The Dog News Show - with Debbie Connolly and Julie Hill

There's a brand new dog podcast for you to listen to, it's called The Dog News Show and the first episode is out now. The show is presented by Debbie Connolly (SafePets UK, Dog Borstal) and Julie Hill (DogCast Radio) - which of course is me! Each week we will be discussing dog related news stories - and as it says on the website, expect debate with humour. We have opinions and we're not afraid to share them. There are so many things going on in the dog world at the moment, in the UK, the USA and internationally, so if you'd like to hear them considered with a healthy dose of common sense and more than a dash of irreverence, The Dog News Show is for you.
The first show features discussion of the dog attack that saw five police officers end up in hospital, the correct dog poo bag etiquette, the training that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are giving their young Spaniel Lupo, plus a warning from the Pet Education Trust about leaving a legacy for your pet's protection, and so much more. You can listen to the podcast at the site, download it from the site, or subscribe to it on iTunes.
However you choose to access the show we'd love to know what you think of it, and if you spot a news story you think would interest us, let us know. The Dog News Show has a twitter feed - @DogNewsShow - and a Facebook page, or you can email or
Take care,
Julie xx
