Enrichment Implementation for the Real World!

When Emily and Allie wrote Canine Enrichment for the Real World, they had no idea how popular it would become. The feedback they got over and over again – from professionals and pet owners alike – was, “This is great information! Now how do we do it?” It was clear that the most practical next step was to write a companion workbook. In this workbook, you will:

  • Learn about an enrichment framework that was created for zoos, and how we modified it to make it more applicable to the companion animals in your life
  • Get tangible steps to create a descriptive, goal-oriented approach to improving the welfare of the animals in your care
  • Learn how to track your progress to work smarter, not harder
  • See the enrichment framework in action on a real case!

What the experts say about Canine Enrichment:

“Don’t let the word ‘enrichment’ in the title fool you into thinking that the scope of this book is too narrow or not something you will find valuable. It focuses comprehensively on meeting your dog’s needs and is written in a holistic, science-based, practical, straightforward, and easy-to-understand way. I love this book!” – Ken Ramirez, author of Animal Training: Successful Animal Management through Positive Reinforcement

Canine Enrichment is a deep dive into what dogs really need and how we can provide it. It’s a great book for dog lovers who want to go beyond the standard superficialities of ‘dogs need exercise’. Just the chapter on agency is worth the price of the book!” – Patricia McConnell, Ph.D., CAAB Emeritus, author of The Other End of the Leash and The Education of Will

“The scope of this book is ambitious and the authors deliver, navigating the subject of enrichment with depth and relevance. Caregivers will gain critically important perspectives and practical information to improve the lives of their animals.” – Susan G. Friedman, Ph.D., Professor Emeritus, Utah State University, and founder of Behavior Works, LLC
