Helping Minds Meet

by Daniel Mills and Helen Zulch

Dogs have shared our lives for thousands of years - to the benefit of both species. However, it's only relatively recently that dogs, in many societies, have lived primarily as companions within the heart of the home. This close relationship, together with society's expectations of dogs, can pose problems. All relationships have challenges, and where individuals of different species live closely together, these can be magnified, and misunderstandings occur. These can lead to fractures in the family/dog relationship, and, in some cases, result in dogs developing behaviours that are problematic for us. This unique book, written by professionals in the field, explains how and why many of these misunderstandings occur, and how we can work to resolve them. It aims to help us adjust the way we interact with our dogs, in order to help our dogs be well behaved, whilst at the same time enabling us to enjoy fulfilling relationships and a good quality of life with them. Especially commissioned images illustrate the text, and worksheets are provided to help owners focus on the areas where their dog and situation can benefit from applying the suggestions made.

Daniel Mills

Daniel Mills is an internationally recognised veterinary behaviour specialist and Professor in Veterinary Behavioural Medicine at the University of Lincoln, UK. He initially worked in the animal charity sector, developing his interest in problem prevention, before moving into academia about 20 years ago.

After completing his PhD, Daniel became the first person to be recognised by the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons as a Specialist in Veterinary Behavioural Medicine, and was subsequently recognised by the European College and Association for the Study of Animal Behaviour. His main areas of research focus around the biological basis of problem behaviour and the recognition of emotional states in animals, which has led to the development and promotion of a number of novel approaches to managing problem behaviour.

Helen Zulch

Helen Zulch is a veterinarian who qualified in South Africa, and has since worked in a number of areas of veterinary science. She developed an interest in animal behaviour and has consulted and lectured in the field for over ten years, moving to the University of Lincoln, England, to continue her career.

Helen’s main interests and areas of research include prevention of behaviour problems through appropriate early life experiences, the application of scientific principles in animal training, interaction between health and behaviour, communication in animals, and olfaction in dogs. She has owned and trained dogs all her adult life. Helen is currently programme leader of the MSc in Clinical Animal Behaviour at the University of Lincoln.
