Animals Make Us Human: Creating the Best Life for Animals

Accomplished scientist, professor, author, and animal advocate, the remarkable Temple Grandin uses her personal experience with autism and “thinking in pictures” to explain how animals perceive their environment. In Animals Make Us Human, she offers eye-opening, fascinating insight into how the animals in our care feel and why they behave the ways they do. Grandin says that determining an animal’s physical pain is easy, but recognizing emotional distress is much harder. By identifying and understanding animals’ core emotion systems we can stimulate positive emotions like seeking and playing while ensuring they’re free from negative ones like fear, panic, and rage. If you’d like to become a better advocate for our fellow creatures or would simply like to learn how to create the best possible physical and emotional environment for your own dogs, Animals Make Us Human is a must-read, forever changing your idea of what animals want and need.
