Talk2ThePaw

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 5: Episode 5 [transcript]


In this episode, we discuss the financial implications of owning a dog, a new study that has tackled the question of whether dogs can recognise their owners by their scent, the viability or otherwise of leash and collar systems, and we celebrate another truly remarkable Wagtastic Woof.

How much does it cost to care for a dog through its lifetime? In The Twilight Bark, we take a look at the assorted costs that come with dog ownership. Will you be clutching your wallet and howling in misery, or will the findings be a pleasant surprise?

In the Doggler Effect, we examine precisely how smelly you need to be for your dog to recognise you! An exciting new study from one of our dog nerd's favourite experts tries to make "scents" of the world (see what we did there?). Do dogs really see their surroundings in Smell-O-Vision?

This time in Gadgets, Gizmos and Gastronomy, we examine the world of the much-heralded multi-functional leash and collar systems. Our presenter and dog nerd go head-to-head over the necessity of yet another gadget in modern life.  Do we really need all singing and dancing dog accessories when a simple leash would suffice?

And Episode 5's Wagtastic Woof is a tearjerker. Tune in to find out why.

00:29
we'll
00:29
consider
00:29
how
00:30
and
00:30
why
00:31
these
00:31
fabulous
00:32
animals
00:33
make
00:33
such
00:33
a
00:33
huge
00:34
contribution
00:35
to
00:35
our

00:37
We're

and

South

Wales
00:55
in

Australia.
00:56

00:59
Autumn
00:59
has
00:59
well
01:00
and
01:00
truly
01:00
arrived
01:01
here
01:01
in
01:01
the
01:01
Northern
01:01
hemisphere,
01:02
so
01:03
grab
01:03
your
01:03
favorite
01:05
snugly
01:05
blanket
01:05

the

01:08
on
01:08
the

01:09

01:09

is

episode
01:11
five,
01:12
it's
01:12
time
01:13
for
01:13
The
01:14
Twilight
01:14
Bark
01:22
Time
01:22
to
01:22
see
01:23
what
01:23
news
01:23
story
01:23
has
01:24
caught
01:24
our
01:24
eye
01:25
this
01:25
time
01:25
around.
01:26
And
01:26
the
01:26
Metro
01:26
has
01:27
an
01:27
interesting
01:28
report
01:28
on
01:28
the
01:29
financial
01:29
implications
01:30
of
01:31
owning
01:31
a
01:31
dog.
01:32
The
01:32
article
01:33
cites
01:33
research
01:33
undertaken
01:34
by
01:34
NetVoucherCodes,
01:36
which
01:36
has
01:37
looked
01:37
at
01:37
42
01:38
of
01:38
the
01:38
UK's
01:38
most
01:39
popular
01:40
dog
01:40
breeds.
01:41
And
01:41
the
01:41
findings
01:42
may
01:42
have
01:42
you
01:42
clutching
01:43
fearfully
01:44
at
01:44
your
01:44
wallet.
01:45
It
01:45
reports
01:45
the
01:45
average
01:46

