Merle's Door: Lessons from a Freethinking Dog

Merle's Door: Lessons from a Freethinking Dog Review

The book is about the lives of a man, Ted and a canine, Merle. A story of their relationship and their lives as individuals as well. This book is about the both of them - and how they age together and get through life's trials and tribulations, loves and losses.

Dogs do think and communicate - something that I've experienced myself (not an imagined ideal). I liked the author's approach of treating Merle as a true companion rather than a "pet".

The book made me think of my own dogs' lack of stimulation - is two walks per day along the exact same route stimulating? Of course not.

To find a safe and secure place for one's dog to run off leash and thrive in that freedom was an important reminder this book gave to me about truly giving them a happy life.

Merle's Door: Lessons from a Freethinking Dog Overview

Now including a wonderful new photo insert chronicling Merle’s life, this national bestseller explores the relationship between humans and dogs. How would dogs live if they were free? Would they stay with their human friends?

Merle and Ted found each other in the Utah desert— Merle was living wild and Ted was looking for a pup to keep him company. As their bond grew, Ted taught Merle how to live around wildlife, and Merle taught Ted about the benefits of letting a dog make his own decisions.

Using the latest in wolf research and exploring issues of animal consciousness and leadership and the origins of the human-dog relationship, Ted Kerasote takes us on the journey he and Merle shared. As much a love story as a story of independence and partnership, Merle’s Door is tender, funny, and ultimately illuminating.
