Citizen Canine Dogs In The Movies
Wendy Mitchell wrote about films for years, and was always drawn to the doggy stars, but it was her love of dogs, coupled with a meeting with a descendant of one of the most iconic dog actors which sparked off a whole new project. In Citizen Canine Dogs in the Movies, Wendy affectionately explores dogs in films - and the behind the scenes stories too.

In this interview you can hear about dogs such as Toto in the Wizard of Oz, Puffy in There's Something About Mary, Marley and me, Lassie and many, many more. What tricks do trainers use to get the dogs to interact with the actors? You can find out more about Wendy and her book at her Film Wendy website.
Fear of the vet
If your dog is afraid of the dog, taking them for any treatment can be nightmare - for them and you. But it doesn't have to be like that. Even if your dog has already decided the vet is scary, you can teach them otherwise - with patience and positivity.
As well as being a animal behaviour trainer, Karen has helped her own dog overcome fear of the vet, so she understands the problem on a personal level as well as professional.

The help is out there for you to support your dog become much happier going to the vet. And as Karen points out, it's all about kindness, and letting your dog choose. Another key thing is to treat it like a game - don't stress!