01:46
cost
01:47
of
01:47
food
01:48
and
01:48
treats
01:48
is
01:49
just
01:49
over
01:49
350
01:50
pounds,
01:51
for
01:51
grooming
01:52
it's
01:52
around
01:52
280
01:52
pounds,
01:53
and
01:54
pet
01:55
insurance
01:55
will
01:55
set
01:56
you
01:56
back
01:56
just
01:56
over
01:57
110
01:58
points
01:58
.
01:59
All
01:59
of
01:59
this
01:59
of
01:59
course,
02:00
is
02:00
breed
02:01
dependent
02:01
with
02:02
owners
02:02
of
02:02
St.
02:03
Bernard's
02:03
expected
02:04
to
02:04
pay
02:04
as
02:05
much
02:05
as
02:05
17
02:06
and
02:06
a
02:06
half
02:06
thousand
02:07
pounds
02:08
over
02:08
the
02:08
course
02:09
of
02:09
a
02:09
dog's
02:09
lifetime.
02:09
Scott,
02:10
I
02:11
think
02:11
some
02:11
people
02:12
might
02:12
find
02:12
these
02:13
figures
02:13
quite
02:13
alarming,
02:14
but
02:14
do
02:15
they
02:15
surprise
02:15
you?
02:16  Scott Andrews
No,
02:17
not
02:17
really.
02:18
If
02:18
you've
02:18
listened
02:19
to
02:19
the
02:19
episode
02:19
where
02:19
we
02:19
were
02:20
talking
02:20
about
02:20
coronavirus,
02:21
we
02:21
actually
02:21
looked
02:22
at
02:22
a
02:22
dog's
02:22
trust
02:22
report
02:23
that
02:23
mentioned
02:24
,
02:24
uh
02:24
,
02:24
an
02:24
astronomical
02:25
inflation
02:26
in
02:26
the
02:26
cost
02:26
of
02:26
dogs.
02:27
Pre-lock
02:27
down,
02:27
the
02:28
price
02:28
of
02:28
a
02:28
puppy
02:29
was
02:29
about
02:29
1000
02:29
pound
02:29
on
02:30
average,
02:30
after
02:31
lockdown
02:31
it's
02:31
gone
02:32
up
02:32
by
02:32
about
02:32
155%.
02:34
So
02:34
now
02:34
you'd
02:34
be
02:34
looking
02:35
at
02:35
paying
02:35
almost
02:35
two
02:35
and
02:35
a
02:36
half
02:36
thousand
02:36
pound.
02:37  Caroline Bartley
The
02:37
article
02:37
had
02:37
mentioned
02:39
specific
02:39
breeds
02:40
and
02:41
associated
02:41
costs
02:42
for
02:42
those
02:43
breeds,
02:43
but
02:44
on
02:44
a
02:44
more
02:44
general
02:45
tone,
02:45
is
02:45
there
02:46
any
02:46
figures
02:47
cited
02:47
for
02:48
the
02:48
average
02:48
lifetime
02:49
cost
02:49
of
02:49
owning
02:49
a
02:49
dog?
02:50  Scott Andrews
Yes.
02:51
So
02:51
thep
02:52
give
02:52
the
02:52
figure
02:52
of
02:53
11,162
02:54
pounds
02:55
and
02:55
11
02:55
Pence
02:56
for
02:56
a
02:56
lifetime
02:57
of
02:57
an
02:57
average
02:58
dog.
02:58
But
02:58
the
02:59
question
02:59
you've
02:59
really
03:00
got
03:00
to
03:00
think
03:00
about
03:00
is
03:01
what
03:01
makes
03:01
an
03:01
average
03:01
dog?
03:02  Caroline Bartley
That's
03:03
almost
03:03
like
03:03
saying
03:03
what
03:04
makes
03:04
an
03:04
average
03:04
human.
03:05  Scott Andrews
Bear
03:05
in
03:05
mind
03:06
that
03:06
the
03:06
criteria
03:07
for
03:07
this
03:07
study,
03:07
they
03:07
looked
03:07
at
03:08
42
03:08
breeds.
03:08
Now
03:10
we're
03:10
talking
03:11
breeds,
03:11
pedigree
03:12
breeds.
03:12
We're
03:12
not
03:12
talking
03:13
mongrels,
03:13
mutts
03:13
and
03:14
the
03:14
heinz
03:15
variety
03:15
that
03:16
make
03:16
our
03:16
lives
03:16
so
03:17
much
03:17
better.
03:17  Caroline Bartley
Yeah,
03:17
to
03:18
be
03:18
fair,
03:18
which
03:18
is
03:18
probably
03:19
the
03:19
kind
03:20
of
03:20
dogs
03:20
that
03:20
most
03:21
of
03:21
us
03:21
have,
03:21
well
03:22
certainly
03:22
mine
03:22
is
03:23
a
03:23
little
03:23
mongrel.
03:24  Scott Andrews
In
03:24
the
03:24
case
03:25
of
03:25
mongrels
03:25
the
03:25
price
03:26
will
03:26
be
03:26
different
03:26
if
03:26
you
03:26
actually
03:27
look
03:27
at
03:27
,
03:28
um
03:28
,
03:28
take,
03:28
for
03:28
instance,
03:29
the
03:29
Standard
03:29
Poodle,
03:30
the
03:30
estimated
03:30
cost
03:31
for
03:31
a
03:31
lifetime
03:31
is
03:31
18
03:32
and
03:32
a
03:32
half
03:32
thousand
03:33
pounds.
03:34  Caroline Bartley
