Among the Wolves: Memoirs of a Wolf Handler
‘Among the Wolves’ is an only-one-of-its-kind type of book. Rich in anecdote and information, it has something for everyone who cares about human relationship with the natural world. By writing it Toni Shelbourne has performed a service to wolf-kind everywhere.
This book tells the story of Toni’s life with eleven charismatic wolves at the UK Wolf Conservation Trust, Berkshire, England. Over ten years, she handled, raised, cared for and nursed these amazing creatures, and within these pages you will come to know the characters; laugh at their sense of fun, mourn at their passing – and learn to love them as she does.
Describing some of the best and worst of times, discover what happens behind closed doors when the public goes home, leaving just Toni and the wolves …

Caroline Griffith’s raw feeding seminars
We all know the value of raw feeding but what would you feed if you couldn’t feed raw for practical reasons? Perhaps you travel a lot and cannot always take a portable freezer box or have a freezer handy where you and your dog are staying. Perhaps your dog goes to stay with someone who simply won’t feed the raw food? For any number of reasons there may be occasions your dog is unable to enjoy his usual healthy raw diet, what then? Commercially it has been noticed that many of us raw feeders head for plastic trays foods, with a few other reaching for what they believe is a ‘better’ version of a kibble or a real meat tin. Are they best options? Or simply the options you have heard about. By understanding what it is about raw food that holds the magic healthy zest for life giving qualities you will be in a better position to make decisions in such situations and choose foods as close to those as possible. No doubt you have experienced yourself the magic raw feeding can do but do you actually know what makes it so great? Learn these nutritional and composition differences, between raw and processed foods, on one of my seminars this year. Know exactly what it is about food that provides joy, life and longevity! Touring the UK throughout 2015 to bring a better understanding of pet food and pet health to owners everywhere! Feedback has so far been terrific, you’ll get a certificate and heaps of freebies from ethical pet food companies.
