Through My Dog's Eyes is the fourth studio album by the Italian avant-garde metal band Ephel Duath. The album's concept was conceived by guitarist and founding member Davide Tiso, in which the whole album is from the viewpoint of a dog.[6] The album's artwork is done by Seldon Hunt, who has done artwork for bands such as Sunn O))), Isis, Neurosis, and Earth.[3] The recording and mixing was handled by Novembre's drummer Giuseppe Orlando.[1]

In the same announcement that proclaimed professional poker player Guillermo Gonzales as the vocalist after Luciano George Lorusso quit the band, they also announced that the song "Breed" was listenable on their Myspace.[7]
