This is our (almost) weekly segment where we review the content posted on our Twitter over the course of the week. It’s a long post! So make sure you grab a coffee and prepare yourself for some serious reading.
The Tweet of the Week
Overtime, I have occasionally posted podcasts from Generation Anthropocene. They are not dog podcasts, but mostly cover environmental issues, hence why they aren’t shared extensively on this blog. However, a recent podcast made me think about the dog world: Balance of Evidence revisted. While this podcast talks about evidence in climate change, I couldn’t help but think the same ideas apply to so many dog issues: Breed specific legislation, no kill sheltering, desexing. As such, I really suggest listening to this podcast. I also tweeted another podcast from Generation Anthropocene this week: The Dawn of De-extinction.

This is talking about how changing your own body language changes who you are. I listened and wondered parralelles: Could dogs be calmer if we trained them to exhibit calm behaviours? Watch the video here: Amy Cuddy: Your body language shapes who you are.
