Whistle recall training
Wouldn't it be great to have a reliable recall? To have the reassurance that when you recall your dog they'll come back to you, no matter what distractions there are, what the location, or even if your voice is quiet.
The answer is whistle training - as Jemma Milne from Milne and Mutt Dog Training explains. There are many advantages to whistle training, one being that the whistle always sounds the same, whatever mood you're in - or even if someone else is blowing it.
Jemma also talks about why positive dog training methods are the best, and how you can have fun with your dog on walks to build your bond with them. You can find Jemma on Instagram and other social media as @milneandmuttdogtraining

Eco dog harnesses and leads and Pet Identity
Toni Koutu is improving the world for dogs - and helping combat climate change. In this interview Toni talks about his love for his dogs, and what inspired him to create eco dog products. Toni also reveals how his pet identification system protects dog and other pets from theft - and how it allows people who find a lost dog to directly contact the owner, or to check a dog they are buying or adopting is not stolen.
Toni is making dog harnesses, leads and bandanas from marine plastic - plastic taken out of our oceans and put to good use. Combining his love of animals and concerns for the Planet, Toni has partnered with the SEAQUAL INITIATIVE, a unique collaborative community that works with ocean clean-up programmes around the world. To date, Seaqual Initiative has cleaned more than 600 tons of waste from the world’s oceans.
Toni is also improving pets' security via a smartphone app that scans a pet’s eyes in just seconds, and free to millions of cat and dog owners in Europe. The hope is that it will bringing an end to the need for painful microchipping. The revolutionary eye scanner and app software, named ‘My pet identity’™, are being are “the world’s first non-invasive security system for pets”.
