Anna hosts a roundtable discussion on Pet Theft Reform: she’s joined by former conservative party leader, Sir Iain Duncan Smith MP, Debbie Matthews from Vets Get Scanning and Journalist & Patron of Stolen & Missing Pets Alliance (SAMPA) Beverley Cuddy.
We’re also joined by Melina Georgiou whose dog Nala was stolen. She talks candidly about the horror of Nala’s theft, which traumatised her whole family, and the emotional scars. Thankfully Nala was one of the lucky dogs and was reunited.
We discuss why there is need for URGENT changes to the law to become a deterrent for this high reward / zero penalty crime where dogs are still labelled as chattel in a court of law.

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.
