Happy Dogs and More Happy Dogs with Radio New Zealand

I spoke about dogs with Jim Mora for Radio New Zealand's Sunday Morning--and then came back to answer listeners' questions.

Recently, I chatted all about dogs with Jim Mora for Radio New Zealand's Sunday Morning. We talked about my book, Wag: The Science of Making Your Dog Happy, the importance of reward-based training and enrichment for your dog, and the relationship between dogs and their people.

You can listen to that interview here: Dr. Zazie Todd: how we know your dog loves you.

Then I came back to answer listeners' questions about dogs. We didn't manage to fit them all in, but we covered lots of topics from dog training treats and the best ways to train your dog or deal with behaviour issues and what kind of dog is best for you.

If you missed my earlier interviews with Jim Mora about cats, you can find the first interview about Purr here, and the second one answering listeners' questions about cats is here

Happy listening!
