Talk to your vet about whether it might be a great option for your pet. Or just talk to your vet. Ask them how they are going. What they had for dinner last night. Whether they like kittens. Of course they’d like kittens…

Robbie this week shares the email he received for a semi major role in a new animated feature film, and having a run at the Two Bays Trail Run, and then his Mum’s 60th Birthday, where his dad just about got into an Alpaca incident. Then, it is time to go back to Lewis’s wheel house and get stuck right into a second week of…

DOMINANCE!

Are dogs pack animals?

Why is punishment not useful?

Why won’t dog’s come when called?

Growling on the bed?

Stealing objects?

Aggressive Puppies at the vet?

Pulling on the lead?

Aggression around the food bowl?

Feeding the people before the dog?

Walking through doorways first?

Should nurses try and hide the chocolates from the vets? (Or at least from Robbie?)

Food Guarding & Aggression, Diabetes – Part 1, Daytime Podcasting Fun! – Episode 14



With the Podcave basking in the tender glow of the winter afternoon sun, Lewis and Robbie meet up for some sneaky Saturday Podcast Action.

With Lewis avoiding having to go shoe shopping after surgery on his washing machine, and Robbie coming in from a busy Saturday morning consulting, we get into some fun times about dogs eating fish hooks, Lewis’s Cat Olive getting ready for her teeth to get cleaned, and a new friend of the show, Flowers Across Sydney , has joined the fight with protecting cats against lillies (check their blog HERE). We also have a the latest Megaoesophagus Update from the AVA.

Into the Meaty middle of the pod, Lewis has some great information and tips on Food Guarding and Aggression in dogs (including where he hides while trying to eat a Magnum to stop anyone taking it from him), while Robbie starts part one of Diabetes in Dogs and Cats – what is it, what signs you see, and how it’s diagnosed.

Also Lewis brings up Robbie’s sly day time Go-Karting escapades – it was all for a good cause…
