A Dog's Life with Anna Webb

This week Anna is joined by dog Behaviourist, Karin Lee, who talks about her working Bloodhounds who have helped the police with man-trailing and tracking down people, a bit like in the movies. We chat about the Bloodhound as one of the oldest breeds, and their superior olfaction which has been deployed over the centuries. Bloodhounds were used in the search for Jack the Ripper, and Henry the Eighth loved hunting with them. Bloodhounds became famous again in the 1970’s for being the face of the Bonio advert. But sadly the breed is now in decline, as a British Vulnerable breed, and facing extinction. Not a breed for everyone, but one that clearly has captured Karin’s heart. We discuss scent work in detail and why any dog can benefit from the enrichment of tapping into their nose potential.

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.
