Fall is one of my very favourite seasons—I love crisp morning walks crunching through fallen leaves with my dog Penny (have you noticed how most dogs seem friskier and more playful now that cooler weather is upon us?). I also love the general renewed sense of purpose that comes with more structured days, followed by evening snuggle-times in front of the fireplace. So to make the most of this marvellous season, we’ve put together an issue packed full of finds and ideas to help in all of those pursuits! We’ve got delish, healthy dog treats you can whip up at home (p 42) as well as tips to prevent separation anxiety (p 114)—the back to work/school transition can be tough on dogs after a summer of togetherness, so we’re here to help! We also interviewed top neuroscientists and canine cognition experts to better understand how dogs think and what emotions they experience (p 44), rounded up the best toys for every type of dog (p 98), and even highlight chain restaurants with secret dog menus so you can take your dog out for a fun snack! And that’s not all—from décor solutions to great reads to fun candid snaps of celebs and their dogs, we’ve got you covered on all fronts. Have a wonderful fall season!
