My name is Inge Pauwels, animal behavioural therapist and proud owner of Raico, an American Stafford Terrier, cats, and various chickens, ducks and a pond full of fish. In this book you can follow our adventures, set in a non-chronological order, as seen through my eyes. I have chosen to set them down as separate chapters. You, the reader, can see and make the links for yourself. I have regularly included concrete and useful tips for animal lovers and owners. I hope you will enjoy reading this book but I also hope it will bring you more insight into the world of domesticated animals, animal behaviour, and the work of an animal behavioural therapist and maybe even into my personal world. What I think, feel and say is just my personal opinion and my interpretation of things. It is not set in stone and is susceptible to change. It gives you, the reader, the possibility to see things from a different perspective. Enjoy my book !
