Dog Talk #329 Tracie Hotchner (07-12-2013)

Dog Talk Show #329: Marta Williams’ book, MY ANIMAL, MY SELF, adds a whole new dimension to how we perceive and experience our deep connection to our pets; Melanie Kahn (Senior Director of the Puppy Mill Campaign at the Humane Society of the United States) confirms allegations in the New York Times of an unholy alliance between puppy millers — mass producers of puppies of dubious genetic health born in horrendous circumstances — and the American Kennel Club, which claims to champion responsible breeders of quality show dogs; Southampton Shelter head trainer Aimee Sadler talks about the “Playing for Life” training event she is offering July 21st — an off-leash training session free to the public (but reservation required!) at the shelter on Flanders Road.
