Meredith Corp. and Fear Free LLC, a veterinary, pet professional and pet owner education company, have partnered to introduce Happy Paws magazine. Written by veterinary and pet professional experts, including board-certified veterinary behaviorists, Happy Paws will assist pet owners in providing their pets with the physical and emotional care they need to live happier, healthier and fuller lives. The new publication can be fetched now through Meredith's Magazine Store and will be available on newsstands nationwide beginning April 9. Pet ownership, particularly dogs, is on the rise in the U.S., with nearly 60 percent of all U.S. households owning one or more dogs, according to the 2017/2018 Pet Ownership and Demographic Sourcebook. That's the highest rate of dog ownership since the American Veterinary Medical Foundation began measuring it in 1982.
