This month, the Animal Book Club is reading Dogopolis: How Dogs and Humans Made Modern New York, London, and Paris (Animal Lives) by Chris Pearson.

From the back cover,

"Dogopolis presents a surprising source for urban innovation in the history of three major cities: human-canine relationships.

Stroll through any American or European city today and you probably won’t get far before seeing a dog being taken for a walk. It’s expected that these domesticated animals can easily navigate sidewalks, streets, and other foundational elements of our built environment. But what if our cities were actually shaped in response to dogs more than we ever realized?"

This and all of the book choices (and more!) are available in my Amazon store:

If you'd like to join the book club discussion on Facebook, subscribe to my free Companion Animal Psychology newsletter and you'll get the password to the group as part of your welcome emails. Book club members must agree to read at least 7 of the books each year. Of course, you are also welcome to simply read alongside without joining the group.

To whet your appetite, you can read an extract from the book via Lapham's Quarterly.
