6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Robert Morris HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on March 21, 2004
Don't be misled by the title. (I was.) What we have here is a clever, carefully researched, and highly entertaining discussion of various breeds of dogs and the relevance of their dominant personality traits to male human beings. (Were Jeannette Wright to write a sequel, Women Are Dogs, would she suggest any significant differences between genders?) "Men are dogs?" Wright asks. "Not when you consider how wonderful dogs are! Written like a dog breed book, Men Are Dogs compares qualities of men to 42 breeds of dogs." I am among those who have serious doubts about astrology. Differences between and among those "born under the Pisces sign," for example, can be major and numerous. Not so with dogs within each of the 42 species. Contact the owners of (let's say) 100 West Highland White Terriers and they will describe their "Westies" in the same terms. That they refuse to be ignored, for example.
After explaining why men are like dogs and then how someone can determine "the right breed," Wright organizes her material within seven Groups: Herding, Sporting, Hound, Working, Terrier, Toy, and Non-Sporting. For each breed within a Group, she discusses
Physical Characteristics
Abilities & Interests Training
Social Skills
Type of Woman
Typical [Name of Species] Woman
Famous [Name of Breed] Man
Here's a brief sample: "Collie men are very handsome and catch people's eye. They have a friendly, open look about them and a great smile....[They] are excellent at herding people whether they herd them to ideas, places, or philosophies and beliefs. Gentle herders, most people are not aware they are being herded....A collie man is usually easy to train because he wants to please. He is intelligent and knows how to concentrate.

When you first read the title, you may think this isn't a serious book but Ms. Wright has done an amazing job of research and I think you will be amazed at how well thought out her profiles are. My wife laughed the whole way through reading my "Bulldog" profile as it was so accurate. Buy this book, you won't be disappointed!

i LOVE this book! i carried it around with me for a week after buying it and showed it to EVERYONE. its hours of fun and provides a no-pressure format for analyzing men, and loving them for who they are with all their individual issues and quirks. i found every man in my life -- from dad, to my boss, to my brother, to my best friend and my most recent fling!!
the quiz is fun, however i have to admit i go more on intuition than quiz results when identifying a man's breed. still, the descriptions are really on-point, and the illustrations are really cute!
cheers to jeanette wright! i cant wait for more!!

Those of us who have (and love) dogs understand that different breeds have very different temperments ... and we live with them and love them, knowing that who they are is what we decided to take home with us!
Too bad we have a more difficult time using this approach with men ... and often end up trying to change a man to be more like the person we'd prefer being with!
This book clears all of this up, and enables a woman to thoughtfully (and playfully!) examine the "breeds" of men to more clearly determine which ones are best for her. And, for those of us who have already chosen, we can use the criteria that Ms. Wright has established to identify our own man ... and understand in a greater way what his needs are, and how to best allow him to exemplify his wonderful attributes in the relationship.
I am on a quest to find an example of every breed that is described in this delightful book ... and have already found 18 of them!

Don't be fooled by this clever title. As a dog lover myself, I agree that dogs are WONDERFUL, LOVING and ENTERTAINING creatures, as well as the men in our lives. Even the illustration of the Basset Hound (my husbands breed) looked just like him! Style and creativity come to life on every page. GREAT fun for social gatherings. A must ADD to your own favorite library.
