About Pet Expert Tracie Hotchner
Tracie turned her eye as a former investigative reporter to every aspect of living with dogs and cats, resulting in her encyclopedic resources THE DOG BIBLE: Everything Your Dog Wants You to Know and THE CAT BIBLE: Everything Your Cat Expects You to Know. Her all-encompassing books cover everything from medical issues to behavior, nutrition and problem solving, and gaining Tracie a niche as a leading pet expert and wellness advocate.
Tracie began her career as a radio personality with a live, call-in show — DOG TALK® (and Kitties, Too!) - on the local NPR station in the Hamptons, Peconic Public Broadcasting (WPPB) from Southampton, New York where it continues weekly after more than 350 shows and eight years on the air. It is also carried on the NPR station Robinhood Radio in Connecticut and the Berkshires. DOG TALK® won a Gracie® Award (the radio equivalent of an Oscar) in 2010 as the “Best entertainment and information program on local public radio.”
Tracie currently resides in Vermont with her husband, three dogs and two mini-donkeys. She has no plans at this time to write THE DONKEY BIBLE: Everything Your Donkeys Ass-ume You Already Know.
