Sue London, the Canadian Dog Whisperer, had major health problems that nearly resulted in her death, but the love of her Shih Tzu Rocky pulled her through, and now she wants to offer that healing to others. Schutzhund is a fascinating and demanding dog sport which host Julie was lucky enough to participate in - how did she enjoy getting up close and personal with a German Shepherd? In the DogCast Radio News hear about the growing problem of dog obesity - and is there a connection to the increasing variety of dog food on offer? Plus did you know next month is National Dog Adoption Month? All this and more!
