New Year’s Resolution: Be Your Dog’s Best Friend, not Vice-Versa

Dog Talk (And Kitties Too!) (01-02-2022) #760: Tracie wants to start the new year off by changing our perceptions about dogs. Who are they, really? What do they need to be their true selves? How do we provide them with lives that respect their needs? Tracie has a philosophical discussion with Sindhoor Pangal (Dog Knows: Learning How to Learn from Dogs), director of BHARCS—an academy training pet owners and professionals—with a diploma in Canine Behaviour and Ethology, in Bangalore, India.
