What is a happy dog?
Listen to a 2022 presentation on the latest research about our pet dogs by Dr. Sasha Protopopova, assistant professor in the Animal Welfare Program at the University of British Columbia and the NSERC/BC SPCA Industrial Research Chair in Animal Welfare.
An introductory new look at what it means to be a dog and how we, as professionals and dog lovers, can be more effective at helping dogs live good lives with us.
You might be surprised to learn dogs didn't descend from modern wolves. And did you know that about 75% of the world's dogs are free ranging and free breeding, of no breed?
