New Year's Resolutions
When Andrea Servadio found her own dog was in need of more stimulation, she not only met her own dog's needs, but she set out to provide as many dogs as she could with a happy, interesting life. The result was Fit Dog Club, which offers enrichment to dogs who might otherwise be home alone and bored.
Andrea is passionate about making sure dogs are not left alone or bored. She has numerous ideas on how you can enrich and enhance your dog's life in 2019. New Year is traditionally a time of year to take stock and resole to improve - and with Andrea's suggestions you can easily improve life for your dog. You can find our more at Fit Dog website.

Dare - from rescue dog to Crufts and beyond
Heather Smith and her dogs dance in championship competitions, appear in films and TV shows, and - more importantly - live in harmony together. To see Heather in action with her dogs is to see dog and human in joyful harmony - but when she took on rescue dog Dare, joy didn't seem to be on the agenda.

Gradually, using her years of experience with dogs, and her skills and knowledge as a dog trainer, Heather helped Dare to be able to live a "normal" life. More than that though, it turned out that that shut down little dog relished being in the ring dancing. And so Dare blossomed, dancing with Heather at Crufts. You can read about their journey in the book Heather wrote, Dare's Diary, and to find out more about Heather, visit her website.
DogCast Radio News
In the DogCast Radio News you can hear the stories of the vulnerable UK dog breed which has seen its numbers grow, and in contrast the dog breeds which might be being damaged by their popularity. New research confirms that it's as painful to lose a dog as it is to lose a human family member, and we hear about Sully the Labrador who is finding a new role after the death of his famous owner, George H W Bush. Plus listen to the tales of the dog who escaped and carried out dirty deeds, and dog who was stolen, but not in fact stolen at all.
Happy New Year
As we move into 2019, all of the team at DogCast Radio wish you and your dogs a happy healthy new year.
