This week’s DOG TALK® radio show features a variety of guests as Tracie Hotchner talks with:
- Betsey McFarland: The Senior Vice President for Companion Animals at the Humane Society of the United States recounts the extraordinary rescue mission undertaken to airlift a colony of feral cats off San Nicolas Island — and the sanctuary where they are now housed, including a webcam to watch them.
- Karen Shanor: The author of BATS SING, MICE GIGGLE: The Surprising Science of Animals’ Inner Lives discusses what we can learn from animals (especially the importance of play and naps!)
- Allison Denlea: The Official Dog Trainer of DOG TALK®, Allison Denlea of Paws4Positive Training, explains to Tracie why her youngest dog Teddy has learned bad attitudes from her older, more neurotic dogs — and how daily obedience “homework” can get him back in balance, and how anyone in any multi-dog household is at risk for this occurrence.
DOG TALK® airs Saturdays on NPR (or anytime via podcast). It 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.
