DOG TALK® and Ruff Wear

Well, as our friends over on Facebook already know, this has been a crazy week around here because my computer has been in the shop for FIVE days. During that time, we missed our usual announcement of who would be coming up on this week’s DOG TALK®, the weekly radio show by author and dog expert Tracie Hotchner.

But did you know that it’s never too late to listen to one of Tracie’s shows? Although DOG TALK® airs Saturdays on NPR, you can listen anytime via podcast)!

On last week’s show, Tracie talked with:

  • Patrick Kruse, the brains behind Ruff Wear — outdoor gear for dogs, a company and products Tracie has long-admired for their functionality with active dogs in the real world. Patrick talked about the Omnijore system Ruff Wear has developed that allows any dog to pull someone in a remarkable array of settings (see product description below)
  • Carol Quinn about her book FOLLOW MY LEAD: What Training My Dogs Taught Me About Life, Love and Happiness, a terrific blend of personal and universal truths about how we love and learn and what our dogs contribute to that process
  • Dr. Donna Spector, the Official Second Opinion Vet of the show, about how she gets to the bottom of tricky cases, like the badness on mini-Dachshund Huckleberry.

Last week’s show also featured a very interesting product, the Omnijure™ Joring System from Ruff Wear. Ruff Wear’s new Omnijore™ Joring System is ideal for any dog-pulling activity including skijoring, mountainboard-joring, skatejoring, bikejoring, or canicross. Now outdoor enthusiasts and their dogs can enjoy joring all year long in any climate conditions. The canine-specific design was engineered to comfortably utilize dog pulling action. The complete joring system features a dog harness, human hipbelt, and towline.

DOG TALK® is broadcast live on Saturdays at 11 AM in Southampton NY and LIVE at 1 PM Sundays on Robinhood radio in the Berkshires. This is one of two radio shows by pet author and canine nutrition expert Tracie Hotchner, who also hosts CAT CHAT® every Wednesday on Martha Stewart Living Radio on Sirius/XM Satellite.
