“Kerasote traveled the world in search of answers to these questions, and he truly offers the reader a range of expert guidance that will be beneficial for anyone who wants to ensure that their dogs will be healthy and well.” —Seattle Post-Intelligencer
When Ted Kerasote got his new dog Pukka, he found that dog culture had been transformed: dizzying choices of grain-free and raw food, conflicting arguments for and against vaccinations, and battles between positive and dominance trainers. Giving The Omnivore’s Dilemma a canine spin, Kerasote questions the common wisdom to show us how our dogs can have the best and healthiest lives today, no matter where we live. He weaves fascinating science and groundbreaking insight from breeders, vets, and animal advocates into the story of raising Pukka in the Wyoming wilderness. Fascinating and revelatory, Pukka’s Promise “might be the most important book about dogs written in a decade” (Patricia B. McConnell, author of The Other End of the Leash).
“Kerasote takes nothing as gospel and nothing for granted . . . By distilling years of in-depth research on a wide array of canine health topics into a provocative, thought-provoking book, Kerasote has done us all a huge favor.” —The Bark
“Every page bursts with an exceptional fusion of groundbreaking science, eye-opening facts and compassion for our canine companions. I keep going back to it as a trusted source of information and inspiration. This book is such a gift of life to all dogs.” —Judith Samson-French, DVM, founder of Dogs with No Names
