In this episode, we discuss a new law being introduced in Germany, a Finnish study on fearfulness in dogs, the most bizarre Letterbox question we could have ever imagined, an English company putting their own unique spin on canine nutrition, and we celebrate yet another truly remarkable Wagtastic Woof.
How much exercise is appropriate for your dog? We consider a new German law that proposes a mandated minimum activity for the country's 9 million-plus canine population. Is it a great leap forward or simply another example of bureaucratic idiocy?
In keeping with our health theme, we examine a new study that has found some surprising links between canine anxiety and lifestyle. Can a puppy's life chances be influenced by its formative experiences? And does your dog's breed have any bearing on its mental health?
Our Letterbox features a question that we never expected to receive. Our dog nerd was severely tested!
In Gadgets, Gizmos, and Gastronomy we take a look at the sometimes perplexing world of canine nutrition. One English manufacturer, that has recently expanded, has caught our eye with its rather unorthodox approach.
And finally, this episode's Wagtastic Woof is an utterly remarkable example of a canine carer. Tune in to find out more.
