Companion Animal Psychology Blog is taking a summer break. Meanwhile, on twitter and facebook we continue to share links to the best writing about companion animals and their people. Why not join us?
If you’re looking for some summer reading (and listening and viewing), these are some of our favourites:
We’re delighted that some CAPB stories now appear in Pacific Standard, including Dog Training, Animal Welfare and the Human-Canine Relationship
Wild behaviour: The science of cats in boxes is explored in this Human Animal Science podcast with Sandra McCune.
We can’t resist this video from Japan of a cat falling asleep on a watermelon.
In Husbandry for Paws: The Finale Heidi Steinbeck of Great Shakes Dog Training demonstrates how to trim a dog’s nails.
Catch up on SPARCS with Canine Science Summer Camp by Julie Hecht and When science and Dogtraining come together – SPARCS 2014 by Jennifer Cattet.
Can a father’s stressful experiences affect his offspring’s stress system? Jessica Perry Hekman investigates epigenetics.
Finally, every week Malcolm Campbell publishes a list of the best science writing on the web in Morsels for the Mind. There are always plenty of great animal stories. On his own blog, we especially enjoyed Seeing eye to eye – humans, dogs and squid stare across an evolutionary divide
Companion Animal Psychology Blog will be back on 3rd September.
