Mark Vette and Mike White in conversation with Louise Ward.

Aotearoa is home to more than half a million registered dogs; that’s a lot of owners making connections with other dog walkers and trying desperately to get pooch to behave.

Mark Vette’s books 'Dog Zen' and 'Puppy Zen' have helped many dog owners to create a harmonious bond with their pup whilst raising an animal that can be trusted in any situation. Mike White’s experiences of pottering around Wellington with his SPCA rescue huntaway, Cooper, are chronicled in his book 'How to Walk a Dog' – there’s much more to it than exercise and toileting.

Join Mark and Mike as they delve into the canine-human connection and celebrate the joys of parenting a pup. Mark Vette is a world-renowned animal behaviourist, zoologist and trainer. Mike White is an award-winning journalist.

Workshop Offering: Short and sweet - an introduction to the art of short-form journalism - Mike White, Friday 16 October 3:30pm, $30, places limited. Book separately on the website.

In conjunction with The Hawkes Bay Readers and Writers Festival