Okay.
03:35
Clutching
03:35
my
03:35
wallet.
03:36  Scott Andrews
One
03:37
of
03:37
the
03:37
things
03:37
that
03:38
,
03:38
um,
03:38
PETA
03:39
highlighted
03:40
regarding
03:40
this
03:40
report
03:41
is
03:41
that
03:42
there
03:42
are
03:42
a
03:42
number
03:42
of
03:43
,
03:43
um,
03:43
pedigree
03:44
breeds
03:44
that
03:44
have
03:45
common
03:46
medical
03:46
issues
03:47
associated
03:47
with
03:47
them.
03:48
So
03:48
in
03:48
the
03:49
Poodle's
03:49
case,
03:49
it
03:49
would
03:49
be
03:50
progressive
03:50
vision
03:50
loss,
03:51
seizures,
03:52
diabetes,
03:53
and
03:53
a
03:53
collapsing
03:54
trachea.
03:55
I
03:55
suppose
03:56
my
03:56
point
03:56
is
03:56
that
03:57
not
03:57
every
03:57
Poodle's
03:57
going
03:58
to
03:58
experience
03:58
that
03:59
in
03:59
their
03:59
lifetime,
03:59
there
03:59
are
04:00
going
04:00
to
04:00
be
04:00
plenty
04:00
of
04:00
Poodles
04:01
that
04:01
are
04:01
healthy.
04:02
In
04:03
my
04:03
opinion
04:03
at
04:03
least,
04:04
this
04:04
study
04:04
is
04:04
very
04:05
much
04:05
looking
04:06
at
04:06
the
04:06
worst
04:06
case
04:06
scenarios.
04:08  Caroline Bartley
Do
04:08
you
04:08
think
04:08
that
04:08
people
04:09
think
04:09
about
04:10
the
04:11
financial
04:11
implications
04:12
of
04:12
actually
04:13
owning
04:13
a
04:13
dog?
04:13
Before
04:14
someone
04:15
gets
04:15
a
04:15
dog
04:15
is
04:16
that
04:16
something
04:17
that
04:17
they
04:17
should
04:18
take
04:18
into
04:18
account?
04:19  Scott Andrews
Absolutely.
04:20
You
04:21
know,
04:21
right
04:21
now
04:22
puppy
04:22
prices
04:22
have
04:22
gone
04:23
through
04:23
the
04:23
roof.
04:23
As
04:23
we
04:24
mentioned
04:24
before,
04:24
due
04:25
to
04:25
COVID
04:25
and
04:25
the
04:25
lockdown,
04:26
there
04:26
are
04:26
a
04:26
number
04:26
of
04:27
puppies
04:27
being
04:27
returned
04:28
to
04:28
dog
04:28
shelters
04:29
as
04:29
it
04:29
stands,
04:29
and
04:30
they're
04:30
not
04:30
very
04:30
much
04:31
older.
04:31
Obviously
04:32
you've
04:32
got
04:32
assorted
04:32
anxiety
04:33
issues
04:33
to
04:33
deal
04:33
with.
04:33
The
04:34
fact
04:34
is
04:34
if
04:34
you
04:35
was
04:35
to
04:35
take
04:36
a
04:36
puppy
04:36
from
04:36
the
04:36
Dog's
04:36
Trust
04:37
for
04:37
example,
04:38
you
04:39
would
04:39
pay
04:40
150
04:40
pounds.
04:40
And
04:40
that
04:41
would
04:41
be
04:41
it.
04:41
Now,
04:41
as
04:42
we're
04:42
talking
04:42
about
04:42
average
04:42
lifetime
04:43
costs,
04:43
if
04:44
you
04:44
buy
04:44
a
04:44
puppy,
04:45
the
04:45
average
04:46
lifespan
04:46
for
04:46
a
04:46
dog
04:46
is
04:46
about
04:47
12
04:47
years.
04:48
Whereas
04:48
if
04:48
you
04:49
rescue
04:49
a
04:49
six,
04:49
seven,
04:50
eight
04:50
year
04:50
old
04:50
dog,
04:51
you
04:51
can
04:51
cut
04:51
that
04:51
price
04:51
in
04:52
half.
04:52
Granted,
04:53
okay.
04:54
The
04:54
insurance
04:54
cost
04:55
may
04:55
be
04:55
different.
04:55
The
04:56
average
04:56
yearly
04:56
cost,
04:57
according
04:57
to
04:57
this
04:57
report
04:58
for
04:58
pet
04:58
insurance
04:59
is
04:59
111
04:59
pounds.
05:00
My
05:01
own
05:01
dog
05:01
who
05:02
has
05:02
had
05:02
a,
05:03
my
05:03
Scottish
05:03
terrier.
05:04
You
05:04
know,
05:04
he
05:05
has
05:05
,
05:05
um
05:05
,
05:05
a
05:05
chronic
05:06
illness
05:06
with
05:06
no
05:07
cure.
05:08
I've
05:08
probably
05:08
spent
05:08
close
05:09
on
05:09
eight
05:09
to
05:10
nine
05:10
thousand
05:10
pounds
05:10
in
05:11
his
05:11
lifetime
05:11
on
05:12
vet
05:12
bills
05:12
alone.
05:13  Caroline Bartley
I
05:13
think
05:13
most,
05:14
most
05:14
people,
05:14
sorry
05:14
to
05:14
interrupt,
05:15
would
05:15
find
05:15
that
05:16
astronomical
05:16
actually.
05:17  Scott Andrews
