“The world is a very narrow bridge. Cross it with a dog.”

“When in doubt, walk your dog” is the first of many valuable maxims in Dog Lessons, a heartfelt reflection on what dogs can teach us when we open ourselves to listen and learn. After sixty-plus years living and working with dogs, Hersch Wilson shares self-deprecating stories and lighthearted musings on a life filled with fur-covered furniture, unexplained messes, and destroyed property. The resulting compendium of dog wisdom — from universal values like loyalty and curiosity to practical lessons on napping, playing, and avoiding a serious fight — is not only poignant but eminently good advice.


“Dog lover and master storyteller Hersch Wilson shows how our canine companions can teach us many valuable life lessons.”
— Marc Bekoff, author of Dogs Demystified

“A truly beautiful book and a must-have for any dog lover’s library.”
— Laura T. Coffey, bestselling author of My Old Dog

“Each chapter feels like an engaging walk in the woods.”
— Kathy Callahan, author of 101 Rescue Puppies

“Part meditation and part memoir, Dog Lessons takes readers off-leash to discover how our canine companions can unleash wildness, serenity, and joy.”
— Gary Kowalski, author of Goodbye, Friend: Healing Wisdom for Anyone Who Has Ever Lost a Pet
