"Be as happy as your dog is the most important book you will read this year. We have been so distracted with what we can teach our dogs, we never realized that one of our most inspirational, upbeat, optimistic friends are, and always have been, willing to share their philosophy with us. Based on the new research in positive psychology, Waitzman shows us how understanding our dog's mind and behavior can lead us to a happier, more fulfilling life. A pawsitively delightful read."

- Brian Hare, New York Times Bestselling author of The Genius of Dogs

"Michelle has the unique ability to approach happiness in a way that is friendly and practical, but backed by science. She entertains us through her ability to weave happiness together with our dear companion, the dog. What a great combination!"

- Kim Strobel, happiness coach, motivational speaker, dog rescue advocate

"Be as Happy as Your Dog is brilliantly written to be lighthearted, but such an eye-opening read. I'm someone that jokes often, "dogs have it so hard"-being told when they get to eat, where they get to sleep, or when they get to go out to adventure. But they truly have such a present joy for life, and we can learn so much from them. Michelle Waitzman really captures the here and now approach with which dogs live their life, and we can certainly take some notes on how to incorporate this into our own wellness. Thank you, Michelle, for taking us on a journey through our dogs' eyes."

- Nicole Barnett, force-free dog trainer
