If you are a pet lover, you’ve probably run into questions like “Why has my cat suddenly stopped using the litter box?” “Why is my dog barking incessantly?” “Why doesn’t my dog or cat listen to me when I ask him to do something?” Pet owners want to know how to communicate effectively with their pets and understand their individual wants and needs. They also want to share their wants and needs with their pets. If only we could talk to them like we talk to each other. Tim Link demonstrates in his new book how to effectively communicate with animals.

Pet paralysis is a difficult, scary thing to contemplate and when it happens to your dog or cat there are few good resources available to offer hope and help. Thankfully, there's Sharon Seltzer, creator of the blog Lessons from a Paralyzed Dog and we are happy to bring her to Tripawd Talk Radio on Sunday October 12 at 6pm Eastern / 3pm Pacific.
Sharon is an animal rights writer and co-founder of Heaven Can Wait Animal Society. When her 10-year old dog Sophie gradually became weaker and then lost all use of her limbs, Sharon was at a loss for what to do. Several specialists, rehab therapists and treatments yielded little to no success to help Sophie walk again; that's when Sharon's pack began a new normal way of life and learned how to make the best of Sophie’s disability.
Sharon will discuss how she coped with Sophie's paralysis and the tips, tricks and successes that this special dog taught her. We will be taking your calls too. Please join us on this informative episode of Tripawd Talk Radio!
