Many stories include dogs; surely, you can think of several. But what are the best books for a dog lover? We have chosen our favorites so that you have a list at hand when you don't know what to read. Check them up!

Books for a dog lover

To be honest, the choice was not easy because there are many excellent books with canine protagonists. Horror lovers might be upset that we've left Stephen King's Cujo out, but decided to focus on heartwarming stories 😀.

The Call of the Wild by Jack London

We start our list of the best books for a dog lover with this all-time classic. Jack London introduces us to Buck, a dog who succumbs to his most primitive instincts when a series of events befall him pulling a sled in frozen Alaska during the gold rush.

White Fang by Jack London

How to forget the most famous of Jack London's books. While White Fang is half dog half wolf, it's worth making this list. His story shows us different facets of the human, including those that we would rather not know, through the life of an animal that cannot find his place in the world.

A Dog's Purpose by W. Bruce Cameron

This wonderful New York Times bestseller tells us the story of Bailey, a puppy who discovers the meaning of his life through the impact it has on the humans that make up his family. The story is as endearing as it is unforgettable.

8 best books for a dog lover

Where the Red Fern Grows by Wilson Rawls

Without a doubt, it is one of the great classics of children's literature. If you didn't read it, don't let anything stop you. This is an emotionally powerful book about a boy and his hunting dogs. We can not anticipate anything else. Go ahead and read it!

The Story of Edgar Sawtelle by David Wroblewski

Edgar Sawtelle lives a dream life on his Wisconsin farm where his family has raised dogs for generations until his father dies in unclear circumstances. The arrival of Claude, his uncle, shortly before his father's death and Claude's sudden interest in winning the affection of her mother leads Edgar to believe that his death was no accident.

When his plan to prove his guilt backfires, he is forced to flee with his three big furry companions... and to find a way to survive.

Because of Winn-Dixie by Katie DiCamillo

When 10-year-old Opal Bulona finds Winn-Dixie, a beautiful little dog, her summer changes completely. A story about courage and love that allows us to understand how a true friend can modify our perception and our life.

Which book should I read if I'm a dog lover?

The Friend by Sigrid Nunez

Can death unite two beings in pain? After the death of her best friend, a woman is left in charge of her Great Dane. The story will take you to know the enormity of the loss and the birth of a new friendship.

Oogy by Larry Levin

"The essential is invisible to the eyes". So Larry Levin and his family fell in love with a dog known by everyone as "the ugliest they have ever seen." But love and friendship don't know beauty, do they? A heartwarming story.

Merle's Door by Ted Kerasote

In this true story, the author recounts how he met his dog, a Labrador who lived in freedom, and how, after taking him home and calling him Merle, he realized that his furry friend needed to combine the two worlds to be happy.

These are some of the best books for a dog lover, but there are many more. In fact, you can also read The art of racing in the rain by Garth Stein, a story that we have included among our favorite films for a dog lover, Shiloh by Phyllis Reynolds Naylor, or Watchers by Dean Koontz among others.
