Raising great puppies
- Jerrie Wolfe
Jerrie Wolfe is an amazing breeder who allows her dogs the freedom and space to follow their instincts when it comes to bringing up their puppies.
With over thirty years experience of breeding her own dogs, Jerrie has the experience to back up her approach. The puppies she produces are well-balanced and confident, and most importantly they know how to be a dog. They may sound strange, but young dogs need to learn how to read other dogs, how to take correction, and how to deal with dominance.
Puppies need to play with each other, and to learn from older dogs. Jerrie's Cairn Terriers get the opportunity to do all that. They are successful as family pets, and in the show ring.
To find out more about Jerrie and her beautiful dogs visit her Rose Croft website, which includes her article packed with advice on raising pups with great temperaments.
Justice for dogs
- Ann Harpwood
The law as it relates to dogs can seem incredibly complicated - even to some lawyers apparently!
In the UK Ann Harpwood is the woman to turn to if you find yourself in dog-related trouble with the law. Ann founded Justice for Dogs, which is a charity which aims to provide support for dog owners with problems, especially of a legal nature.
Although Ann is based in the UK much of the advice she has for dog owners is relevant wherever you live, such as how a DNA profile could be helpful, and what forms of identification are really effective?
Ann also talks about some of the requests for help she has dealt with.
In the DogCast Radio News, you can hear about dogs behaving badly, dogs going missing, and why smokers are more likely to quit for their dogs' health than their own.
There's the first part of a two-part fiction feature, The Journey, and did you know that you can now get DogCast Radio updates on Twitter?
