Editor's Notes

December 20, 2018:

We made sure to address a range of food allergies, including recipes with alternative protein sources to which sensitive tummies seem to respond well. Salmon dominates the list, since it has anti-inflammatory properties that are great for dogs in need of healing. But we also added choices that are venison, turkey, and duck-based, as every pup's body responds differently to their meat sources.

A wandering writer who spends as much time on the road as in front of a laptop screen, Brett can either be found hacking away furiously at the keyboard or, perhaps, enjoying a whiskey and coke on some exotic beach, sometimes both simultaneously, usually with a four-legged companion by his side. He has been a professional chef, a dog trainer, and a travel correspondent for a well-known Southeast Asian guidebook. He also holds a business degree and has spent more time than he cares to admit in boring office jobs. He has an odd obsession for playing with the latest gadgets and working on motorcycles and old Jeeps. His expertise, honed over years of experience, is in the areas of computers, electronics, travel gear, pet products, and kitchen, office and automotive equipment.
