Over 150,000 dogs are rehomed every year in Britain alone: a wonderful experience for both dog and owner but nevertheless a very demanding one. Gwen Bailey ensures that excitement, rather than anxiety, accompanies the transition. 160 pages with over 150 specially commissioned colour photographs Gwen Bailey is the Animal Behaviourist for the Blue Cross, Britain's largest animal welfare charity.
Gwen worked for a leading UK national animal welfare charity from 1988-2002 and pioneered the use of dog behaviour knowledge in the rehoming of unwanted animals.
She was the first person to be appointed by a national animal welfare charity as a full time Animal Behaviourist, eventually heading a team of behaviourists.
Gwen has successfully solved behaviour problems in thousands of rehomed dogs, helping to prevent dogs with behavioural problems being passed from home to home and improving the rehoming success rate.
Gwen lectures at national and international conferences, runs training courses for staff at animal charities around the world and has written many books & education leaflets. She is a Trustee for Battersea Dogs and Cats Home.
