Books For Dogs?

When I first heard someone say there were books for dogs, I thought it was a joke. Turns out it’s really happening. Audible, the company that offers tens of thousands of downloadable audio-books, is now expanding into the dog world.

Audible partnered with Cesar Millan to start a line of audio-books that will keep dogs company while their owners are off at work. They stay calmer and happier if they have the same voice talking to them, so audio-books can work better than music to sooth. In fact, your dog may be better behaved if he’s had a book to listen to during the workday. If you want to look into this new idea, just go to audible.com.

So hey, why not? I find audio-books quite relaxing myself. I’m not sure that you need to buy one from Audible that’s specially for dogs, though. Just try a book from your personal collection, or check out a few from your local library. Try different readers, and hopefully you can find a narrator that leaves your dog feeling as mellow as the one in the picture above.
