Experts in the service dog industry, Jeanne Hampl and Darcie Boltz share their perspective on a family highlighted with Matt Lauer who have a service dog for their small child. Can we expect a young child to know how to properly handle a dog by herself? During the interview the dog showed signs of stress that the general public wouldn't recognize, but had the dog industry ignite - like panting and yawning. This interview brings up a larger topic of service dog welfare that gets lost in the "feel-good" stories, like this, that get ignorantly run in the media all the time. My question is: WHAT ABOUT THE DOG?
Dog training and behavior expert and host, Julie Forbes, talks with a woman about her mini-australian shepherd about his extreme fearful behavior and how to build his confidence. This conversation covers basic dog training, reactive/fearful behavior, and what NOT to do with a fearful dog.

A new listener heard the interview from last week with Dr Donna Kelleher about the little shihtzu with GME who was cured with holistic medicine. Her dog was diagnosed with GME and she has been injected with hope that her dog may not need to die from this disease. Amazing!
All pet lovers have to face the death of their pets, sooner or later. Other people may not understand the loss of a beloved best friend. They may say "it's just a dog," or "it was only a cat, not a child" or even "Get over it already, it was a pet, not a person."
But when we lose an animal, we also lose the companionship, comfort, security and unconditional love of our best friend. This loss of a pet is devasting, as only another pet parent can know. The pain of that loss is very deep and real to the person or persons who considered the dog a member of the family.
The loss can be as emotionally significant as the loss of a close human relative. Loving and kind people care about both humans and animals.
When Is The Time To Get A New Dog?
While an animal companion can never be "replaced" it is important that the people involved are emotionally ready to welcome another companion into the family. In this podcast Judy Helm Wright and Judy Cameron will be discussing the signs and signals that your spirit is ready to invite a new animal into your life.
In a supportive atmosphere we will provide a forum to help you make the decision when the right time is to welcome a new pet, while still honoring the life of the pet you lost.
