Praise for Wag: The Science of Making Your Dog Happy

“Zazie Todd does dogs the immeasurably good favor of taking their happiness seriously. Todd is dialed in to the science of dogs and a thoughtful trainer of dogs. Everything she writes about, you want to know. Wag is a welcome addition to the books geared to helping you help your dog.”
Alexandra Horowitz, author of Our Dogs, Ourselves: The Story of a Singular Bond, and Inside of a Dog: What Dogs See, Smell, and Know (a NYT bestseller)

“If you care about your dog, you need this book. It's packed with insights from the latest canine science, and loads of advice on how you can give your dog the happiest possible life.”
Dr John Bradshaw, author of Dog Sense [In Defence of Dogs].

“The more science learns about dogs, the more extraordinary they turn out to be. And the more we understand them, the better able we are to care for them, to guide them, to make them happy. But cutting-edge science can be hard to get your head around. So thank you Zazie Todd for sorting through it all, making it relevant, and keeping it simple. This is a book your dog will want you to read.”
Dr. Mark Evans, former RSPCA chief vet and TV presenter

"Wag will become a benchmark for the way that dogs need to be cared for: as sentient creatures experiencing emotions, just like us. This is a real achievement and it will make a big difference to the lives of dogs and people.”
Dr. Pete Wedderburn, veterinarian and newspaper columnist 

"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

“Using the latest canine science, Zazie Todd gives us a clear and compassionate guide to bringing out the best in your dog.”
Gregory Berns, NYT-Bestelling author of How Dogs Love Us

“Our species has spent thousands of years trying to shape domestic dogs to our ever-changing lifestyles, but only in the past century have we seriously considered the unique needs of our canine companions. Fortunately for all of us, Dr. Zazie Todd has written a delightful, compact, evidence-based guide to building better partnerships with our dogs and sending more joy their way."
Bronwen Dickey, author of Pit Bull: The Battle over an American Icon

Wag is the perfect title for Zazie Todd’s lovely and insightful book. It seems simple, but your dog’s happiness and well being is wonderfully complicated — and often different for every dog. Wag is a gift you should give to every friend or relative who has a new dog or puppy in their lives. It’s organized with great sidebars, original insights from vets and dog experts, and helpful lists at the end of each chapter. Zazie Todd, a pyschologist and dog trainer, gives us the latest research and insights that can help you better understand your dog. Practical, compassionate, thorough — and based on science rather than wishful thinking — Wag is also a gift you should give to yourself and the dog or dogs in your life. I loved it!” 
Cat Warren, author of the New York Times bestseller, What the Dog Knows: Scent, Science, and the Amazing Ways Dogs Perceive the World.

"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."
Hal Herzog, author of Some We Love, Some We Hate, Some We Eat: Why It’s So Hard To Think Straight About Animals.

“Well-written and packed with great advice, this book could fundamentally change the relationship between you and your dog."
David Grimm, author of Citizen Canine: Our Evolving Relationship with Cats and Dogs

“Beautifully written and meticulously researched, Wag brings the latest and best science on dog welfare, behavior, training and health to bear on the paramount topic for all of us interested in dogs: their happiness.  Required reading.” 
Jean Donaldson, Academy for Dog Trainers

Wag: the Science of Making Your Dog Happy is one of the most comprehensive and engaging books about dog behavior that you will ever read.”
Victoria Stilwell, Celebrity dog trainer and host of It’s Me or the Dog

“Love dogs? Then you’ll love Wag! Dr. Todd skillfully translates dozens of recent scientific studies into practical recommendations for all of us who strive to reciprocate the joy our dogs provide us so often and so well.”
Kathy Sdao, applied animal behaviorist and author of Plenty in Life is Free: Reflections on Dogs, Training and Finding Grace

"I have long admired Dr. Todd's ability to smoothly blend current science into her incredibly informative, engaging, useful, relevant, dog-related writing, and this book is no exception. I will be making it required reading for all my dog trainer academy students and interns, adding it to my recommended reading list for all of my clients, and I also suggest that it be mandatory reading for all who care about making life happier - and better - for dogs." 
Pat Miller, Peaceable Paws and The Whole Dog Journal