Exactly.
05:18
And
05:18
there
05:18
aren't
05:18
many
05:18
insurers
05:19
in
05:19
the
05:19
world
05:19
who
05:19
are
05:19
gonna
05:20
offer
05:20
me
05:20
110
05:20
pounds
05:21
a
05:21
year.
05:22
So
05:23
you've
05:23
got
05:24
that
05:24
to
05:24
consider.
05:25
One
05:25
of
05:25
the
05:25
things
05:26
that
05:26
struck
05:26
me
05:26
as
05:26
odd
05:27
was
05:27
the
05:27
average
05:28
cost
05:28
of
05:28
grooming
05:28
they
05:29
gave
05:29
was
05:30
278
05:29
pounds.
05:30
Personally,
05:31
with
05:31
my
05:32
own
05:32
dog,
05:32
I
05:32
am
05:33
paying
05:33
160
05:34
pounds
05:34
a
05:34
year.
05:35  Caroline Bartley
Well,
05:35
obviously
05:35
it
05:35
depends
05:36
what
05:36
you're
05:36
getting
05:36
done,
05:36
it
05:37
depends
05:37
on
05:37
the
05:37
breed
05:37
of
05:37
the
05:37
dog,
05:37
how
05:38
they
05:39
have
05:39
to
05:39
have
05:39
their
05:39
coat
05:39
done,
05:40
it
05:41
also
05:41
depends
05:41
on
05:41
the
05:41
size
05:42
of
05:42
the
05:42
dog
05:42
.
05:43  Scott Andrews
There's
05:43
another
05:43
example,
05:44
if
05:44
you
05:44
are
05:44
looking
05:44
to
05:44
get
05:45
a
05:45
dog,
05:45
if
05:45
you're
05:45
looking
05:45
to
05:45
rescue
05:46
a
05:46
dog
05:46
and
05:46
you're
05:46
trying
05:46
to
05:47
keep
05:47
your
05:47
costs
05:47
down,
05:47
you
05:48
have
05:48
to
05:48
take
05:48
a
05:48
good
05:48
look
05:48
at
05:48
the
05:48
fur.
05:48
Take
05:49
for
05:49
example,
05:50
a
05:50
Boston
05:51
terrier.
05:51
They
05:51
don't
05:51
know
05:52
have
05:52
hair,
05:52
they
05:52
don't
05:52
need
05:52
cutting,
05:52
they
05:53
don't
05:53
need
05:53
grooming,
05:53
they
05:53
don't
05:53
need
05:54
a
05:54
blow
05:54
dry.
05:54
In
05:54
some
05:55
respects,
05:55
there
05:55
are
05:55
certain
05:56
breeds
05:56
of
05:56
dog
05:56
that
05:57
you
05:57
wouldn't
05:57
have
05:57
that
05:58
cost.
05:58
Another
05:59
price
05:59
that
05:59
struck
05:59
me
06:00
was
06:00
the
06:00
average
06:01
cost
06:01
of
06:01
food
06:01
and
06:01
treats
06:02
350
06:03
pounds,
06:03  Caroline Bartley
Which
06:04
to
06:04
me
06:04
seems
06:04
quite
06:05
cheap
06:05
actually.
06:05  Scott Andrews
Well,
06:06
the
06:06
fact
06:06
is
06:06
when
06:06
I
06:07
train
06:07
with
06:07
my
06:07
own
06:07
dog,
06:08
I
06:08
often
06:08
use
06:08
cheese,
06:09
cooked
06:09
chicken,
06:09
little
06:10
bits
06:10
of
06:10
sausage.
06:11
There
06:11
are
06:11
a
06:11
lot
06:11
of
06:12
things
06:12
that
06:12
I
06:12
use
06:13
that
06:13
comparatively
06:14
to
06:14
go
06:14
into
06:15
a
06:15
pet
06:15
shop
06:15
and
06:15
paying
06:16
two
06:16
pound
06:16
or
06:16
three
06:16
pound
06:17
for
06:17
a
06:17
bag
06:17
of
06:17
28
06:18
treats.
06:19
It's
06:20
another
06:20
way
06:20
in
06:20
which
06:21
you
06:21
can
06:21
make
06:21
a
06:22
saving
06:22
.
06:22
And
06:22
finally
06:22
they
06:23
estimate
06:23
the
06:23
year
06:23
,
06:23
the
06:23
cost
06:23
of
06:23
toys
06:24
and
06:24
equipment
06:25
77
06:26
pounds.
06:28  Caroline Bartley
Again
06:28
I
06:28
think
06:29
that's
06:29
quite
06:29
cheap.
06:30  Scott Andrews
Really,
06:31
to
06:31
me,
06:31
that
06:31
sounds
06:31
like
06:31
you're
06:31
buying
06:32
your
06:32
dog
06:32
an
06:32
iPhone.
06:33  Caroline Bartley
No
06:33
,
06:33
maybe
06:33
this
06:33
is
06:34
the
06:34
survey
06:35
is
06:35
,
06:35
is
06:35
saying
06:35
too
06:35
much
06:36
about
06:36
me.
06:36
Maybe
06:36
I
06:37
should
06:37
just,
06:37
I
06:37
should
06:37
just
06:38
quit
06:38
talking
06:38
now?
06:39  Scott Andrews
Well
06:39
look
06:39
in
06:39
all
06:39
honesty,
06:40
I
06:40
do
06:40
have
06:40
at
06:40
least
06:40
two
06:41
boxes
06:41
of
06:41
toys
06:42
that
06:42
my
06:42
dogs
06:42
have
06:43
no
06:43
interest
