In the first part of a double bill celebrating Battersea Dogs and Cats home’s 160th anniversary, Anna heads south of the river to meet Vet Director, Shaun Opperman and Canine Behaviour and Training Manager, Nathalie Ingham , to chat about how the charity is adapting to the pandemic, to the specific vet needs of some popular breeds and our ‘one-click’ impulse purchases that could increasingly find dogs and cats abandoned. And why giving a dog a second chance is beyond rewarding.

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.
