Founder of the blog, Companion Animal Psychology, where she writes about training methods and the human-dog relationship, Zazie Todd has written Wag: The Science of Making Your Dog Happy (Greystone $26.95). Combining the latest canine research with recommendations from leading veterinarians, researchers and trainers, Todd demystifies the inner lives of dogs and provides advice for cultivating a rewarding relationship with your pet. For example, not many know that seemingly noiseless electronics may be upsetting their dog. And if you really want to give your pooch a gift that it will appreciate, one of the best things is let your dog sniff the breeze. Zazie Todd is a social psychologist, certified dog trainer and author. She writes a regular column for Psychology Today magazine and won the Captain Haggerty Award for ‘Best Training Article’ in 2017. She has a Ph.D. in Psychology (University of Nottingham) and an MFA Creative Writing (UBC).
