Author and Journalist, Simon Garfield, joins Anna to chat about his latest non-fiction piece A Dog’s Best Friend: a brief history of an unbreakable bond. Talking about his own dogs, Simon discusses why he felt it so important to document our extraordinary journey through time with dogs, man’s best friend. We chat about why in the past 50 years there’s been a fascination with ’the dog’ and how we've perhaps begun to let dogs down. We discuss the highs, the lows, how modern science impacts our relationships and why ultimately dogs are integral to our shared humanity.

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.
