A Dog's Life with Anna Webb

This week Anna is joined by author, Janetta Harvey, who is also the founder of SchnauzerFest.

Supporting Schanuzers needing care and forever homes, it’s also a hub for Schnauzer owners. Inspired by Janetta’s first rescue mini Schnauzer, Susie-Belle, who was scarred being bred on a puppy farm in horrific conditions.

Passionate about campaigning to ban this evil trade, Janetta rescued one of her current four schnauzers, a boy named Albert Claude, from the one of the UK’s largest puppy farm (Eric Hale’s in NI, he was exposed in a Panorama documentary, the Dog Factory, in 2016, did nothing to stem let alone stop his horrific business), he was sold in a pet shop and given up to a rescue the next day (aged 5 months),

Her other three - Renae, Cerise and Angel are also puppy farm rescue dogs. She chats about why ending puppy farming is clearly very difficult, and discusses how hard it is to rehabilitate dogs exposed to such atrocities. Why she does this in Susie Belle’s memory, which was the subject of her book 'Saving Susie Belle'.

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.
