What is The Happy Pet Challenge?

Five weeks. Five activities. Five times.

The Happy Pet Challenge is a five week email course that you will get free with your subscription to The Pawsitive Post.

Every week, there is a new activity for you to do with your pet on five days of the week. And there's a lesson for you to read about how this activity helps to make our pets happy.

The activities are suitable for dogs or cats and you are free to make changes if needed for your pet (e.g. if your pet has special needs). 

Share your photos of taking part in the challenge on social media with the hashtag #HappyPetChallenge.

Dr John Bradshaw, author of Dog Sense [In Defence of Dogs].

 "Wag is a must-read for all dog lovers. An amazing, well-written book that makes canine science easy to understand and apply in a useful manner to improve dogs' lives and the relationship we have with them. The anecdotes about Dr. Todd’s dogs are the highlight of the book."
Dr. Wailani Sung, board-certified veterinary behaviorist

In Wag, psychologist and dog trainer Zazie Todd shows dog owners how they can use the latest research in the exploding field of canine science to improve the lives of their pets. Dog lovers will find this book fascinating, and their pets will be delighted their owners read it."
