Animal expert explains dogs’ thinking

By
From page A5 | April 16, 2014 |

“How to Think Like a Dog” is the title of a presentation Friday, April 18, at the Stephens Branch Library by Sophia Yin, a veterinarian, animal behaviorist and author. She and her Family Fido dog class instructors will speak from 6 to 9 p.m. at the library, 315 E. 14th St.

The Family Fido pre-class dog talk is a fast-paced, game-show workshop that is designed to prepare participants for developing a great relationship with their dog. The talk is free and open to the public. It is the pre-class for Dr. Yin’s “Family Fido: Training People and Their Pooches” course. One does not have to be registered in the Family Fido class to attend the pre-class.

Yin is the author of many books, including “Perfect Puppy in 7 Days,” “How to Behave So Your Dog Behaves” and “Low Stress Handling, Restraint and Behavior Modification of Dogs & Cats.” She makes behavior house calls and lectures and teaches workshops on animal behavior, training and low-stress pet handling in the United States and internationally.

She writes for a number of veterinary and popular magazines, and for five years was the award-winning pet columnist for the San Francisco Chronicle. She has consulted for several zoos and served as a behavior expert for TV shows such as Animal Planet’s “Dogs 101.”

Yin’s mission in life is to improve our understanding of animals and their behavior so that we can care for, appreciate and enjoy our time with them better. Learn more at her animal behavior website, www.drsophiayin.com.

The event is free and will take place in the Blanchard Room, which is accessible to people with disabilities. No reservations are required. For more information, contact Joan Tuss at joan.tuss@yolocounty.org.
