Last week I interviewed Jennifer Keene, author of We Can’t Stay Together for the Dogs. She was fascinating to talk to and has written a thoughtful, useful book.
Jennifer is an experienced dog trainer who has personally navigated the potential minefield of divorce. She has some excellent and relevant advice about how couples splitting up can avoid upsetting or unsettling their dogs any more than they have to. There are so many issues involved here; communication can become difficult, and it’s impossible to explain to a dog why his routine is changing.
The interview will be in the next episode of DogCast Radio, due out on the 28th June.
I didn’t like to mention this to Jennifer, but my husband Anthony and I have already come to an agreement about our dogs. He is not quite as enthusiastic about dogs as me, so I have told him straight – if we ever split up he has to keep the dogs.
I think our future is assured.
