Joe Inglis's diet advice
- Joe Inglis
In this our December show, we consider how at a time when most of us are thinking about lovely things to eat, how to make sure that our dogs are eating only lovely things too.
Some ingredients of food are not good for our dogs, yet there are many supplements that can be added to ensure our dogs are as healthy and happy as possible. Joe Inglis is a veterinarian as well as a dog owner, and many of the problems he was seeing in his practice were caused - and solved - by diet. Joe has developed his own dog food, and has recipe books too.
- Renee Premaza
When Renee Premaza adopted troubled Border Collie Jack, she had no idea how extensive and puzzling his problems were. However, despite the fact that he was biting her on a daily basis, Renee remained committed to him and became determined to help him have the best life he could.
She found a trainer and worked tirelessly with him. Her experiences with Jack lead her to qualify as a trainer and now she helps other dog owners get the most out of life with their dogs.
Sadly Jack died far too young, but Renee's work keeps his memory alive, and their story is truly inspirational.
To find out more about Renee visit her Jersey Dog Trainer website. Renee also has a weekly radio show which you can catch up with online. To read a moving and fascinating article about Renee and Jack's journey together read Saving Jack.