06:43
in
06:43
whatsoever.
06:43
Certain
06:45
dogs
06:46
prefer
06:46
to
06:46
play
06:46
in
06:46
certain
06:46
ways
06:47
and
06:48
if
06:48
you
06:48
can
06:48
identify
06:49
that
06:49
quickly,
06:49
that
06:50
will
06:50
save
06:50
you
06:50
a
06:50
lot
06:50
of
06:50
money.
06:52
Um
06:52
,
06:52
for
06:52
instance,
06:52
Labradors,
06:53
they're
06:53
the
06:54
greatest
06:54
connoisseurs
06:55
of
06:55
fetch
06:55
as
06:55
we
06:55
were
06:56
talking
06:56
about
06:56
in
06:56
the
06:56
last
06:56
episode.
06:57
What
06:58
more
06:58
do
06:58
you
06:58
need
06:58
for
06:58
a
06:58
Labrador
06:58
than
06:58
a
06:58
ball
06:58
to
06:58
chase?
07:00  Caroline Bartley
I
07:01
have
07:01
this
07:01
experience
07:01
myself.
07:02
When
07:02
my
07:02
boy
07:03
was
07:03
younger,
07:04
you
07:04
buy
07:04
them
07:04
expensive
07:05
toys
07:05
and
07:05
then
07:05
they
07:05
end
07:05
up
07:06
playing
07:06
with
07:06
the
07:06
box
07:08  Scott Andrews
To
07:08
be
07:08
fair
07:08
with
07:09
one
07:09
of
07:09
our
07:09
dogs
07:10
last
07:10
Christmas
07:10
she
07:10
had
07:10
more
07:11
joy
07:11
opening
07:11
her
07:11
Christmas
07:12
presents
07:13
on
07:13
Christmas
07:13
Eve,
07:15
just
07:15
because
07:15
the
07:15
paper,
07:16
she
07:16
wasn't
07:17
interested
07:17
in
07:17
what
07:17
was
07:18
inside
07:18
of
07:18
it,
07:18
but
07:19
the
07:19
paper
07:19
was
07:19
shredded
07:20
all
07:20
over
07:20
the
07:20
hallway.
07:21  Caroline Bartley
That's
07:21
right,
07:21
it
07:21
was
07:21
knocking
07:22
over
07:22
the
07:22
Christmas
07:22
tree,
07:22
I
07:23
remember
07:23
you
07:23
saying,
07:24
and
07:24
then
07:24
picking
07:25
her
07:25
present
07:25
and
07:25
opening
07:26
it.
07:27  Scott Andrews
She
07:27
had
07:27
a
07:28
proper
07:28
Merry
07:28
Christmas.
07:29
There
07:29
are
07:30
ways
07:30
in
07:30
which
07:31
you
07:31
can
07:31
save
07:31
money.
07:32  Caroline Bartley
But
07:33
if
07:33
you
07:33
want
07:33
a
07:33
pedigree
07:34
dog
07:35
and
07:35
perhaps
07:35
your
07:35
financial
07:36
circumstances
07:37
are
07:37
such
07:38
that
07:38
you
07:38
can't
07:38
afford
07:39
to
07:39
pay
07:40
tens
07:40
of
07:40
thousands
07:41
of
07:41
pounds
07:41
a
07:41
year
07:42
in
07:43
looking
07:44
after
07:44
the
07:44
dog,
07:45
are
07:45
there
07:45
any
07:45
more
07:46
amenable
07:48
options
07:49
that
07:49
you
07:49
can
07:49
use
07:49
that
07:50
you
07:50
can
07:50
take
07:50
advantage
07:50
of?
07:51  Scott Andrews
But
07:51
certainly
07:51
within
07:52
breeds,
07:52
often
07:52
smaller
07:53
dogs
07:53
do
07:54
cost
07:54
less.
07:55
Within
07:55
the
07:55
study,
07:55
they
07:55
come
07:55
up
07:55
with
07:56
the
07:56
five
07:56
cheapest
07:56
dogs.
07:57
It's
07:57
the,
07:58
Patterdale
07:58
the
07:58
Jack
07:58
Russell,
07:59
the
08:00
Staffordshire
08:00
terrier.
08:01
So
08:01
Staffies
08:01
who
08:02
honestly,
08:03
you
08:03
can
08:03
find
08:03
in
08:03
abundance
08:04
in
08:04
dog
08:04
shelters.
08:04
Whippets
08:06
and
08:06
Boston
08:06
terriers.
08:07
Each
08:07
of
08:07
these
08:08
dogs
08:08
cost
08:09
on
08:09
average,
08:10
somewhere
08:10
between
08:10
seven
08:11
and
08:11
eight
08:11
thousand
08:12
pound
08:12
in
08:12
their
08:12
lifetime,
08:13
which
08:13
is
08:13
considerably
08:14
less,
08:14
you
08:14
know.
08:14
When
08:15
you're
08:15
looking
08:15
at
08:15
the
08:15
other
08:15
end
08:15
of
08:16
the
08:16
scale,
08:17
they're
08:17
ranging
08:17
from
08:17
14,000
08:18
to
08:18
18,000.
08:19
No
08:20
Standard
08:20
Poodles
08:20
being
08:21
the
08:21
tops
08:21
and
08:21
St.
08:21
Bernard's,
08:22
Chow
08:22
Chows,
08:22
and
08:23
much
08:23
to
08:24
our
08:24
surprise,
08:24
we
08:24
were
08:24
talking
08:25
last
08:25
