A Dog's Life with Anna Webb

This week Anna is joined by Rebecca Walters who is chatting about the amended and updated DEFRA guidance notes that accompany The Animal Welfare (Licensing of Activities Involving Animals) (England) Regulations 2018. The new guidelines were announced on February 1st 2022. As a breeder of Sproodles, Rebecca prides herself on the highest health and welfare standards and ethical breeding of her dogs. Passionate to help, inform and empower those interested in breeding dogs, or those who have been breeding dogs for years, Rebecca has launched the only OFQUAL recognised course to accredit responsible breeders called Pup Starts Breeders. As a nationally recognised qualification, it’s a surefire way to meet the UK dog breeding licensing criteria. The course is unique because it doesn’t focus on just one element. From start to finish, from planning to conception, through birth, raising and beyond!

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.
