The Dog Merchants-3DToday is an amazing day: The Washington Post has published its review of The Dog Merchants book and website. My favorite parts:

“The Dog Merchants [is] a sprawling, and sometimes fascinating, look at a complex industry. Her reporting reveals that by simply finding a dog to take home we are dipping into a world largely veiled to the consumer and in many ways ethically dubious. …

“Kavin is doing her part. With the release of the book, she’s starting a website of the same name that will let consumers register and post reviews of any breeder or rescue group, sort of a Yelp for dog buyers. If it shines some light on the shadowy, largely unregulated dog industry, I’d say that’s worth five stars.”
