Thanks so much to Jules Nye for joining us last week and answering everyone’s questions on barking. Join us this week on the forum as Nicole Wilde joins us to discuss wolf dog behavior.
This week I’m thrilled to welcome Nicole Wilde to the RBDT boards. For most of you, Nicole probably needs no introduction. She is the author of a number of fantastic books on dog behavior, including one of my favorites, the “bible” of fearful dog information, Help for Your Fearful Dog. Nicole will be joining us this week to discuss a topic covered in two of Nicole’s other books, Wolf Dog Behavior (check out Living with Wolf Dogs and Wolf Dogs A-Z.
