Gabby Kuehn, founder of PAAW (Pets Are Always Welcome House) joins Anna to discuss the landmark ’second reading’ of Jasmine’s Law, which due to Covid restrictions took place as a parliamentary webinar. Gabby joined Anna as one of the expert speakers at the event, which wasn’t recorded in line with government rules. Taking this opportunity to reflect on the event and summarise what happened, and who said what, the conversation underlines the resounding view: that NO Pet clauses are indeed unfair, outdated and discriminatory. And at odds with socio-economic trends where pets are considered as family in an age of the pandemic that will see more of us working from home, benefitting from the companionship and lifeline that is a dog. And we mustn’t exclude cats!

What is A Dog's Life with Anna Webb?
They’re companions, guardians, and much much more – they complete us. And they just might save us from ourselves.
Anna Webb explores all levels of modern dog ownership and brings to life why every dog is extraordinary.
She speaks to scientists and experts - people who have and are changing our understanding of dogs - on everything from emotional intelligence to nutrition to behaviour, delving deep into subjects like homeopathy, telepathic communication and the pet food scandal.
It's thought provoking, alternative, and not a little subversive.
