Program Description

Event Details

We find our canine companions lovable and entertaining, but also intriguing. Many of us have wondered what drives them to bark, sniff, and play. What goes on in their canine minds? Please join us for an enlightening conversation with Alexandra Horowitz, dog researcher and author of "The Year of the Puppy: How Dogs Become Themselves." as she shares her knowledge and insights about our furry friends. 

More About Year of the Puppy: Few of us meet our dogs at Day One. The dog who will become our best friend and integral part of our family and is born without us into a family of his or her own. A puppy’s critical early development is usually missed entirely. Dog researcher Alexandra Horowitz aimed to change that with her family’s new pup, Quiddity (Quid). In this scientific memoir, she charts Quid’s growth and delightful development from birth to her first birthday.

Elm Street Books will be onsite to sell copies of Year of the Puppy.
