Animal behaviourist and vet Dr Kendal Shepherd deciphers dog behaviour for veterinary professionals in new book

Book aims to assist vet surgeons and nurses in understanding their canine clients, improving the clinic experience for staff, pets, and pet owners alike

A new book by clinical animal behaviourist and veterinary surgeon Dr. Kendal Shepherd aims to offer a unique insight into dog behaviour for veterinary professionals. Demystifying Dog Behaviour for the Veterinarian, released Monday 12 April 2021, is a one-of-a-kind manual specifically aimed at those working in the veterinary field, and is also a valuable resource for anyone interested in dog behaviour.

Shepherd says “This book is the culmination of the journey to my current understanding of dogs, from my early veterinary experiences, through working as a behaviour counsellor, to acting as a legal expert witness. It explains how the Ladder of Aggression came about; a vital concept in debunking the ‘dominant’ and ‘guilty’ dog myth.”

Dr Kendal Shepherd is an acclaimed, UK-based veterinary surgeon and clinical animal behaviourist. She has over 40 years’ experience as a vet, clinical animal behaviour consultant, and expert legal witness.

More information about Demystifying Dog Behaviour for the Veterinarian can be found at the website. It is also available to purchase from Amazon and all major online bookstores. Demystifying Dog Behaviour for the Veterinarian is published by CRC Press.
