children's pages in the Swiss Dogs Magazine (Schweizer Hunde Magazin), in German, 2001-2013

From 2001 until 2013 I was responsible for the children's pages in the Swiss Dogs Magazine (published 9 times a year).
My articles deal with various topics, including for example the dogs' sensory system, rescue dogs, domestication, the theory of evolution, parasites or yawning...and much, much more.

I noticed that grown-ups are also quite interested in reading the Kids Corner. So feel free to join them and browse some samples ;-).

LEXIKON der verhaltenskundlichen kynologischen Begriffe:
series on behavioural terms in the Swiss Dogs Magazine (Schweizer Hunde Magazin), in German, 2001-2005

From 2001 until 2005 I published a series on behavioural terms from A to Z in the Swiss Dogs Magazine. This series was the basis for the dictionary on dog behaviour (see above) and was thoroughly revised, updated and extended for the book version.
