The award-winning Talk2ThePaw podcast explores the challenges and joys of owning a dog in the 21st century. We examine common misconceptions, try to explain where they come from, and consider how we, as caregivers, could do better to improve the lives of our canine companions. We are one part dog lover, and one part dog nerd, and truly believe the key to a happy and contented pooch lies in learning to understand the messages your dog is trying to share with you. Talk2thePaw is an interactive podcast where listeners can submit questions or share a story celebrating our four-legged friends.


episode 2: Episode 2 [transcript]

In this episode we discuss Coronavirus and its impact on dogs, canines' ability to utilise the Earth's magnetic field, we tackle a listener question on dog aggression, look at a new 'mind-reading' gadget and celebrate another truly remarkable Wagtastic Woof.

Can facemasks protect your dog during the Coronavirus pandemic or is it just another poorly conceived internet trend? Can dogs catch Covid 19? In The Twilight Bark we discuss these questions and look at a report that suggests a worrying future for our canine companions.

Do dogs have a secret inner compass?  In the Doggler Effect we examine two studies that explore our four-legged friends' ability to harness the Earth's magnetic field.

We open our Letterbox for the first time and consider an age-old question about dog aggression that has come to us all the way from the Netherlands.

Is there really a gadget that can help us decipher our mutts' moods? In Gadgets, Gizmos and Gastronomy we take a look at the evolution of activity trackers in a competitive marketplace.

And our Wagtastic Woof has been chosen to celebrate the recent International Assistance Dog Week.  Tune in and find out more!
