December 2019 Biscuit Topic

This month’s Biscuit series is a mixture of short articles on topics that recently have hit the popular press and may have importance for those of us working with pets or interpreting the scientific literature about pets.  Our first two Biscuits discuss whether the idea of mindfulness can be applied to dog training, from either end of the leash, both ends, or none!