episode
08:25
about
08:25
Labradoodle.
08:25
They're
08:29
within
08:29
the
08:29
range
08:29
of
08:29
the
08:29
most
08:30
expensive.
08:31
There
08:31
is
08:31
a
08:31
great
08:32
difference.
08:32
That's
08:32
about
08:32
a
08:32
10,000
08:33
pound
08:33
difference
08:34
in
08:34
itself.
08:35  Caroline Bartley
And
08:35
who
08:35
doesn't
08:35
love
08:35
a
08:36
Jack
08:36
Russell?
08:36
I
08:36
had
08:36
a
08:36
Jack
08:37
Russell
08:37
when
08:37
I
08:37
was
08:37
growing
08:38
up
08:38
and
08:38
he
08:38
was
08:38
just,
08:39
he
08:39
was
08:40
a
08:40
little
08:40
tiny
08:41
white
08:41
and
08:42
tan
08:42
thing
08:42
and
08:43
just
08:43
a
08:43
bundle
08:44
of
08:44
energy.
08:45
And
08:45
I
08:45
found
08:46
really
08:46
good
08:46
around
08:47
,
08:47
uh
08:47
,
08:48
I
08:48
was
08:48
when
08:48
I
08:48
was
08:48
about
08:49
seven
08:49
or
08:49
eight
08:49
at
08:49
the
08:49
time.
08:50
So
08:50
really
08:50
good
08:50
with
08:51
kids,
08:51
but
08:51
Jack
08:52
Russells
08:52
always
08:52
a
08:52
great
08:52
option.
08:53  Scott Andrews
One
08:53
of
08:54
the
08:54
biggest
08:54
mistakes
08:54
prospective
08:55
dog
08:55
owners
08:55
make
08:56
is
08:56
that
08:56
we
08:57
buy
08:57
the
08:57
dog
08:57
for
08:57
the
08:58
lifestyle
08:58
we
08:58
want.
08:59
We
08:59
don't
09:00
buy
09:00
the
09:00
dog
09:00
for
09:00
the
09:00
lifestyle
09:01
that
09:01
we
09:01
have.
09:02  Caroline Bartley
Just
09:02
to
09:03
finish
09:03
off
09:03
Scott.
09:04
Anything
09:04
else
09:05
that
09:05
you
09:06
have
09:06
taken
09:06
from
09:06
the
09:06
survey?
09:07  Scott Andrews
First
09:07
and
09:08
foremost
09:08
,
09:08
if
09:09
you
09:09
are
09:09
looking
09:09
to
09:09
get
09:10
a
09:10
discount
09:10
dog,
09:11
so
09:11
to
09:11
speak,
09:11
your
09:12
best
09:12
path
09:12
of
09:12
action
09:13
don't
09:13
buy
09:13
a
09:13
puppy,
09:14
look
09:14
to
09:14
adopt.
09:15
If
09:15
you're
09:15
adopting,
09:16
you're
09:16
looking
09:17
in
09:17
most
09:17
places,
09:17
now
09:18
I
09:18
mentioned
09:18
the
09:19
figure
09:19
from
09:19
the
09:19
Dog's
09:19
Trust
09:19
-
09:19
150
09:20
pounds
09:21
to
09:21
take
09:21
the
09:21
dog
09:21
home.
09:22
So
09:23
that's
09:23
your
09:23
first
09:23
saving
09:24
between
09:25
that
09:25
and
09:25
a
09:25
puppy,
09:26
a
09:26
puppy
09:27
post
09:27
lockdown,
09:28
that's
09:28
a
09:28
saving
09:29
of
09:29
2,500
09:30
pounds,
09:32
which
09:33
is
09:33
considerable.
09:34
The
09:34
second
09:35
thing
09:35
to
09:35
consider
09:36
older
09:36
dogs.
09:36
Now
09:38
obviously,
09:39
depending
09:40
on
09:40
your
09:40
lifestyle,
09:40
depending
09:41
if
09:41
you've
09:41
got
09:41
kids,
09:42
an
09:42
older
09:42
dog
09:42
may
09:42
not
09:42
be
09:42
as
09:43
active
09:43
as
09:43
you'd
09:43
want.
09:44  Caroline Bartley
Yeah.
09:44
And
09:44
sorry
09:45
to
09:45
interrupt,
09:45
but
09:46
again,
09:46
an
09:47
older
09:47
dog
09:48
and
09:48
you
09:48
sort
09:48
of
09:48
alluded
09:49
to
09:49
it
09:49
there,
09:50
there
09:50
are
09:50
only
09:51
certain
09:52
familial
09:52
circumstances
09:53
and
09:53
households
09:55
that
09:55
you
09:55
will
09:55
be
09:55
able
09:55
to
09:56
take
09:56
those
09:56
dogs
09:56
into.
09:57  Scott Andrews
Yes
09:57
.
09:57
Certainly,
09:57
but,
09:58
the
09:59
good
09:59
shelters
10:00
and
10:00
say,
10:00
for
10:00
example,
10:01
I
10:01
keep
10:01
mentioning
10:01
the
10:01
Dog's
10:01
Trust
10:02
because
10:02
it
10:02
is
10:02
recognizable
10:03
as
10:03
a
10:04
nationwide
10:04
brand
10:05
with
10:06
certain
10:06
standards
10:06
and
10:06
protocols.
10:07
They
10:08
will
10:08
have
10:08
already
10:09
tested
10:09
and
10:09
tried
10:10
to
10:10
identify
10:11
what
10:11
the
10:11
dog
10:11
likes
