The Scottish Collie
Not long now, my book ’In Search of Lassie’ will be published on the 25 January 2021. This happens to be Burn’s Night, which is so very apt for a book about the Scottish Collie.
I am so excited, and my hope is that potential dog owners, and those who yearn for a closer relationship with their wayward hound, might understand their emotions and that their dogs have emotions too. Through understanding how humans and dogs phylogenetically share brain structures we can learn to communicate more effectively. By unveiling Jaak Panksepp’s ‘Blue Ribbon Emotions’ we can avoid miscommunication and build a better bond with our dogs, so improving their lives as well as our own.
