Dog Talk #408 (02-14-2015): Lost Cat Finder; Love Me, Feed Me; dog park attack

Dog Talk (02-14-2015) #408 Kim Freeman is “the Lost Cat Finder” and talks about how cats who get out go into “silent hiding mode” and could be hiding in the house or 100 strides in any direction from point of escape, and that Trucatch traps are best for trapping lost cats; Judith Jones, a renowned editor of many famous cookbook authors over the years, talks about the joy of cooking for her dear little dog in her book Love Me, Feed Me: Sharing with Your Dog the Everyday Good Food You Cook and Enjoy; Brandy Arnold from the DogingtonPost.com tells the horror story of her dog Noah being brutally attacked in a dog park and how she rehabilitated his subsequent fear of all dogs since — using an Adaptil collar, enrolling him in “reactive dog classes” with a good trainer, and training with him in K9 nosework to rebuild his confidence.