10:12
and
10:12
dislikes
10:12
and
10:12
whether
10:13
the
10:13
dog
10:13
can
10:13
be
10:13
in
10:13
a
10:13
home
10:13
with
10:14
cats
10:14
or
10:14
dogs
10:14
or
10:15
kids?
10:15  Caroline Bartley
Small
10:15
children
10:16
that's
10:16
right.
10:16
Yeah.
10:17  Scott Andrews
So
10:17
in
10:17
that
10:17
respect,
10:18
they
10:18
would
10:18
have
10:18
done
10:18
the
10:18
hard
10:18
work
10:18
for
10:19
you.
10:19
Second
10:20
thing
10:20
to
10:20
consider.
10:20
So,
10:21
you
10:21
know
10:21
,
10:21
obviously
10:21
with
10:21
the
10:22
older
10:22
dog,
10:22
the
10:22
dog's
10:22
going
10:23
to
10:23
live
10:23
less
10:23
years
10:23
which
10:24
means
10:24
that
10:25
entire
10:25
cost
10:25
over
10:25
the
10:26
lifetime
10:26
is
10:26
going
10:26
to
10:27
be
10:27
less
10:27
.
10:28  Caroline Bartley
But
10:28
the
10:28
upside
10:28
of
10:29
that
10:29
is
10:29
you're
10:30
giving
10:30
a
10:30
dog,
10:31
hopefully
10:31
what
10:32
will
10:32
be
10:32
a
10:33
beautifully,
10:34
comfortable,
10:35
and
10:36
lovely
10:37
home
10:37
for
10:37
the
10:38
remainder
10:38
of
10:38
its
10:38
lifetime,
10:39
which
10:39
is
10:39
surely
10:39
a
10:39
benefit
10:40
in
10:40
itself.
10:40  Scott Andrews
It's
10:41
a
10:41
benefit
10:41
and
10:42
it's
10:42
a
10:42
wonderful
10:42
thing.
10:43
You
10:43
think
10:43
if
10:43
you're
10:43
getting
10:44
a
10:44
dog
10:44
that
10:45
is
10:45
older
10:45
or
10:45
say
10:46
half
10:46
way
10:46
through
10:46
his
10:46
lifetime,
10:47
that
10:47
might
10:48
be,
10:48
if
10:48
it's
10:49
a
10:49
smaller
10:49
dog,
10:49
like
10:49
a
10:49
Jack
10:50
Russell
10:50
that
10:50
could
10:50
be
10:50
another
10:51
4,000
10:51
pounds
10:51
saved.
10:53
The
10:53
other
10:53
good
10:53
thing
10:53
when
10:53
you
10:53
do
10:54
take
10:54
a
10:54
dog
10:54
from
10:54
a
10:54
shelter
10:55
because
10:55
they
10:55
have
10:55
their
10:55
own
10:55
vets
10:56
and
10:56
their
10:56
own
10:56
medical
10:56
testing.
10:57
The
10:57
number
10:58
of
10:58
times
10:58
I've
10:59
heard
10:59
stories
11:00
where
11:00
people
11:01
have
11:01
gone
11:01
to
11:01
buy
11:01
puppies
11:01
from
11:02
breeders,
11:02
12
11:02
months
11:03
down
11:03
the
11:03
line,
11:03
they
11:03
discover
11:03
that
11:04
there
11:04
is
11:04
a
11:04
medical
11:04
problem.
11:05
Very
11:06
often
11:06
luxating
11:07
patellas,
11:07
or
11:08
it
11:09
could
11:09
be
11:09
something
11:10
else
11:10
going
11:10
on
11:10
that
11:11
they
11:11
weren't
11:11
aware
11:11
of,
11:11
they
11:12
didn't
11:12
budget
11:12
for
11:13
it
11:13
.
11:13
Realistically,
11:14
this
11:14
is
11:14
something
11:14
that
11:14
needs
11:14
to
11:14
be
11:15
checked.
11:16
If
11:16
you
11:16
do
11:16
all
11:17
of
11:17
those
11:17
things,
11:18
one,
11:19
you're
11:19
still
11:19
going
11:19
to
11:19
get
11:20
a
11:20
dog,
11:20
you're
11:20
still
11:20
going
11:20
to
11:21
be
11:21
able
11:21
to
11:21
share
11:21
your
11:21
life
11:22
with
11:23
one
11:23
of
11:23
the
11:23
most
11:23
wonderful
11:23
creatures
11:24
that
11:24
walk
11:24
this
11:24
Earth.
11:24
Two
11:24
you
11:24
are
11:24
going
11:24
to
11:25
be
11:26
able
11:26
to
11:26
do
11:26
it
11:26
on
11:26
a
11:26
discount.
11:26
And
11:28
three
11:29
most
11:29
important
11:29
of
11:29
all,
11:30
you
11:31
are
11:31
giving
11:32
a
11:32
second
11:32
chance.
11:33
It's
11:33
the
11:33
most
11:34
magnificent
11:34
thing
11:35
you
11:35
can
11:35
do.
11:36  Caroline Bartley
And
11:36
also
11:37
if
11:37
I
11:37
can
11:37
just
11:37
make
11:38
this
11:38
final
11:38
point
11:39
when
11:39
you're
11:39
taking
11:40
a
11:40
dog
11:40
from
11:41
,
11:41
um
11:41
,
11:41
an
11:42
animal
11:42
shelter,
11:43
or
11:43
as
11:43
you
11:43
mentioned,
11:43
