Pet Fire Safety Bill Discussed on WGN Radio

Appropriately fire protections are in place for children in day care facilities, but sadly not for dogs or cats in boarding facilities. I thought we NEED protections in place, a pet fire safety bill, and now there will be a law to support this in Illinois. I speak with Illinois State Senator Donald DeWitte (33rd district),…

Seeking Video of Declawed Cats

I am seeking help to spread the world about cat declaw. I want video of your declawed cats walking – even if that walking appears totally normal (or not). Over 20 years ago, I came out in the popular press and called cat declaws (Onychectomy) “barbaric.”  At around the same time, I co-authored a handout…

Sign Petition to Support Legalizing Domestic Ferrets in California

The rights of Californians to own domestic ferrets as pets is being blocked by the Sierra Club and their ignorance regarding legalizing domestic ferrets in California. “Sierra Club has long opposed holding wild animals as pets, but particularly when those animals could present a problem if they accidentally or intentionally are introduced into the state’s…

Dr. Kurt Venator, chief veterinary officer at Purina, discusses on my national Steve Dale’s Pet World radio show how Purina has gotten involved in the issue of domestic violence. I mean why would a pet food company make a concerted commitment to this topic? Venator explains that about a third of all women experience some…

Intimate Conversation with Dr. Jane Goodall

I’ve interviewed thousands, but never anyone like Dr. Jane Goodall, who should receive the next Nobel Peace Prize. My hope is that you support this effort. Dr. Goodall, who just celebrated her 85th birthday on April 3, is in person a slight women, who talks softly. Still, make no mistake about her ability to speak…

There’s No Need to Be the Alpha Dog

Last night when taking our dogs for a walk, I saw another two dog owners and their two dogs. Casually chatting, the dog owner with his older Beagle said, “Cooper gets this way when he wants to dominate me.” This guy would do anything for Cooper, and is by all accounts as kind and gentle…

Dog Dudes Remove Video

Is it a coincidence that immediately after I criticize training methods in my blog post used by hopeful Canadian TV stars wannabees known as  The Dog Dudes, they removed one of the two videos I posted?
