Issue 15: Summer 2001
We are heading into the summer of 2001 in grand style with two special features. One is a review of places to travel with a water-loving dog. As we learn, even Pugs love a day on the beach. We also explore the meaning behind the well-worn phrase “dogs as members of the family.” Through personal insights by authors such as Ann Patchett, Carolyn Heilbrun and Deborah Digges we come away with an...

Great recipes, wellness/training tips, good reads and smiling dogs.
Welcome to another new issue of The Bark. In this issue we do a special investigation about the record number of recent pet food recalls—many top brands made in the USA have been affected. Can we expect to see more? What to do if your favorite food is recalled? We will continue to track this subject closely, and will be posting recall notices here too.

Spring 2013: Issue 73
We kick off 2013 by putting the lid on winter and leaping into spring with zest.

Bark 72: Nov/Dec 2012
Our Winter issue has a lot of good reading in store for you. You will be delighted to see that Patricia McConnell is back to untangle another tricky topic—what it takes to be a therapy dog. Many of us might think our dogs would be perfect nursing-home visitors, but Trisha provides a reality check, telling us just what is expected of dogs who do this work, and why many don’t make the grade. Sheila...

Sept/Oct 2012
Our September issue, reflecting that special “back-to-school” time of year, focuses on dog studies. We survey the schools that are putting canine subjects into their syllabi, so students have a chance to really learn about dogs in a variety of new courses. Then, to one of the dog-world’s most debated and least understood subjects: dominance. Karen London thinks that a discussion of this issue can...

Issue 69: Mar/Apr/May 2012
We bring you a spring issue filled with another wondrous array of articles, essays and art. To start, we offer a canine-behavior trifecta. Karen London dissects the controversy over the term “prey drive.” Does it increase our understanding of dog behavior, or—similar to the “alpha dog” notion—does it merely lead to more misunderstandings? In “Dog Smart,” Julia Hecht gives an overview of current...
