, unless the animal tells you differently in reply to a question about where to best touch a horse.But alas, the author did lapse into a somewhat smug tone in stories of dealing w [...]

    30. This is unlike other books regarding how to communication with and train your dog It is exceptionally well written and informative, yet not pedantic in nature.Those of us who lost a pet, can deeply relate to the last chapters So often, it feels futile to explain how grief feels, and how it punches us in the stomach till we topple over with tears Yet, this author insightfully, beautifully is able to transcend all the trite phrases and clearly outline how and why we embrace the love we continue to [...]
