Veterinary behaviorist Dr. Debbie Horwitz talks about how dogs and cats might be anxious at this time of year, and what to do about it. Dr. Horwitz is a contributing editor to a pair of amazing books for the pet lovers in your family, Decoding Your Dog and Decoding Your Cat. I wrote the introduction to each book, but more important each book was authored by members of the American College of Veterinary Behaviorists, ultimate experts on the topic of animal behavior.
I talk with author Lisa Wiehebrink about her children’s books with humane messages: Love Me Gently: A Kids Guide to Man’s Best Friend and Grey Whiskers: A Kids Guide to Growing Older. Lisa says, “If we can teach children how to be kind to animals, there’s a really good chance they’ll be kind to people too.” Learn more at www.tailsthatteach.org.
