This week on Tracie Hotchner’s weekly DOG TALK® radio show and podcast:

  • Melissa Crichton is an experienced dog trainer and licensed psychotherapist in the Metropolitan Denver area ( She focuses on dog behavioral problems around anxiety issues, with both dogs and family members since human anxiety can be triggered by—and also worsen—canine anxiety. She discusses the exceptional results she’s had with the Anxiety Wrap, which Tracie uses on Scooby Doo for thunderstorm fear.
  • Caroline Golon of , discusses how to get cats comfortable with carriers (for travel, vet visits and emergencies) and recommends tossing Whole Life Pet treats into the very cat-popular Sturdi carriers, and playing with a Neko Flies in the carrier, too.
  • Lucy Postins of The Honest Kitchen tells how she came to develop a wonderful new pet chew from pure dried Icelandic catfish skins: called BEAMS, they are driving Tracie’s dogs berserk with anticipation of their after dinner chew!

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.
