    #41 Jesse Freidin & Dr Robert Garofalo - When Dogs Heal: Powerful Stories Of People Living With HIV & The Dogs That Saved Them

    Hey Bookshelvers! Hope this podcast finds you all well.

    Here we are back for our first book review show since our mini hiatus and we couldn't be more excited to clue you in to what we think is a wonderful, powerful life changing book.

    When Dogs Heal by Jesse Freidin, Dr Robert Garofalo, Christina Garofalo and Zach Stafford have created and curated a wonderful, vital and life affirming work of art that is as world view changing as it is beautiful. Powerful stories and photographs of people living with HIV and the dogs who saved them.

    All the books we have reviewed on Barks From have made us think and grow but possibly none more than this. We are also thrilled and humbled to talk to Jesse and Robert all about this wonderful book.

    Delve deep and enjoy

    #39 Off The Shelf Episode 13. Gemma Hodson

    WE ARE BACK BOOKSHELVERS! 
     
     Corrin and Steve have been swaning (pun intended) around in Swanage for a week and are now back refreshed and ready for another "Off The Shelf" This time Nat, Corrin and Steve talk to the wonderful Gemma Hodson all about her passion in canine behaviour and movement. This is an often overlooked part of the whole behaviour picture and we think you'll find our talk really eye opening. As well as all the the dog geek outs you'd expect we also talk a whole lot about cheesecakes1, how Steve once had crabs (no not like that) and why Corrin and Nat are now required by podcast law to be present on the intros. 
     
     Take a deep breath and delve on in!
     
     Gemma Facts
     
     Gemma has lived a life with dogs of various breeds growing up in a house full of show dogs, but initially studied at Hartpury College for a career with horses going on to work at show jumping and event yards along with hydrotherapy centres. In the early 2000’s she started growing an interest in how pain affects movement & behaviour after one of her own horses developed gastric ulcers, this then became an obsession when returning to her love of dogs and attending dog classes could see dogs from an early age already experiencing difficulties.
     
     Wanting to expand on her observational skills she trained with Sarah Fisher doing TTouch & ACE, before deepening her knowledge of canine anatomy, physiology & movement alongside massage and rehabilitation with ICAT & the OCN in London & is a qualified behaviour practitioner with the ISCP. 
     Gemma combines her passion for canine behaviour and movement to help dog guardians get to the bottom of their dog’s problematic behaviours using gait & posture analysis to shine a light on potential issues, she is often called in by other canine 
     professionals to work with their clients for additional support and advice. 
     More recently Gemma has launched her Dynamic Dog Practitioner Programme where she teaches other dog trainers and behaviourist to spot the signs of discomfort in dogs that are linked to behaviour problems, and has been ask to be a Canine Arthritis Management Advisor by the founder of CAM, Hannah Capon.

    #38 Karen B. London PhD - Treat Everyone Like a Dog: How a Dog Trainers World View Can Improve Your Life

    #38 Karen B. London PhD - Treat Everyone Like a Dog: How a Dog Trainers World View Can Improve Your Life

    DAGNABBIT (Or should we say DOGNABBIT) BOOKSHELVERS!

    Back with ANOTHER stonkingly canine-tastic mind tickler of an episode for you! Just in time to cure those Monday blues...

    This week Steve & Nat are joined by the wonderful Karen London to talk all about her fabulous book Treat Everyone Like a Dog. As you can expect there is a whole load of topics and techniques to unpack on our journey to become better at employing the tactics we use with dogs upon our fellow humans.  That being said though we should be the blooming experts right? Lets find out.

    Karen Facts

    Karen B. London, Ph.D. is a Certified Applied Animal Behaviorist and Certified
    Professional Dog Trainer who specializes in the evaluation and treatment of serious
    behavior problems in domestic dogs. She began working with dogs in 1997, and has
    spent years working with clients in one-on-one consultations in addition to teaching
    group training classes, and giving seminars about canine ethology for trainers,
    veterinary and shelter staff, and the public.

    After graduation, Karen decided to switch to working with dogs. It was a natural
    outcome of her love for dogs in her personal life, and her scientific interest in species
    interactions and aggressive behavior in her professional life. She has enjoyed the
    change to becoming a dog behaviorist and trainer as dogs are easier to work with and
    less aggressive than the wasps she knows and loves.

    Karen is an award-winning author of six books on dog training and behavior, five of
    them co-authored with her mentor, Patricia B. McConnell, PhD. She blogs for
    TheBark.com and also writes the animal column, The London Zoo, for the Arizona Daily
    Sun. Her most recent book is Treat Everyone Like a Dog: How a Dog Trainer’s World
    View Can Improve Your Life.

    Karen lives in Flagstaff, Arizona with her husband and their two sons. She is an Adjunct
    Professor in the Department of Biological Sciences at Northern Arizona University,
    where she teaches tropical field courses in Nicaragua and Costa Rica called “Tropical
    Forest Ecology and Conservation” and a class for freshman about the importance of
    insects to society called “Sex, Bugs, and Rock N' Roll.

    #37 Dr Carri Westgarth - The Happy Dog Owner: Finding Health & Happiness With The Help Of Your Dog

    #37 Dr Carri Westgarth - The Happy Dog Owner: Finding Health & Happiness With The Help Of Your Dog

    Hey Hey Hey BOOKSHELVERS!
    Fancy another dive into the incredible world of dogs? Thought so.
    This week we have a stonker of an interview for you with the amazing Dr Carri Westgarth. Carri's new book “The Happy Dog Owner” gets released this week and it’s a winner (so go ahead and get yourself a pre order)!

    This one is packed full of WOW moments and was another case of wishing we had another hour to talk to Carri. 
    Fitting this one in quickly so Carri could promote the up-coming release this was one of the only times that Steve didn’t get to read the book which, as you’ll hear, he is very upset about 😉. For that reason we have put this out as a long form interview rather than a “Book Review Episode”. Fear not however as you will still get a brain full of doggy goodness as usual.

    Dr Carri Facts!
    Dr Carri Westgarth is senior lecturer in human animal interaction at the University of Liverpool and a full member of The Association Of Pet Behaviour Councillors (APBC). Her research has been featured in the Guardian, The New York Times and New Scientist and she has regularly shared her expertise on national TV and radio. Dr Westgarth has spent 15 years conducting scientific research into how people interact with their dogs, and the positive and negative impacts on their health they occur as a result. She has helped hundreds of dogs and their owners, match prospective owners with homeless dogs and new puppies, taught obedience and tricks, counselled owners through dealing with problematic behaviours such as aggression and trained official assistance dogs to work with handlers with disabilities.

    #36 Off The Shelf Episode 12. Karen Murray - Business Coach

    HAPPY SPRINGTIME BOOKSHELVERS!

    Back with all the verve of stalking Ridgeback and (of course) back with another banger!

    On this Off The Shelf episode Corrin, Nat and Steve get to virtually sit down and catch up with their long time friend & all round top human Karen Murray. Karen helped (and continues to help) us all learn to run our businesses because, guess what, we were not that great at it at the beginning.. So we thought it would be great to have her on the show to talk all things business. Karen also answers some of the Bookshelvers questions which were posted via the facebook page.

    Known to us as "Big K" she has been a constant source of knowledge and inspiration so sit back and suck it up!

Loved it!

Listened to this podcast, episode one this morning.
LOVED it! Steve & Nat are a great combo!
Valuable and necessary information for anyone that owns or works with dogs.
And to have the one and only Turid Rugass as a guest on the first episode.. just wow.

Makes me want to dig out my Calming Signals book once more!
