Canis bonus: Laure-Anne Visele

I run Canis bonus, a behaviour therapy  practice for dogs with behaviour problems. I am also the co-founder and head trainer at OhMyDog! (dog training school in The Hague). I graduated in Zoology, and am a licensed dog trainer and certified applied animal behaviourist. After my day job, I review dog books and write about behaviour for my blog and other specialist websites.

If you are near The Hague and have dog behaviour issues, drop me a line to make an appointment. I work in English, French, or Dutch and only use animal-friendly methods. You can find out more on my training page.

Dogs bite: but balloons and slippers are more dangerous

Janis Bradley has achieved the holy grail of non-fiction: writing about statistics, yet compelling the readers. And Janis Bradley isn’t just about punchy writing: she demonstrated some gargantuan background research work.

The book is as unsettling as it is reassuring.  On the one hand, it points at the abyss of misinformation that is bite epidemiology; on the other hand, we get to relax about dog bites.

A great read, and one I would advise every dog professional to sink their teeth into.
