Ira Moss, General Manager of London based rescue charity, All Dogs Matter, joins Anna to discuss the impact of the pandemic on the charity. Talking about the holistic picture that’s impacting negatively on dogs. From impulse buying online to a lack of understanding about dogs, the trends for flat faced breeds like Frenchies who despite their cute looks are deceptively stubborn and often complicated as a Bull Breed. Why new owners through the pandemic having paid extortionate prices for puppies are opting to re sell dogs online to re-coup some costs, rather than bring them into rescue. The dreadful effect on dogs being shoved from pillar to post without informed knowledge or care for the dog’s future. How this attitude could change the face of rescue in the UK, with massive consequences to dogs.
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.
