Topic Two: Janis Bradley talked about her new publication with Gary Patronek and Elizabeth Arps entitled, Saving Normal: A new look at behavioral incompatibilities and dog relinquishment to shelters - National Canine Research Council (summary analysis). We finally have a data-driven answer to the question, "Is there something behaviorally different about shelter dogs" and Janis told us all about it.
• Brent Toellner - My favorite quote from this paper is "Being loved and cherished is not incompatible with having some behaviors or habits owners might prefer dogs not have, if given the choice". Thankfully this also seems transferable for human relationships.