somewhere
11:44
like
11:44
the
11:44
Dogs
11:44
Trust.
11:45
That
11:45
dog
11:46
will
11:46
be
11:46
microchipped,
11:46
that
11:47
dog
11:48
will
11:48
also
11:49
be
11:49
neutered
11:50
or
11:50
spayed
11:51
if
11:51
it's
11:51
a
11:51
female.
11:54  Scott Andrews
And
11:54
vaccinated
11:54
as
11:54
well.
11:55  Caroline Bartley
Of
11:55
course,
11:55
I
11:55
forgot
11:56
about
11:56
that.
11:56
So
11:57
those
11:57
are
11:57
other
11:58
sort
11:59
of
11:59
additional
11:59
cost
11:59
saving
12:00
measures
12:00
to
12:00
take
12:00
into
12:01
account
12:01
as
12:01
well.
12:02  Scott Andrews
Yes,
12:02
if
12:02
you're
12:02
scared
12:03
by
12:03
these
12:03
price
12:03
tags
12:04
pay
12:04
a
12:04
visit
12:04
to
12:04
your
12:05
local
12:05
dog
12:05
shelters,
12:05
see
12:06
if
12:06
you
12:06
can
12:06
make
12:06
a
12:06
miracle
12:07
happen
12:07
this
12:07
year.
12:21  Caroline Bartley
You
12:22
join
12:22
us
12:22
deep
12:22
in
12:23
the
12:23
heart
12:23
of
12:23
Paw
12:23
HQ,
12:25
and
12:25
we're
12:25
ready
12:26
to
12:26
get
12:26
to
12:26
grips
12:26
with
12:27
the
12:27
latest
12:27
doggy
12:27
science
12:28
and
12:29
this
12:29
time,
12:29
Scott,
12:30
I
12:30
believe
12:30
we're
12:30
focusing
12:31
on
12:31
why
12:32
a
12:32
dog's
12:32
sense
12:33
of
12:33
smell
12:34
is
12:34
so
12:34
crucially
12:35
important?
12:35  Scott Andrews
As
12:36
we've
12:36
discussed
12:36
on
12:36
previous
12:37
episodes,
12:37
we
12:38
know
12:38
that
12:38
dogs
12:38
live
12:39
their
12:39
lives
12:39
through
12:39
their
12:39
noses.
12:40
We
12:40
know
12:40
that
12:40
when
12:41
they're
12:41
born,
12:41
their
12:42
eyes
12:42
are
12:42
closed,
12:42
their
12:42
ears
12:42
are
12:43
closed
12:43
and
12:43
they're
12:44
living
12:44
just
12:45
through
12:45
their
12:45
noses.
12:47
There's
12:47
some
12:47
evidence
12:47
to
12:48
say
12:48
that
12:48
dogs
12:48
are
12:48
able
12:49
to
12:49
smell
12:49
a
12:49
scent
12:49
that's
12:50
been
12:50
left
12:50
behind
12:51
up
12:51
to
12:52
six
12:52
weeks
12:52
previously.
12:53
It
12:53
is
12:54
the
12:54
most
12:54
important
12:55
organ
12:55
for
12:55
a
12:55
dog.
12:56  Caroline Bartley
But
12:56
this
12:56
has
12:57
surely
12:57
all
12:57
been
12:57
covered
12:58
in
12:58
previous
12:58
studies,
12:59
there
12:59
can't
12:59
be
13:00
anything
13:00
new
13:00
to
13:00
this
13:01
can
13:01
there?
13:01  Scott Andrews
And
13:01
you'd
13:01
be
13:01
really
13:02
surprised
13:02
to
13:02
learn
13:03
that
13:03
most
13:03
studies
13:03
are
13:03
focused
13:04
on
13:04
,
13:04
um,
13:05
visual
13:05
or
13:05
auditory
13:06
stimuli
13:07
and
13:07
not
13:07
olfaction.
13:08
There's
13:08
previous
13:09
research
13:09
done
13:09
that
13:10
have
13:09
checked
13:10
if
13:10
dogs
13:11
recognize
13:11
their
13:11
humans
13:12
by
13:12
sound,
13:12
by
13:13
facial
13:13
expressions.
13:13
There
13:14
has
13:14
been
13:15
some
13:15
olfaction
13:16
research,
13:16
the
13:16
main
13:17
parts
13:17
being
13:17
proving
13:18
that
13:18
dogs
13:18
are
13:18
able
13:19
to
13:19
distinguish
13:20
their
13:20
own
13:20
urine
13:20
from
13:21
another
13:21
dog's
13:21
urine
13:21
.
13:22
They've
13:23
also
13:23
managed
13:23
to
13:23
prove
13:23
that
13:24
dogs
13:24
can
13:24
track
13:24
direction
13:25
of
13:25
movement
13:25
through
13:25
smell.
13:25
Interestingly,
13:25
and
13:29
this
13:30
is
13:30
where
13:30
things
13:30
get
13:30
really
13:30
weird.
13:31
They've
13:32
also
13:32
proved
13:33
that
13:33
African
13:33
elephants
13:34
can
13:34
distinguish
13:35
humans
13:35
by
13:35
sense
13:35
.
13:35
When
13:36
you
13:36
think
13:36
that
13:36
the
13:36
level
13:36
of
13:36
research
13:37
done
13:38
into
13:38
scent
13:39
is
13:39
almost
13:39
