    "The genius of Chaser, and of Professor Pilley’s work, is not only about how they have schooled the world on the hidden intellectual capabilities of the canine, but about how they have revealed to us all, in quantifiable terms, the true depth of the bond between humans and dogs.  The real lesson here is how, given enough time, innovation, and love, there are no limits to what can be accomplished with one’s own dog. A good dog can change your life: a great dog, the world."


    "After you read Chaser, you will realize that you may have underestimated the intelligence of your dog.  Marvelous insights into a dog's mind."
