Dog Behavior Training Specialist
Its all about supply and demand. Like it or not the truth is Dogs are a commodity. An $11 Billion dollar business that includes rescues and shelters. Author Kim Kavin reveals how dog merchants create markets for dogs, often in defiance of the usual rules of supply and demand. With a back ground in journalism she takes an investigative approach and meets breeders and rescuers at all levels, shedding much-needed light on an industry that most people don't even realize is an industry. An eye opener for every dog guardian!
Dr. Dodman DVM breaks new ground with the practice of One Medicine, the profound recognition that humans and other animals share the same neurochemistry, and that our minds and emotions work in similar ways. Fear, anxiety, stress and genetics contribute to the same underlying conditions their humans experience. You'll read about astonishing cases from animals with autism, OCD, epilepsy and other mental health conditions. This book emphasizes the similarities rather than differences between animals and humans and how we can help.
