Welcome to A Dog’s Life, the ongoing series on modern dog ownership.
Hosted by broadcaster and dog expert, Anna Webb, A Dog’s Life contends that dogs are companions, guardians, and much much more – they complete us. And they just might save us from ourselves.
She explores all levels of modern dog ownership and brings to life why every dog is extraordinary. The vast array of guests include scientists, vets and experts – people who have and are changing our understanding of dogs – on everything from emotional intelligence to nutrition to behaviour.
A Dog’s Life delves deep into subjects like homeopathy, telepathic communication and the pet food scandal.
It will be thought provoking, alternative, and not a little subversive.
Anna believes all animals, but especially dogs make us human.
She was lucky to grow up with lots of animals around. Her father was the Secretary of the RSPCA Shropshire branch, so she learned about animal cruelty at an early age which has a lasting impact.
She’s passionate about holistic healthcare and studied with the College of Integrated Veterinary Studies (CIVT). Combining her Psychology degree, she offers a holistic view to help dogs and their owners, fusing training and behaviour, therapies, environmental factors and natural nutrition.
The thirteen years she shared with herbeloved Mini Bull Terrier, Molly, best represents my lifelong passion for dogs.
Anna contributes to the only radio show dedicated to dogs in Europe, BBC Radio London’s ‘The Barking Hour’. She contributed weekly to The Titchmarsh show, the Gabby Logan Show, co-authored Barking Blondes – the book, and regularly contributes as a canine spokesperson on national and local radio. Anna is a columnist for a host of canine and health magazines, including My Weekly, Your Dog and Animal Therapy Magazine.
She lives in London with Prudence a young Mini Bull Terrier (successor to Molly), Mr Binks a re-homed English Toy Terrier and Gremlin her rescue street cat who thinks he’s a dog.
