Get Into Your Small Dog’s Mind with This New Book

In David Grimm’s new book “Citizen Canine: Our Evolving Relationship with Cats and Dogs,” the award-winning journalist and online news editor of Science traces the journey of dogs and cats from wild animals to family members, both in our homes and in the eyes of the law.

 

We talked to him about recent developments in understanding dogs’ minds, how our relationships with them have gotten to where they are, and where things may be headed in the future.

 

How did the idea for the book come about?
I have always been interested in animals. I wanted to be a veterinarian when I grew up, and I worked in a vet clinic part-time for six years in high school and college. So I’ve always wanted to write about animals, but I wanted to write a pet book that no one had written before: one that explores the changing status of cats and dogs in society.

It’s interesting to find out where our beloved animals come from and what makes them tick.  This is a great opportunity to get into your small dog’s mind with this new book, and learn new ways on how to train and handle your fur baby.
