Welcome, Welcome and Welcome Bookshelvers!
Here we are at episode 5 of Barks from the Bookshelf :)
This one was a real pleasure to record! Steve and Nat get to talk to the bloomin' marvellous Zazie Todd about her book 'Wag: The Science Of Making Your Dog Happy'. What a book. It belongs on shelf of any dog lover in the world and will take you through the hows and whys of keeping those dogs happy from puppy-hood to their Autumn years. A truly accomplished piece of work.
Zazie Todd, Ph.D., has a Ph.D. in Psychology (University of Nottingham) and an MFA Creative Writing (UBC). Her book Wag: The Science of Making Your Dog Happy will be published in March 2020 by Greystone Books. She is the creator of Companion Animal Psychology, a blog about how to have happy cats and dogs, according to science. Todd won the 2017 Captain Haggerty Award from the Dog Writer's Association of America for her article, The Ultimate Dog Training Tip.
Zazie Todd grew up in Leeds, in the north of England, and now lives in Maple Ridge, BC, Canada, with her husband, one dog, and two cats
We also get to find out what Steve has been up to his shoulder in this week as well as getting to hear a "Slower" more "Sedate" Sista Behaviourista.
