Canine Compulsive Disorder
You've almost certainly heard of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, but did you know that there is such a thing as Canine Compulsive Disorder? It's a condition that can cause acute distress to both dog and owner, but it can be tricky to diagnose. In this interview, Toni talks about what CCD is, how other conditions can be ruled out, and how dogs with the condition can be helped.
Toni has a great website with lots of information and resources, and her Help My Dog series of books offers help on specific subjects. You can hear her advice on fireworks phobias in Episode 161 of DogCast Radio. You can hear Toni talk about wolves here, and here and about Tellington Touch here.

What kind of tasks is Laura asked to do - and are any of those upper class canines "snobby"?
