As recommended in our forthcoming interview with author and anti-puppy farm campaigner Janetta Harvey. Here’s what she has to say:
John Bradshaw’s In Defence of Dogs is another favourite, there’s so much useful, fascinating information in it that I think anyone thinking about bringing a dog into their life should read it. He writes brilliantly about how dogs lives have changed as our society has altered over the years and how this means the demands we make on dogs are, in some ways, unreasonable.
Bradshaw attempts to overturn the most common myths about dogs’ emotions and behaviour, showing how we should treat the real dog, who wants to be part of the family and enjoy life.
