    Fantastic Book!

    Posted by Pat Miller on 19th Jun 2020

    Dr. Zazie Todd has a gift for making science readable, fun and accessible, so she can reach regular dog owners (as well as us behaviors science geeks) with her incredibly valuable information. I love her vitally important message: our goal in our relationships with our dogs should be to give them a happy life.
