From the back cover:

“How do you give your animal the best life? What does an animal need to be happy?

In this new book, Temple Grandin, author of the best-selling Animals in Translation, builds on almost thirty years of research, experimentation, and experience to show how we can give our animals the best and happiest lives – on their terms, not ours.

Whether it’s how to make the healthiest environment for the dog you have to leave alone most of the day, how to keep pigs from being bored, or how to know if the lion pacing in the zoo is miserable or just exercising, Grandin teaches us to challenge our assumptions about animal contentment and honor our bond with our fellow creatures.

This is essential reading for anyone who’s every owned, cared for, or simply cared about an animal.

‘This book is much more than a simple primer. Species by species, insight by insight, it builds into something kind of momentous.’ ~ Boston Globe

‘A practical, species-by-species guide to making animals happier.’ ~ Time”
