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 4: Episode 4 [transcript]

In this episode, we discuss a UK High Court ruling regarding dog bites, a new study on Labradoodles, a beer for dogs, and we celebrate another truly remarkable Wagtastic Woof.

If your dog bites someone and you are not at home, are you responsible? In The Twilight Bark we discuss a new ruling in the UK High Court, introduced following an incident where a postal worker lost part of a finger. The ramifications for dog owners and dogs could be huge.

In the Doggler Effect we ponder one of life's great questions - what do you get if you cross a Labrador and a Poodle? The answer may not be as obvious as you might think. A U.S. study has revealed the secrets hidden in Labradoodles' DNA. Are they really the dog that we have been led to believe?

Fancy a brew? A major US brewery has launched a new doggy beer. Will it leave your hound licking its lips or is it just another example of our continued attempts to anthropomorphize our pooches?

And finally, this episode's Wagtastic Woof is the ultimate surrogate mum. Tune in to find out more.
