Dr John Bradshaw was formerly Reader in Companion Animal Behaviourat the University of Bristol, studying the ways in which dogs and cats interact with their owners. Since 2009 his focus has been on the dissemination of animal welfare science to pet owners: his books Dog Sense/In Defence of Dogs and Cat Sense (Basic Books/Penguin) were non-fiction bestsellers in both the USA and UK, and have been translated into more than a dozen other languages. His television appearances have included six episodes of Horizon for BBC2, and Dogs: Their Secret Lives for Channel 4. Recent honours include the 2014 BSAS/RSPCA award for contributions to animal welfare, and the 2015 Wooldridge Medal conferred by the British Veterinary Association.
Most recently, his two books for children, Dogs: Understanding Your Very Best Friend and Cats: Understanding Your Whiskered Friend, were published by Andersen Press.
