Summer! Is there a season more freehanded in its glories? Endless sunshine, peak produce, and long days just made for exploring with a pup have us ready to jump into the dog days of summer. After what has been a tough year for many, time outside with our dogs is just what the doctor ordered.
Whether you’re looking for an entertaining beach-read while your dog romps at the shore, gear picks to get you outside, or expert advice to solve challenging dog behaviour problems, this issue has you covered!
Our expert behaviourists, Nicole Wilde and Teoti Anderson, provide an action plan for tackling home-alone barking and helping a new rescue dog settle in, while our Summer Fun Gear Guide outlines all the best dog gear of the season. Contemplate getting your dog-love inked with our dog tattoo showcase (p 88), laugh at the most perfectly matched lookalike dog-human pairs we’ve ever seen, and find out why every kid needs a dog. We explore the world of pet psychics, take a fascinating dive into cancer sniffing dogs (if your dog keeps sniffing one spot on your body, have it checked!), and publish more reader-submitted Tiny Dog Stories. (Find out how you can get published on page 84.) You’ll also get to know the frequently misunderstood American Staffordshire Terrier and the dapper Scottie dog. Oh, and there are, of course, months of giveaways, super stylish solutions for the dog-friendly home, adorable pups on every page, and so much more. Dive on in!
