JULES HOWARD – on how the science of dogs changed the science of life!
What do dogs really think of us? What do dogs know and understand of the world? Do their emotions feel like ours? Do they love like we do?
Jules Howard is a UK-based wildlife expert, zoologist, science-writer, and broadcaster, who has appeared on the BBC’s Springwatch and Breakfast shows. He is the author of four non-fiction books, including Sex on Earth and Death on Earth. His latest book, Wonderdog, tells the story of how our canine friends changed the way we think about animals, how we learnt what dogs are capable of, and where we, as a pair of species, go from here.
