Having a dog that is responsible, and respectful, and spoiled rotten is my goal. Because otherwise, why have them?

 - Jill Breitner

Jill Breitner is used to settling potential service and therapy dogs, and companion dogs - in fact pups of all ages - into her home. She knows that there's more to a puppy pile than cute, and she wants to share that knowledge, because it will help puppies, and older dogs, settle into their new homes. Her approach to raising a dog is warm and refreshing, and it's great to be told by an experienced expert that you can follow your nurturing instincts.

One of the important things Jill advises is to let your dog sleep in the bed with you. Want to know more? Listen to this fascinating interview! If you've let your dog share your bed, let us know.
