    Camper vans, ex-pats and Spanish hounds – The strays of Spain: from road trip to rescue

     
    By Tania Coates & Sam Morris

    What people are saying ...


    "When you combine travelogue and animal rescue you know what’s coming: plenty of passion and panache ... A sobering homage to canine castoffs, the reflective in-the-trenches documentary ranges from unsettling and sobering on one page to powerful and ambitious the next with seldom a standstill moment in between."

    Seattle Kennel Club


    While travelling through Spain in their VW camper van with their rescue dog, Iyela, Tania and Sam come across a stray at the side of the road in a very poor state of health. This is the story of Pedro’s rescue, the situation with regard to animal welfare in Spain (and the British involvement – both positive and negative), and the formation of SOS Animals UK. Compelling case studies are complemented by Tania’s superb, evocative and stirring images.

    This book is a critique of traditional dog training and all the myths surrounding it, prompting the reader to look again at why we do certain things with our dogs. It corrects out-of-date theories on alpha status and dominance training, which have been so prominent over the years, and allows you to consider dog training afresh in order to re-evaluate your relationship with your canine companion, ultimately achieving a partnership based on mutual trust, love and respect.
