Pukka and Ted Kerasote have a joyous winter day backcountry skiing near Jackson Hole.
When Ted Kerasote was ready for a new dog after losing his beloved Merle — who died too soon, as all our dogs do — he knew that he would want to give his puppy Pukka the longest life possible. But how to do that? So much has changed in the way we feed, vaccinate, train, and live with our dogs from even a decade ago.
Pukka the inspiration behind and the book as well as the result of Ted Kerasote’s new book Pukka’s Promise The Quest for Longer-Lived Dogs (click for our review) Ted covers topics such as:
Can a purebred be as healthy as a mixed-breed?
How many vaccines are too many?
Should we rethink spaying and neutering?
Is raw food really healthier than kibble?
Should your dog be chewing more bones?
Traveling the world and interviewing breeders, veterinarians, and leaders of the animal-welfare movement, Kerasote pulls together the latest research to help us rethink the everyday choices we make for our companions. One of the reason’s why Ted ultimately chose Pukka as his companion is because helives a very outdoors lifestyle and wanted a dog that would be able to keep up with him. Whether that was out skiing, hunting for their dinner, or on an adventure in a new place he was looking for a dog that would live life to its potential. Check out our review of the just released book Pukka’s Promise: The Quest for Longer-Lived Dogs a book that will leave you thinking about how we care for our dogs.
