A Dog's Life with Anna Webb

This week Anna is joined by Rick Akers who talks about why he wants Justice For Reggie - a yellow Labrador pup who tragically died only a few days after he was brought home. A victim of the unscrupulous and callous puppy farming trade , little Reggie had short life and a painful death. Rick launched a petition to stop sales of animals online, at least to ensure traceability and accountability.  Discussed in Parliament a month ago, he updates us on progress spearheaded by Government involving DEFRA, advertising standards, and welfare organisations. The question remains: should living sentient beings be bought and sold over the internet?

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.
