Are you smarter than your dog?
Dogs and philosophers do the greatest good and get the fewest rewards.
Dogs can teach a lesson to anyone in business.

     Canines came in from the wild many millennia ago. They are the oldest domesticated animal and one of the most common household pets. These intelligent creatures brought with them huge benefits for humanity. The many jobs dogs perform for us is mind-boggling. They are guards, rescuers, herders, entertainers, guides, therapists, crime fighters, and much more.

     Above all, dogs are skilled entrepreneurs who have mastered the arts of communication, persuasion, and selling.

     Like any good businessperson, dogs are honest. There is not much chance of misunderstanding them. Happy, angry, wary, hungry, or on the alert, they let you know their state of mind.

     Like successful businesspeople, dogs know how to ask for what they want. It's a job they do with great expertise. While dogs can't speak, they do tell us their needs via body language that's easy to understand.

     Dogs understand how to engage. Their sincere excitement about and interest in their business partner (that would be you) is flattery on a level that's hard to resist. Whenever you are greeted by your dog, it's easy to understand the famous quote, sometimes attributed to Mark Twain, "My goal in life is to be as good a person as my dog thinks I am."

About the Book
"Who would you rather be lost in the woods with, Albert Einstein or Davey Crockett?" asks Michael Dalton Johnson author of the new business book Rules of the Hunt. (McGraw-Hill Professional; May, 2012; Hardcover, $26)

He continues, "Business schools provide a solid foundation for a career but it's not possible for them to give the experience needed to deal with the many day-to-day challenges and opportunities encountered in business."

In keeping with its subtitle "Real World Advice for Entrepreneurial and Business Success," the book departs from conventional business books in voice, content and format. The book contains over 200 "rules" delivered as brief anecdotes, short tutorials, humorous observations, case histories, an occasional rant and a few horror stories.

The final chapter is devoted to the author's advice for preserving physical and mental health while in the hunt for business success.

Subjects covered include leadership, negotiating, motivating people, time management, bartering, group dynamics, recruiting winners, sales, marketing, avoiding attorneys, relationships and personal growth.
