A Dog's Life with Anna Webb

This week Anna is joined by John Cahill from The Blue Cross who is heading up one of the charity’s first Pet Food Banks. John and his team have set up the Sheffield food banks and others now in operation are in Manchester and in Grimsby with plans to expand nationwide. With heart breaking cases of people eating beans on toast to be able to feed their pet, others are being forced to make the difficult decision to hand them into rescues. John chats about how they’re helping vulnerable pets and their owners offering support with accessories, treats, chews and bedding also where needed. As the cost of living continues to soar, the charity is working alongside other agencies to encourage food donations for pets as well as people.

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.
