The Bond

This show is about all aspects of the powerful bond that exists between people and their dogs --- exploring what goes into that loving relationship for both species, and how to enhance and expand it in training and everyday life. Tracie's co-host Sarah Wilson is “the Dog Expert” because of her 25 years training people and their dogs, during which time she had nine best-selling books published and earned a masters degree in the human-animal bond.
