Zazie Todd, a social psychologist, was intrigued by the behavior of her own dogs. She began to wonder how owners could make the world a better place for their canine companions. She asked experts what they felt could be done to make dogs happier and the results are incorporated in this book, along with practical tips and scientifically proven strategies for coping with everything from puppy behavior to special needs dogs and seniors. Don’t be deterred by the word “science” in the title of this book; the science is there to lend “street cred” to the wonderful information being presented. This book is for everyone who wants to better understand the dogs in their world.
