This week on DOG TALK®, Tracie Hotchner’s weekly radio show (that’s always available by podcast), Tracie shares a sampling of Tracie’s favorite conversations with Wayne Pacelle, CEO of the Humane Society of the United States, from their weekly pod cast “Humane Talk” on

Topics include:

  • the brutal practice of horse “soring” in the three-and-five gaited horse show world, intentionally causing pain to a horse’s feet to make them step higher
  • the heartwarming tale of an animal shelter created right next to a prison in Louisiana where dogs live with select prisoners who train and ready them for adoption
  • the concept of Meatless Mondays, both for people and pets, to raise awareness of and reduce the environmental impact of meat consumption

DOG TALK® airs Saturdays on NPR 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. Tracie Hotchner is the author of The Dog Bible: Everything Your Dog Wants You to Know and The Cat Bible: Everything Your Cat Expects You to Know.
