They’re companions, guardians, and much much more – they complete us. And they just might save us from ourselves.

Dogs.

They’re companions, guardians, and much much more – they complete us. And they just might save us from ourselves.

Anna Webb explores all levels of modern dog ownership and brings to life why every dog is extraordinary.

She speaks to scientists and experts - people who have and are changing our understanding of dogs - on everything from emotional intelligence to nutrition to behaviour, delving deep into subjects like homeopathy, telepathic communication and the pet food scandal.

It's thought provoking, alternative, and not a little subversive.

It will also allow you to only worm your dog when a worm count test comes back with a positive result. Choose between a worm egg count, a lungworm count or their combo worm and lungworm count tests.

The Incredible Kratu! This week Anna is joined by Tess Eagle-Swan talking about her book Incredible Kratu, a Carpathion/Mioritic Shepherd cross puppy who captured Tess’s heart from a photo on Facebook. This was at a point when Tess needed to change her life. Wanting to escape the rut of London life that was spiraling out of control, Kratu offered the solution as Tess’s salvation. The book is the story of soul mates brought together by chance. The story of a pup born in a Roma Camp in Transylvania who has gone on to become an International canine treasure. As a trained assistance and therapy dog he has brought joy to millions through his antics. But the role he’s played in Tess’s life is compelling. Tess has discovered how to love and trust again through Kratu as he opened her world to new horizons, leaving behind her troubled beginnings.

Dog Friendly Restaurants This week Anna is joined by Martin Williams, the founder of London’s premier steak houses, M Restaurant and Gaucho. He chats about why he wanted to open his restaurant’s doors to dogs at a time when the concept of ‘Dog Friendly’ hadn’t reached the mainstream. Proud of his decision to incorporate special ‘six-leg’ menus and events for dogs and their people to enjoy, the space at the Victoria flagship restaurant lends itself perfectly being so spacious, it can easily accommodate a Christmas party of rover 80 Guide Dogs - just one of many events he’s hosted in aid of charity, and offering great fun for all alike. He explains why it is not ‘illegal’ to invite dogs into a restaurant, so long as common sense prevails and there’s space to offer those not dog friendly to also feel relaxed. He also chats about his Labradoodle, Hudson, who left his legacy on the restaurant, always remembered through some artworks, and branding as being Martin’s inspiration to be so #DogFriendly. His young Labradoodle, named Wilbur and Mr Binks enjoyed meeting and recording in person too!M Restaurant Instagram: @mrestaurantsThank you to Pawable for their support and get 10% off your first order of collagen for your dog with the promo code ADOGSLIFE10.

Dogs in Yellow This week Anna is joined by Sarah Jones who rescued Bella eight years ago and soon discovered Bella was very nervous and reacted when her space was invaded by other people and dogs. Realising that the majority of dogs display some sort of anxiety, and are reluctant to socialsie with unknown doggies,  Sarah devised a range of yellow leads, collars, bandanas jackets in yellow , which is the colour recognised to highlight that your dog needs some space. Understanding that thousands of dogs suffer with being reticent about being approached, Sarah launched #DogsInYellow a dedicated day to celebrate nervous dogs, and celebrate their differences, rather than be misunderstood. So the range of yellow accessories continues to expand. It’s the Yellow army.

Collagen for dogs! This week Anna is joined by Dale Nash from Pawable who chats about a new Collar-gen that’s been launched for dogs. From the makers of a human collagen called So Body Co, the Collar-gen for dogs was inspired as customers would ask if they could give the human brand to their dogs. Being passionate about preventative care, and prolonging longevity, Anna couldn’t wait to find out more about this product, and discuss the benefits of Collagen as a supplement. As a structural protein, it's known for helping joint health, but also as being a structural element of all our cells. It helps with cellular energy, processes, immune responses, cellular communication , and processes for tissue maintenance, especially in the intestinal wall. We chat about why to add collagen to your dog’s diet helps dogs especially those on processed diets, but also allows to know your dog is taking a bio available source of collagen.Find out more about Pawable here and follow them on Instagram @pawable, Twitter @pawable and FacebookFor more about Anna go to annawebb.co.ukMusic and production by Mike Hanson for Pod People ProductionsCover art by JaijoCover photo by Rhian Ap Gruffydd at Gruff PawtraitsTo advertise on or sponsor A Dog's Life email: info@theloniouspunkproductions.com

Wagit! This week Anna is joined by Nadia Leguel founder of Wagit, championing dog friendly, Nadia is bringing her vision to  making it easy to find pubs, cafes, restaurants that are genuinely dog friendly. The app, which also includes, groomers, pet boutiques, and more is designed with modern pet parents in mind. Wanting to take their pooches with them when out socialising, Wagit makes this so easy with hundreds of tested venues listed. Nadia and her Cavalier King Charles Spaniel have spent months checking out places, being tipped off about new venues joining the dog friendly revolution. We chat about her Cavalier, Lola, and why she inspired Nadia to take the plunge and set up Wagit to help other like herself. We talk about her appearance of BBC’s Dragon’s Den, how despite not receiving investment, the exposure created a wave of interest. Also we talk about Nadia’s experience working at the famous ‘Open Table’ which gave her the experience to set up Wagit. Based on the same principle to book in advance, read reviews simply with a couple of clicks, it sets Wagit apart as a must have platform for discerning pawrents in London and beyond! Find a dog friendly place on wagit.uk or Facebook or follow on Instagram @wagit.ukFor more about Anna go to annawebb.co.ukMusic and production by Mike Hanson for Pod People ProductionsCover art by JaijoCover photo by Rhian Ap Gruffydd at Gruff PawtraitsTo advertise on or sponsor A Dog's Life email: info@theloniouspunkproductions.com
