Can thinking like a dog help overworked and overstressed humans live more enjoyable and successful lives? Yes, according to the book Secrets of a Working Dog: Unleash Your Potential and Create Success (Joseph Rudolph Publishers, 2011).

Written from the perspective of an opinionated and slightly mischievous boxer named Bella, Secrets of a Working Dog is for anyone who seeks straightforward and simple advice on how to balance the responsibilities and challenges of modern life and still have fun.

With help from her co-authors Ellen Galvin and Patrick Galvin, Bella blends wit and wisdom with good old-fashioned canine intuition to create an easy yet powerful read that takes humans on a walk of self-discovery.

“Bella’s been giving us unsolicited advice for years,” says Ellen Galvin, Bella’s co-author. "It was time to share her wisdom with everyone else who is struggling to stay sane and balanced in our fast-paced, hyper-connected world.”

The book contains contemporary case studies and interviews with successful, dog-friendly individuals and organizations across the country. Readers will learn how to:

  •     Make happiness happen
  •     Stay focused in a multitasking environment
  •     Connect with coworkers, colleagues or customers
  •     Shake off setbacks and pursue their dreams
  •     Step up as leader of the pack
  •     Show appreciation that builds long-lasting relationships
  •     Live fully while balancing work and play
