Listen Like a Dog

Jon Patch on Pet Life Radio

Jon Patch chats with Jeff Lazarus, author of Listen Like a Dog.  Although they don't understand most of our verbal language, dogs listen with their entire being. They don't interrupt us, finish our sentences, offer advice, try to top our stories or text us instead of talking to us. Dogs pay extremely close attention by studying facial expressions, observing body language, watching eye movements and listening to our voice patterns. Now bestselling author Jeff Lazarus is returning the favor in his new book, Listen Like a Dog: And Make Your Mark on the World.


Jeff Lazarus is a health science consultant with one of the world's leading pharmaceutical companies, serving as a scientific liaison to physicians, academicians, and health educators. He earned a BA in speech communications, with an emphasis in interpersonal and organizational communications, from Cal State University, Long Beach, and an MBA from Pepperdine University. He has taught public speaking at the university level and conducted numerous workshops on listening, presentation skills, and customer engagement. His first book, Dogtology, released last year, celebrated man's fanatical devotion to dogs.
