Importance of Environment in Lives of Dogs

Dog Talk (And Kitties Too!) (12-17-2016) #503: Melissa McCue-McGrath talks about how environment matters in whether a dog has a successful life with you in her book CONSIDERATIONS FOR THE CITY DOG, and explains how “noise sensitive” dogs don’t belong in an urban setting and why, surprisingly, Greyhounds can be the best city dogs; Heather Green describes her journey into TNR and how it changed her life (and that of the kitties she trapped/neutered/returned!) in her book TO CATCH A CAT: HOW THREE STRAY KITTENS RESCUED ME; Julie Forbes — a dog trainer and radio producer host of “The Dog Show” in Seattle (where Tracie had the pleasure of meeting her at the NY Dog Film Festival there — discusses how working with a dog is a parental role, balancing our masculine and feminine aspects.
