I am thrilled and honoured that Wag: The Science of Making Your Dog Happy has won the Dog Writer's Association of America award for book - behavior, health, or general care.

Wag: The Science of Making Your Dog Happy has won a DWAA award. The book is pictured with a red glass bird and a red glass mat.
