Meet Buckeye! This delightful Llewellin Setter pup is Bark’s newest cover dog—gracing our newest Nov/Dec issue. Initially, an entry to our smiling dog contest, we fell in love with his sweet face and distinctive black-ringed eye, we think you will too. See more photos of Buckeye  and hear his tale of triumph.
Here’s what else the issue has in store for you: choice ideas on ways kids and dogs can spend enriching time together, tips on making sure the baby and the dog’s toy boxes remain separate, behaviorists Karen London interviews a trainer about his work with dogs with high “toy drive” and Patricia McConnell gives us an account of the lessons she has learned from sheepdogs.
Who doesn’t wish for a home away from home when on a vacation? We dig into the newest dog-friendly house-sharing ideas, which may inspire you to pack your bags. We turn the spotlight on an innovative approach to rescue with a story about Unleash Brooklyn, a day care and boarding facility that opens its doors to shelter dogs as well as those with families. And be sure to catch ASPCA president Ed Sayres’ response  to a New Yorker article that seems to excuse buying pet-shop dogs. Plus, some wonderful essays—Jeffrey Essmann’s “coming of dog age” piece on Pug love, and an unforgettable love “letter” from Emily Rapp.
We can’t wait to share our latest issue, so enjoy these exclusive previews!
